The 86A is a small profile, media compatible, piezoresistive silicon pressure sensor packaged in a 316L stainless steel housing and is designed for o-ring mounting. The sensing package utilizes silicone oil to transfer pressure from the 316L stainless steel diaphragm to the sensing element. The 86A is designed for high performance, low pressure applications. A custom ASIC is used for temperature compensation, offset correction, and provides an amplified output of 0.5 to 4.5V.
The 86A is designed for applications such as: level controls, tank level measurement, OEM equipment, corrosive fluids and gas measurement systems, sealed systems, manifold pressure measurement, barometric pressure measurement and submersible depth monitoring. Its gage type reference has a pressure range of 0-1 to 0-150psi while its absolute type reference ranges from 0-15 to 0-150psi.
