Metallux ME511 pressure sensors are made with a ceramic base plate and a flush
diaphragm and work following the piezoresistive principle.
The Wheatstone bridge is screen printed on one side of the flush ceramic diaphragm
which is, in turn, glued to the sensor’s body. The bridge faces the inside where a
cavity is made and the diaphragm’s opposite side can therefore be exposed directly
to the medium to be measured.
Because of the Al2O3 ceramic excellent chemical resistance (aggressive gases, most
of solvents and acids, etc.), no additional protection is normally required.
Metallux ME511 sensors are thermally compensated by laser-adjustable PTC
resistors and the use of ceramic ensures a high linearity across the entire range of
measurement, reducing effects of hysteresis to a minimum.
