Aerospace pressure transmitters

  • 15-Jun-2010 02:33 EDT

American Sensor Technologies offers pressure transducers and transmitters for military and aerospace applications. The AST2000 and AST20HA pressure transmitters feature Krystal Bond Technology, comprised of a one-piece stainless steel sensing element, free of welds, oil-filled cavities, and internal O-rings. Operating from -55 to +75°C, the one-piece sensing element will not have O-ring failure inside the sensor or frozen/boiling fluid-filled cavities, which the company says is typical of competing designs at severe temperatures. The units are also digitally compensated, providing high accuracy across the operating temperature range. They can handle shock, vibration, and washdown to military standards such as MIL-810 and MIL-461. Both products can be manufactured with connectors, including the Bendix four- and six-pin versions.
