The piezo-resistive pressure transducers Series M5 are ideal, thanks to the M5 fine thread, for taking measurements at close proximity in places where access is a problem and in very thin pipes exactly the kinds of conditions associated with engine test benches. The front-flush design prevents gas bubbles interfering with fluid measurements and supports measurements up to 200 °C without a cooling adapter. The extreme dynamic range of 0-50 kHz makes it possible to record very fast pulsations just as reliably as those associated with static pressure values. A vibration-resistant Teflon FEP cable (IP67) ensures the 80 mV output signal is routed securely out of the hot environment and then onwards for processing.
The Series M5 sensor incorporates a stable silicon sensor which is backside-soldered directly to a supporting element designed for excellent fluid dynamics. This construction eliminates the disadvantages of sealants, adhesives, separating membranes or capillary tubes in high temperature environments.
