Honeywell's new Basic Compensated Unamplified Board Mount Pressure Sensors Provide High Durability, Sensitivity and Flexibility

Allows OEMS to Manage Amplification to Maximize Resolution --- Widest Pressure Range Enables OEMs to Maximize Sensitivity --- Small Size and Package Options Simplify Installation --- Low Current Consumption Allows for use in Battery-powered Applications --- Global Supply Chain Expertise Provides Fast Delivery

MINNEAPOLIS - April 16, 2014 - Honeywell (NYSE:HON) today announced its new Basic Board Mount Pressure Sensors, Compensated, Unamplified, TBP Series. These new sensors are designed for customers who require a simple, high quality, cost-effective, basic performance, mV output sensor that is compensated and unamplified so they can do their own amplification while retaining maximum resolution.


"The new TBP Series are designed to be flexible to meet the varying needs of our customers," said Jacqueline Leff, senior product marketing manager. "Their small size and numerous package options simplify placement on crowded PC boards, a wide pressure range allows for use in applications requiring higher pressures, and their low current consumption allows for use in battery applications. Additionally, customers can count on a fast response for quotes and samples, and a supply chain that is available throughout their development cycle."

The TBP Series, used to measure gauge pressures, may potentially be used in medical applications including hospital beds, oxygen concentrators, wound therapy and blood pressure monitoring, and industrial applications such as HVAC transmitters, air movement control, environmental control, leak detection, pneumatic controls and other commercial applications.

Gauge pressure sensors are referenced to atmospheric pressure and provide an output proportional to pressure variations from atmosphere. They are intended for use with non-corrosive, non-ionic gases, such as air and other dry gases, and for non-corrosive, non-ionic liquids when the silicone gel coating option is selected. The TBP Series are designed and manufactured according to ISO 9001 and are ROHS compliant.

The TBP Series Basic Board Mount Pressure Sensors offer a wide pressure range (1 psi to 150 psi, 60 mbar to 10 bar, 6 kPa to 1 MPa) and an operating temperature range from -40 °C to 125 °C (-40 °F to 257 °F) and a 0 °C to 85 °C compensated temperature range. Their size of 7 mm x 7 mm (0.276 in x 0.276 in) is very small when compared to most board mount pressure sensors, simplifying installation. The TBP Series have an unlimited shelf life after the packaging is opened, can be calibrated within one hour after reflow solder, and are compatible with modern lead-free, no-clean solder processes.
