Mt. Olive, NJ — American Sensor Technologies, Inc. (‘AST’) offers a low-cost, high-quality OEM pressure sensor built to address applications with tight space restrictions and requirements for high accuracy, trouble-free operation and long life. Measuring just 0.875” in diameter, the AST4100 Pressure Sensor offers superior performance within the tight confines of refrigeration systems, test stands and data loggers. The stainless steel construction of the header and housing makes it ideal for use in the corrosive environments of gas panels as well as within energy/water management applications (pump and tank monitoring). The pressure sensors also serve the automotive industry as integral components of test equipment and aftermarket pressure regulators.
Each AST4100 pressure sensor employs a thick one-piece diaphragm (free of internal O-rings, welds and fill fluids) that offers a strong hermetic seal against the media. Available in both 17-4PH and 316L stainless steel, units offer superior resistance to media corrosion as well as superb over range and burst protection. Manufactured with the OEM in mind, each unit holds an UL/cUL 508 approval. American Sensor Technologies also utilizes its own-patented Krystal Bond™ Technology that further enhances sensor performance with long-term stability, high output and no zero shifts.
The AST4100 sensors provide gauge and compound gauge pressure measurement in pressure ranges from 0 – 25 to 0 – 10,000 PSI. Units also are available in compound ranges as well as in bar and Kg/cm2 outputs. The competitively priced AST4100 Pressure Sensors are available in outputs of 10mV/V, 0.5-4.5 V ratiometric, 1-5V, 1-6V, .25-5V, or 4-20mA. Units offer accuracy of < + 0.5% BFSL at 25ºC (77º F) and long-term stability of +0.25% full scale output per annum.
