The M3200 pressure transducer from the Microfused line of TE Connectivity is suitable for the measurement of liquid or gas pressure, even for difficult media such as contaminated water, steam, and mildly corrosive fluids. The transducer pressure cavity is machined from a solid piece of 17-4 PH stainless steel. The standard version includes a 1/4 NPT pipe thread allowing a leak-proof, all-metal sealed system. With excellent durability, there are no O-rings, welds, or organics exposed to the pressure media. TE’s proprietary Microfused technology, derived from demanding aerospace applications, employs micromachined silicon piezoresistive strain gages fused with high-temperature glass to a stainless-steel diaphragm. This approach achieves media compatibility simply and elegantly while providing an exceptionally stable sensor without the PN junctions of conventional micromachined sensors. This product is geared towards industrial and commercial OEMs for small to high volume applications. Standard configurations are suitable for many applications.
