Superior Sensor Technology (Santa Clara, Calif.) today announced the launch of differential pressure sensors for industrial applications that support up to seven selectable pressure ranges in one device.
Designed for a wide range of applications, the new ND Series sensors support pressure ranges as low as 62.5 Pa/0.25” H2O to as high as 345 mBar/5 psi with an accuracy within 0.05% and Total Error Band (TEB) of less than 0.15% FSS. This capability, coupled with the ND Series’ digital filtering and 50/60Hz notch filter, offers industrial equipment manufacturers a single sensor that could simplify product designs, accelerate time to market and reduce sensor inventory costs, according to Superior Sensor.
The ND Series is designed to measure dry air and non-aggressive gas pressure with accuracy and a stable zero point, according to the company. Applications that may benefit from the ND Series sensors include:
- Manufacturing — 3D printing, automated safety systems, chemical monitoring, leak testing and pneumatic system monitoring.
- Research & development — Device calibration, clean room access, data acquisition and lab equipment.
- Commercial — Hospital room monitoring.
“Similar to what we have achieved with HVAC and medical applications, we are now setting a new performance standard for differential pressure sensors in the industrial product market,” said Superior Sensor Technology CEO Jim Finch in a news release. “Our NimbleSense architecture enables us to deliver sensors with a variety of innovative features and the broadest dynamic range capability in one device from very low to medium pressure ranges, ultimately providing our customers the most cost-effective, highest performing, flexible design options for their next-generation products.”
