Pressure Transducer Family Adds Higher G Members

Expanding the Endevco model 8510B series miniature, rugged, high-sensitivity piezoresistive pressure transducers are higher-g range models. Available in sensitivities of 200, 500 and 2,000 psig with a 300 mV full-scale output, higher range transducers offer the same rugged four-active arm strain bridge and silicon diaphragm design as low range series models, along with integral temperature compensation from -18°C to +93°C. Units offer high resonance frequencies for accurate measurements over the full audio range, with five times minimum burst pressure and 20-kg shock survivability. The components use a 10-32 thread with optional metric threads available upon request. MEGGITT SENSING SYSTEMS, San Juan Capistrano, CA. (949) 493-8181.
