Fort Mill, S.C., Oct. 3, 2016 – Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today released a new series of board mount pressure sensors designed to measure low airflow with high accuracy that is ideal for use in medical devices; heating, air conditioning and ventilation (HVAC) systems; and drones.
The new TruStabilityTM Board Mount Pressure Sensors, RSC Series, offer enhanced reliability to minimize system downtime and provide high accuracy to reduce the reliance on software to correct system inaccuracies. This minimizes design time, improves efficiency and often simplifies development.
With a small footprint that occupies less area on a printed circuit board, the sensors reduce overall system size to allow easier fit and potentially reduce production costs.
The RSC Series’ extremely high measurement accuracy and design flexibility make the new pressure sensor ideal for a variety of applications and uses, including measuring:
The TruStability Board Mount Pressure Sensors, RSC Series, are piezoresistive silicon pressure sensors that include features such as:
Robert Robinson, senior product marketing manager, Honeywell Safety and Productivity Solutions: “These new pressure sensors have a real-life impact. Their accuracy and reliability could help make buildings more energy-efficient by accurately measuring airflow across all HVAC systems. They can also enable healthcare providers to improve patient care and safety with more accurate readings of airflow in ventilators, including accurate calculations of lung volume to determine how much air to supply to the patient.”
