The pressure sensors in the AMS 5915 series are high-precision OEM sensors with a digital I2C-output for pressure and temperature data. With its I2C output and 3.3 V supply voltage they are especially suitable for microcontroller applications. They are extensively calibrated and temperature compensated and can be used for pressure measurements in non-corrosive liquids and gases.
AMS 5915 comes in a ceramic dual in-line package for assembly on printed circuit boards (PCBs). Pressure is connected via vertical metal tubes as pressure ports for hose connection or using O-rings on a suitable flange.
The sensors in the AMS 5915 series are available for various applications and pressure ranges: differential (relative) devices in pressure ranges from 0 … 5 mbar up to 0 … 1 bar, absolute pressure variants for 0 … 500 mbar up to 0 … 2 bar and a barometric type. Bidirectional differential devices are available in pressure ranges from -2.5 … 2.5 mbar up to -1 … 1 bar. Custom specific pressure ranges or modifications are available on request. Medical Applications:
- Respirators (CPAP)
- Pressure- and flow control in anesthesia
- Alternating pressure systems in hospital beds
- Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
- IPK-systems for compression therapy
- Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT)
