MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) technology is used for over 90% of the pressure sensors sold today. Usually, low-cost plastic packaging is used for these sensors. To survive harsher environments more rugged stainless steel packaging and a highly durable connector are required. Setra Systems, Inc. took all of these technology aspects into account with the design of its Model 3550 pressure sensor.
With its 316L stainless steel in contact with the measured substance, the 3550 sensors are suitable for water and aggressive chemical applications. The sensors are available in absolute, compound, and gauge pressure ranges from 0-15 psi (1 Bar) through 0-250 psi (16 Bar).
