Diffused Semiconductor Pressure Transducer Rugged Aerospace Design PX6000-5V PX6000-5V
  • High Reliability
  • Long Term Stability
  • All Stainless Steel Case
  • Vacuum Range Available

OMEGA’s PX6000 pressure transducer fits easily into your application. This low-cost transducer is small and light, and mounting requires no bulky structures.You select from 3 electrical terminations and 6 pressure fittings. The sensor is a small [about 2.5 mm (0.1')] square silicon chip with 4 diffused strain gages, mounted in the stainless steel case. Laser-trimmed resistors provide temperature compensation and adjust zero balance and span. The 0 to 5 Vdc output is compatible with most control and data acquisition systems.

The PX6000 Series uses solid state media isolation for improved reliability. Thin films of chemically inert materials are deposited or grown on the chip surface to provide electrical isolation between the sensor and the pressure medium. The sensor is less sensitive to vibration and more dependable in high-shock environments because the films add no significant mass. Corrosion resistance is outstanding, and the isolation will remain effective because there is no gel or oil column to deteriorate.

The PX6000 is also available in metric configurations, with G1/4 or G1/8 ports, and models from 0-1 to 0-25 bar pressure ranges. Please see the PXM6000 for complete details, or contact our Pressure department for more information..
