The ME600 monolithic pressure sensors are made with a ceramic cell and work following the piezoresistive principle. The Wheatstone bridge is screen printed directly on one side of the ceramic diaphragm using Thick Film technology. The diaphragm’s opposite side can be exposed directly to the medium to be measured.
Because of the Al2O3 ceramic excellent chemical resistance (aggressive gases, most solvents and acids, etc.), no additional protection is normally required. Thanks to the reinforced outer area (monolithic structure), the sensor can be mounted directly in a plastic or metallic case by using an O-ring.
ME600 sensors are designed so that temperature changes and pressure overloads do not cause a loss in reliability. The ME600 sensors ensure optimal linearity across the entire measurement range and minimise the effects of hysteresis.
