XP5 Miniature Pressure Sensor

Miniature threaded pressure sensor for measurement in static, dynamic or harsh environments

About the XP5 Miniature Pressure Sensor

The XP5 miniature pressure sensor features the cutting edge SanShift™ technology which eliminates zero shifts caused by installation torque. This rugged sensor is constructed of titanium to enable reliable operation including harsh environments. The XP5’s core sensing technology consists of a temperature compensated Wheatstone bridge composed of high stability micro-machined silicon strain gauges.

Available in gauge, absolute and sealed configurations, the XP5 is offered in ranges from 1 to 350 bar [15 to 5,000 psi]. An on-board amplifier is optionally available (A1) for ranges from 5 to 350 bar [75 to 5,000 psi].

A PT1000 temperature probe is optionally available for all ranges as a custom design.
