Honeywell Sensing & Control DPR TruStability Board Mount Pressure Sensors

The TruStability™ DPR Series from Honeywell Sensing & Control is a piezoresistive silicon pressure sensor offering a ratiometric analog output for reading pressure over the specified full scale pressure span and temperature range. These sensors are fully calibrated and temperature compensated for sensor offset, sensitivity, temperature effects, and non-linearity using an onboard Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC). Calibrated output values for pressure are updated at approximately 1kHz. The DPR Series is calibrated over the temperature range of -20°C to 70°C [-4°F to 185°F]. The sensor is calibrated for operation from a single power supply of 5.0VDC. These sensors measure differential …
