Design and function

The sensor is specially designed to measure absolute pressure in gasoline direct injection applications. This sensor is also compatible with other kind of fluids e.g. Diesel, engine oil, transmission oil or brake fluid. The sensor uses a thin layer technique to achieve high accuracy pressure measurements. The stainless steel measuring cells with piezoresistive bridges are hermetically welded with stainless steel pressure ports. The internal reference ensures ambient pressure independent measurements. 

The main benefits of this sensor are its high accuracy, its wide measurement range and its robust and compact design.
