Digital relative pressure sensor MS5536 by AMSYS

Digital relative pressure sensor MS5536

The MS5536 is an elder model of a high resolution factory calibrated gage pressure module. Please be aware that this product is eol and is not recommended for new designs.

The leaded hybrids are compatible with standard PCB assembly technologies. The devices include a piezoresistive pressure measurement cell and an amplifier-A/D interface-IC. The 3-wire serial interface ensures simple communication with any microcontroller. The devices provide digital pressure and temperature information as 16-Bit data word each. In addition 64 bits of individual calibrated compensation coefficients are stored allowing a highly accurate software compensation of process spread and temperature effects.

The devices can measure bidirectional pressure differences between -1’000- +400 mbar / -400- +1’000 mbar and have a very low standby current and automatic power down mode after each conversion. The optimal compromise about refresh rate and average current consumption can be defined by the application software.
