Improved Metallux ME501 Ceramic Pressure Sensor


Servoflo Corporation of Lexington, Massachusetts is pleased to announce an improved ME501 piezoresistive ceramic pressure sensor from Metallux. The ME501 comes in a variety of pressure ranges from the new 0-0.5 bar up to 0-600 bar. Manufacturing process improvements have led to increased stability, consistency and reliability. With an operating temperature range of -40°C to 135°C, the Metallux ME501 offers wide temperature compensation directly mounted on the sensor, excellent protection from corrosion, impact and vibration resistance, and easy mounting options. These sensors are designed for rugged environments such as tank measurement and contact with a variety of gas and liquid media. Accepting 2-30 VDC, the measuring bridge is printed directly on one side of the ceramic diaphragm by means of thick film technology. The rear part of the diaphragm can be exposed directly to the medium with no additional protection. The ceramic material creates a stable sensor providing a linear mV output with little hysteresis. The Metallux ME501’s stability makes it impervious to mounting direction, allowing OEM’s to create specific custom sensor housing based on the application.
