Super Stable, Ultra-Low Pressure Sensor for HVAC Automation

LP Series Ultra-Low Pressure Sensor

An ultra-low pressure sensor capable of meeting pressure monitoring requirements within a range as low as 4 inches H2O (10 millibar, 1 kPa)

Merit Sensor Systems, Inc., announces the launch of its new line of super stable, ultra-low pressure sensor products capable of meeting pressure monitoring requirements within a range as low as 4 inches H2O (10 millibar, 1 kPa). The new ultra-low pressure sensors will be on display at AHR 2015 in Chicago, Illinois, January 26th - 28th 2015 (booth 3552).

The new LP Series pressure sensor assembly is a surface mountable (SMT), eight-pin design available in both uncompensated and compensated output configurations. The compensated LP Series versions include both high-accuracy analog and digital ratiometric signal output options with each compensated option providing full compensation for offset, temperature and span variability.

Merit Sensor’s L Series piezoresistive MEMS pressure sensing element is the heart of the LP Series package. The L Series is a proprietary Merit Sensor MEMS sensing element design specifically engineered to offer superior burst pressure and stability performance characteristics. The L Series MEMS die output is specified at a highly sensitive 50,000uV/V/PSI for a 0 to 4 inches H2O operating range.

“We are excited to add the LP Series family of ultra-low pressure sensor packages to our pressure sensor portfolio,” stated Merit Sensor President, Rick Russell. “Last year we introduced the TR Series sensor solution to address a market need for harsh media pressure monitoring, and today we are adding ultra-low pressure sensing capability to our portfolio. Merit Sensor has a great tradition of providing pressure sensor products with superior stability and drift performance and the LP Series continues this focus. We expect this product will give application and system engineers new levels of accuracy and pressure monitoring performance.”

The LP Series will meet application needs in both the industrial and medical markets including smart HVAC vent control, room pressure differential and respiratory-related pressure monitoring applications. The design is available in pressure ranges from 4 to 28 in H2O (10-69 mbar, 0.15-1psi) and for temperature ranges from -40 to +85°C. The package is designed to offer maximum flexibility for system integration including options for pressure port configurations, pin-out options, output and pressure range options, and electrical schematic configuration.
