Overview

One of the smallest, gel-filled, watertight sensors on the market.

Optimized for consumer devices such as wearables, multisport watches and fitness trackers the MS5837-02BA’s robust sensor package enables it to withstand harsh environments often encountered in these applications. This MEMS based sensor includes a high-linearity pressure sensor with an ultra-low power 24 bit digital output (I2C) and an altitude resolution at sea level of 13 cm. This enables high resolution measurements such as counting flights of stairs. This ultra-compact micro altimeter allows for design flexibility and is one of the smallest gel filled watertight sensor in the market. The robust sensor package consists of ceramic and metal materials. A high-resolution temperature output allows the implementation of a thermometer ion without any additional sensor. Expanding on TE Connectivity's (TE) MS5837 series of ultra-compact digital altimeters, our new generation 2 bar models offer options for improved endurance in chlorine environments and shielding for reduced signal noise and interference. This new generation of sensor modules was developed by TE with leading MEMS technology and our proven experience in design and manufacturing of altimeter modules.
