Omega Engineering's PX5500 pressure transducer

Feb. 28, 2008
Transducer has a 10 year MTBF


PX5500 pressure transducer has a 10 year MTBF rate and is stable to 0.1% of FSO over an 18 month period. It uses thin film technology. The strain gages and associated structures are sputter-deposited directly onto the pressure sensing element thus eliminating the need for adhesives. The resulting molecular bond between the sensing element and the strain gages ensure virtually no shifting, drifting or creep in the performance of the transducer.
