Pressure Sensor

Micro Amplified

The miniature amplified pressure sensor has been developed and manufactured exclusively for McLaren Electronics by GE Sensing.

The output voltage of this sensor changes with absolute pressure. An internal amplifier creates a single-ended, amplified output in the 0 to 5 Volt range, so the sensor can be connected directly to most control units. The body and diaphragm are impervious to chemical attack by standard motorsport fluids.

The Pressure connection is also available as M8x1.

Please request our installation datasheet for further details.

Application

  • Absolute pressure measurement of all media.

Electrical

  • Supply voltage 8 to 16V unregulated
  • Supply current 5mA max
  • Maximum output voltage 4.95V
  • Span 4.5V ±0.05V @ 25°C
  • Extrapolated zero offset ≤0.2±0.05V @ 25°C
  • Thermal shifts:
    • Sensitivity ≤±2.5%FSO @ 25°C1
    • Zero offset ≤±2.5%FSO @ 25°C1
    • Combined non-linearity, repeatability & hysteresis ≤±0.25% FSO @ 25°C BSL
  • Insulation resistance >100MΩ @ 50Vdc
  • Gain and offset values are measured at 25°C and will be supplied with the sensor

The sensor is protected against reverse bias or short circuit between output and ground but it may be damaged if the output is connected to the supply.
