Solid State Isolated Transducer in Transistor Case
Product Announcement from Omegadyne, Inc.
The small size and light weight of the PX4600 series make them ideal for tough vibration and shock environments. The sensor is a small silicon chip with four diffused silicon strain gages. Laser trimmed resistors provide excellent temperature compensation from -65 to 250° F, and adjust zero balance and span to tight tolerances. The unusual high performance of this transducer comes from the 4-activearm- bridge sensor using a micromachined diffused silicon diaphragm and proprietary thin film media and dielectric isolation barriers.
