With pre-amplification and temperature compensation
Servoflo Corp. is pleased to announce a new line of pre-amplified 3V pressure sensors from Fujikura of Japan. Accepting a supply voltage of 3V ±0.15V dc, the X3 Series come in a variety of models including differential, gauge, and absolute pressure versions. With a rated, measurable pressure range of 50 to 1000 kPa, the X3 Series has an accuracy of ±5 percent full-scale from 0 to 50C. The factory-calibrated high-level output provides a 1.5V dynamic range to allow for good resolution and sensitivity. On-chip amplification and temperature compensation make the Fujikura X3 Series easy to use. A variety of package styles are available, including dual in-line, horizontal pressure port DIP, 3- and 6-mm pressure ports, and surface mount designs. Non-corrosive gas is used in all models except for the XFGMC which accepts some, non-corrosive liquids. Applications for the Fujikura X3 Series include altitude compensation, industrial automation, pressure switches, barometers and altimeters, pneumatic and medical devices.
