High-temperature pressure sensor

The Endevco model 8523 high-temperature pressure sensor from Meggitt Sensing Systems (Irvine, CA) uses silicon strain gages to enable gage and differential measurements. Designed for static or dynamic pressures, sensor applications include inlet distortion pressures in turbine engines, transmission pressures in automobiles and rocket motor analysis. Key features include: 15, 50, 100, 200 and 500 psig ranges; 300 mV full scale output for higher signal-to-noise ratio; high temperature, up to +500°F (+260°C) continuous use; accuracy with 1% linearity at two times full-scale range; and high resonance frequency for dynamic response.
