Compact pressure sensor module

March 2019 Pressure Measurement & Control

With the extremely compact MPR-1 piezo sensor module, WIKA has expanded its portfolio of integrative pressure measurement devices for OEM applications with standardised output signals.

With a diameter of just 19 mm and height starting from 17 mm (depending on the process connection), the sensor module can be integrated into a wide variety of products and applications. The custom-fit specification is supported by the selection of analog and digital output signals. The version with digital I²C signal features very low power consumption and a fast response time (3 ms). It is therefore ideal for applications requiring battery operation. In addition, a temperature value can be output via the I²C signal.

The model MPR-1 is available as standard, with gauge and absolute pressure measuring ranges (from 0-0,4 bar to 0-25 bar) as well as vacuum measuring ranges. It measures with an accuracy of 0,5% of the span. On request, a higher accuracy and other pressure ranges can be supplied.
