Merit Sensor Systems, Inc. has launched its TR Series of temperature-compensated pressure sensors that features the company's "back-side entry" packaging, delivering performance over temperature in harsh media environments. The proprietary packaging keeps the media isolated from the electronic circuitry of the silicon pressure sensing element. This means the sensing media cannot contact the active, top side of the pressure sensing die. This series features an extended temperature range of -40 to +150 degrees C, making it suitable for applications in the industrial (HVAC, automation, and refrigeration) and automotive (transmission pressure, oil pressure, fuel rail, EGR/Exhaust) sectors. It also can be used in medical and aerospace markets. The pressure sensors are available in three standard packaging options: standard face seal, standard with a gel-filled polycarbonate pressure port, and standard with ferrule and pins as shown in the slideshow.
