Pressure Sensors

A pressure sensor is a device that senses pressure and converts it into an electric signal where the amount depends upon the pressure applied. TE Connectivity (TE) designs and manufactures pressure sensors ranging from the sensing element to system packaging for harsh environments. We are an industry leader for our range of both standard and custom pressure sensors, from board level components to fully amplified and packaged transducers. Based on piezoresistive Micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) and silicon strain gauge (Microfused, Krystal Bond) technology, our sensors measure everything from inches of water column (<5 mbar) to 100K psi (7K bar). Sophisticated design and advanced manufacturing techniques create reliable, cost-effective solutions for medical, HVACR, off-road, heavy equipment, hazardous locations, and general industrial applications. We manufacture one of the world’s lowest power and smallest package pressure sensors for altimeter/NAV applications. Our sensors are signal conditioned, calibrated over temperature and include digital or analog outputs.
