Original Press Release:
New Sensor Measures Barometric Pressure
June 30, 2005 - Servoflo Corporation of Lexington, Massachusetts is pleased to announce the Intersema MS5534B Series Pressure Sensor. Featuring a small package of 9 x 9 mm square, the MS5534 offers unparalleled accuracy, high resolution, and a wide temperature range.
The Intersema MS5534B is a SMD-hybrid device with a piezoresistive pressure sensor and an ADC-interface IC. The sensor measures from 0-1100 mbar (0-110kPa), and has a temperature range of -40°C to 125°C. With a low power supply requirement of 2.2V to 3.6V, the pressure sensor also has automatic off/on switching to save on power consumption. The output of the sensor is digital with a 0.1 mbar resolution and a relative pressure accuracy of +/-0.5 mbar. Furthermore, the user can also obtain a temperature output from -40 to 125°C with an accuracy of +/-0.8°C.
6 readable coefficients are included with the sensor for highly accurate software calibration. A 3 wire interface is used for all communication with a microcontroller. Sensor packaging options are plastic or metal cap.
Typical applications include weather control systems, mobile altimeters, gps receivers, and any other application where barometric pressure compensation is required for proper performance.
Sold in the United States and Canada by Servoflo Corporation, the MS5534B is priced at $15 in quantities of 1,000.
