Our products

Product category: Pressure sensors

ME501 - Piezoresistive Flush Membrane

Metallux ME501/ME505 pressure sensors are made with a ceramic base cell and a flush diaphragm and work following the piezoresistive principle. The Wheatstone bridge is screen printed on one side of the flush ceramic diaphragm which is, in turn, glued to the sensor’s body. The bridge faces the inside where a cavity is made and the diaphragm’s opposite side can therefore be exposed directly to the medium to be measured. Because of the Al2O3 ceramic excellent chemical resistance (aggressive gases, most of solvents and acids, etc.), no additional protection is normally required. Metallux ME501/ME505 sensors are thermally compensated by laser adjustable PTC resistors and the use of ceramic ensures a high linearity across the entire range of measurement, reducing effects of hysteresis to a minimum.

ME662 - Piezoresistive Monolithic

Metallux ME662 monolithic pressure sensors are made with a ceramic cell and work following the piezoresistive principle. The Wheatstone bridge is screen printed directly on one side of the ceramic diaphragm by means of Thick Film technology. The diaphragm’s opposite side can be exposed directly to the medium to be measured. Because of the Al2O3 ceramic excellent chemical resistance (aggressive gases, most of solvents and acids, etc.), no additional protection is normally required. Thanks to the reinforced outer area (monolithic structure), the sensor can be mounted directly in a plastic or metallic case by using O-ring. ME662 sensors are designed in such a way so that temperature changes and pressure overloads do not cause loss in reliability. Use of ceramic ensures high linearity across the entire range of measurement and minimizes effects of hysteresis.

ME657 - Piezoresistive Monolithic

Metallux ME657 monolithic pressure sensors are made with a ceramic cell and work following the piezoresistive principle. Metallux ME657 sensors are thermally compensated by laser adjustable PTC resistors and offset can be adjusted following customers’ specification. The Wheatstone bridge is screen printed directly on one side of the ceramic diaphragm by means of Thick Film technology. The diaphragm opposite side can be exposed directly to the medium to be measured.

ME657 sensors are designed in such a way so that temperature changes and pressure overloads do not cause loss in reliability. Use of ceramic ensures high linearity across the entire range of measurement and minimizes effects of hysteresis. Metallux ME657 pressure sensor main feature is the reduced diameter (12.85 mm).

ME750 - Piezoresistive Monolithic with signal conditioning

Metallux ME75x and MEP75x are monolithic pressure sensors made with ceramic cell and work following the piezoresistive principle. The Wheatstone bridge is screen printed directly on one side of the ceramic diaphragm by means of Thick Film technology and signal conditioning electronics are added to generate 0.5…4.5 V ratiometric output (ME750), current loop 4…20 mA (ME751) or 0…10 V non ratiometric output (ME752). Also available in customized version I2C output. Pressure and temperature calibration are done electronically with the on-board ASIC and can be performed in bar (ME75x) or in psi (MEP75x). Electronics provide offset and span correction when temperature changes. Aging detection and compensation are constantly performed. This new method guarantees good precision and long-term stability. The Metallux ME75x family meets EMI requirements. The ASIC stores production lot specific data for sensor traceability and allows custom calibration. Due to the excellent chemical immunity of the the Al2O3 ceramic, the ME75x sensors are suitable for nearly all aggressive media.

ME780 - Piezoresistive Flush Membrane with signal conditioning

Metallux ME78x and MEP78x pressure sensors are made with a ceramic base cell and a flush diaphragm and work following the piezoresistive principle. The Wheatstone bridge is screen printed on one side of the flush ceramic diaphragm which, is in turn, glued to the sensor’s body. The bridge faces the inside where a cavity is made. Signal conditioning electronics are directly integrated on the ceramic to generate 0.5…4.5 V ratiometric output (ME780) or I2C digital output code (ME782). Pressure and temperature calibration are done electronically with the onboard ASIC and can be performed in bar (ME78x) or in psi (MEP78x). Electronics provides offset and span correction when the temperature changes. Aging detection and compensation are constantly performed. This new method guarantees good precision and long-term stability. The Metallux ME78x family meets EMI requirements.
