Micron Instruments & Micron Meters has been supplying high-quality semiconductor strain gages, pressure transducers and temperature sensors for more than a quarter century.

Micron Instruments & Micron Meters’ standard semiconductor strain gages are made from "P" doped bulk silicon; they have no P/N junction. The silicon is etched to shape eliminating potential molecular dislocation or cracks thereby optimizing performance. These strain gages have been used in the manufacture of many different types of sensors such as load cells, torque meters, pressure transducers, accelerometers and precision extensometers.

Professional installation of strain gages on customer products along with the option of temperature compensation and calibration is available. Micron Instruments & Micron Meters’ staff of experienced engineers can also design custom sensors and special strain gages to meet your unique needs. Typical custom designs have been in the fields of robotics, medicine, process control, aircraft and liquid level measurement.

Micron Instruments & Micron Meters' standard line of pressure transducers has corrosive resistant Titanium diaphragms and is available in a wide assortment of pressure ranges. Typical applications are for OEM, process control and liquid level measurement

Professional Semiconductor Strain Gage Installation ServiceIn addition to their standard line of Titanium transducers, Micron Instruments & Micron Meters has experience in providing sensors made of 17-4PH CRES, 316SS, Inconel, Tantalum, Aluminum, Beryllium Copper, Invar Plastics and others.

Dual pressure/temperature transducers, pressure transmitters with 4-20 mA outputs and dual pressure/temperature transmitters are available in all of the physical configurations of Micron Instruments & Micron Meters' standard pressure transducers. The dual sensors incorporate silicon temperature sensors manufactured by Micron Instruments & Micron Meters, which are more accurate and easier to use than thermistors. These temperature sensors can produce a 100 mV change with 5 VDC excitation between 30°F and 130°F.

Innovation at Micron Instruments & Micron Meters
Recently developed is Micron Instruments & Micron Meters’ Smart Electronics which provide a 0-5v, 0-10v, or 4-20mA. signal from an unregulated source. It provides a field recalibration option (16 to 35 VDC) and other interesting advantages.

Team Players
