Part name: Automotive General Purpose Pressure Sensor
Eltek general purpose pressure sensor is suitable for measuring relative or absolute pressure of media present in the most sophisticated vehicle systems. Suitable for PC-LD and MD-HD applications. Chemical resistance to the medium is guaranteed by means of approved materials. The sensitive element is a ceramic element capable of detecting relative or absolute pressure, integrating a signal conditioning IC, which is directly assembled on the sensor. All the active and sensing electonic circuits are not in contact with the medium and they are separated from the medium by a ceramic membrane. The sensor output is ratiometric with the power supply. Calibration procedure, fault conditions management, ESD and EMI requirements are guaranteed by means of an approved IC according to automotive standards.
General characteristics:
  • Temperature compensated (3 points)
  • Pressure compensated (2 points)
