High-end technology for efficient pressure measurement
Pressure measurement is an essential part of any process monitoring system. Based on market reports, variety of applications are expanding day by day. Due to special requirements and technical limitations in any industrial application, wide range of technologies offered and different techniques executed to provide a reliable, accurate and durable solution. Piezoresistive pressure measurement systems are one of the most common sensors for pressure measurement for a wide range of applications.
With growing need for development of equipment in the testing environment, MeasureX stands with its collar high, to claim to be a reliable source offering high-quality pressure measuring equipment across the globe. MeasureX piezo resistive pressure sensors are designed to serve in harsh environments and provide high accuracy measurement. Piezo-resistive pressure sensors are flexible enough to be used for absolute pressure measurement, vented gauge or sealed gauge pressure measurement.
What is Piezoresistive pressure sensor?
MeasureX Piezoresistive pressure sensors are developed based on MEMS technology. MEMS (Micro-electromechanical systems) is a process technology used to create tiny integrated devices or systems that combine mechanical and electrical components. MEMS sensors are one of the main categories of Micro-electromechanical systems developed to make them suitable for many new areas of application with high performance and significantly low price. MEMS Piezoresistive pressure elements fabricated using integrated circuit (IC) batch processing techniques can be made just a few millimeters in size.
There are different methods to manufacture silicon dies and producing the complete pressure transducer or transmitter to provide better performance. These techniques are improving day by day to meet new emerging applications. MeasureX implement state of the art technologies to keep the highest quality of the piezoresistive pressure sensors in the market.
What is Piezoresistive effect?
Lord Kelvin was the first person, discovered the change of electrical resistance in metal devices due to an applied mechanical load. This is the fundamental rule, describes how most of pressure sensors work. Most of direct method electric pressure measurement systems measure change of the resistance in proportion to applied pressure / strain on sensing element of the sensor.
In 1954, when single crystal silicon become the material of choice for the design of analog and digital circuits, the large piezoresistive effect in silicon and germanium was first discovered.
In semi-conducting materials, changes in inter-atomic spacing resulting from strain affect the bandgaps, making it easier (or harder depending on the material and strain) for electrons to be raised into the conduction band. This results the change in resistivity of the material due to strain. Within a certain range of strain this relationship is linear. Piezoresistive pressure sensors are measuring the change of resistance to measure the strain caused by applied pressure.
Where to use Piezoresistive pressure sensors?
Piezoresistive pressure sensors are suitable for a wide range of pressure measurement applications from less than 1bar to about 600bar. For very low range of pressure, capacitive or inductive pressure sensors would provide better performance and for the range higher than 600bar, strain gauge-based pressure sensors are better. We do have a choice of pressure transducers available to cater for all these very low to very high ranges also.
We are also known for quick delivery of pressure sensors worldwide as we always have a wide range of pressure sensors in stock, to meet urgent demands.
