It’s amazing how much information a sensor’s package conveys regarding its application. American Sensor Technologies, Inc. (AST) AST5400 screams industrial, high pressure. In fact, the wet / wet differential pressure sensor can measure line pressures up to 2,000 PSI. With microelectromechanical system (MEMS) technology as the sensing mechanism, the package uses Krystal Bond Technology to avoid silicone oil, O-rings or welds.
To measure differential pressure across a filter, monitor level in a sealed or vented tank, or calculate flow across an orifice plate, the sensor has turndown ratio of 15 to 1 and can be used in place of two gauge pressure sensors.
