Miniature Pressure Sensor Available with USB Output
Release Date: 4/27/09

FUTEK Advanced Sensor Technology, Inc. (FUTEK) has just added the PMP941 Miniature Pressure Sensor to their USB Sensor Solution Line. The new module with USB output eliminates the need for an analog amplifier, power supply, and display equipment making usage that much easier. The plug and play gives you power to monitor the output of the sensor and enjoy measurement that is less affected by noise, temperature variation or power supply requirement. The USB integration also includes FUTEK’s USB Software which allows users to monitor the output of the Sensor in real time.

The PMP941 Pressure Sensor is an Ultra Miniature Pressure Sensor made of all titanium construction. This Pressure Sensor is made for harsh environments capable of sustaining the most corrosive and industrial applications. The PMP941 is made of a miniature and ultra light design weighing < 10g. This small sized transducer provides high performance with an output of 5V DC from a 5V DC +/- 10Mv supply. Input pressure range is 73 PSI up to 5800 PSI, withstanding vibrations of up to 50g at up to 20-2000Hz.

The PMP series Subminiature Pressure Transducers are manufactured from one piece of all titanium construction in a miniature design, allowing for a thin diaphragm and heavy side walls. This design produces a very sensitive but rugged transducer able to cover the entire pressure range of up to 5,800 PSI. The PMP transducers are ideal in corrosive fluid environments and are recommended for applications involving rough handling or where a completely hermetically sealed transducer is required. Innovative transducers designed to meet the needs of most pressure monitoring applications. In addition we can provide custom designed devices for specialized applications. This model features an all welded rugged design to provide a high degree of compatibility with a very lightweight construction.

FUTEK’s compact (<3 inches in length) PMP941 provides a new, economical, and durable option for system designers seeking a highly accurate yet small footprint pressure sensor for dry media medical applications such as respirators, oxygen concentrators, and CPAP equipment. The Sensors can also be utilized in a variety of industrial applications as well where sensor size and mounting options are a concern. Additionally, FUTEK can custom design sensors for those with unique configuration needs.

The PMP941 ultra miniature sensor in size provides reliable and accurate pressure measurement in cardiovascular and other critical medical applications where miniaturization is key to a product utility. Small size provides for less invasive catheterization practices, which enables new practices that were not possible with the conventional blood pressure measurement systems.
