The MS5212 is part of the MS52XX series and is an analog OEM absolute pressure sensor that is neither compensated nor amplified. It has the characteristics of the measuring cell and outputs the differential bridge voltage in mV.
The sensor designed for PCB mounting is available for the pressure range 0 – 12 bar. The sensor measures the applied pressure against the vacuum inside the measuring cell = absolute pressure.
The absolute pressure sensor of the MS5212 series is suitable for reflow mounting and consists of a solderable ceramic substrate on which a piezoresistive pressure measuring cell is mounted. The measuring cell is protected by a metal ring or by a cap. The dimensions of the ceramic carrier with metal protective cap or ring are: 7.6 x 7.6 mm2.
It is suitable for applications in which the user wants to use his own amplifier electronics and if necessary can perform the compensation itself or does not make high demands on the accuracy.
