Media resistant ceramic pressure sensor ME790 for relative pressures

Media resistant ceramic pressure sensor ME790 for relative pressures

AMSYS GmbH & Co. KG, Mainz, April 2021 – Ceramic pressure sensors are used in conjunction with liquid or aggressive media respectively high pressures. AMSYS ( offers the ratiometric ME790 with a calibrated, temperature compensated output signal of 0.5 - 4.5 V for pressures from 3 to 400 bar (optionally 600 bar).

Its monolithic design makes the ME790 particularly robust on the one hand, while on the other hand it allows cost-effective large-scale production not only for pharmaceutical and medical technology, but also in the industrial sector and building technology. Filter monitoring and control of the water supply in private households and in large-scale plants is just one application in which this sensor can demon-strate its advantages in terms of hygiene. The ME780 with flush ceramic diaphragm is even easier to clean and less sensitive to deposits.

These sensors with the electronics mounted directly on the ceramic’s backside are also used in phar-maceutical chemistry. They are more robust and avoid interfering noise due to short signal paths. Compared to the older models of the ME750 series, the ME790 is characterized by a lower height due to the obsolete circuit board.

Thanks to its high resistance against most aggressive chemicals, the ME790 is used in medical tech-nology as well as in the chemical and gas/oil industries. It is also suitable for hydraulics, compressor control or level measurement due to its accuracy and wide temperature range.

AMSYS GmbH & Co. KG offers this versatile relative pressure sensor in the common 18 mm diame-ter design with an accuracy of up to 1 %FS and good overpressure characteristics. Corresponding housings with threaded connections are available for rapid prototyping. The electrical connection of the ME790 is made either via solder pads, cables, plugs or spring contacts, with which the sensors are easily interchangeable.

AMS 4516 – the smallest wireless differential pressure sensor
AMSYS GmbH & Co. KG now presents an extremely compact differential pressure transmitter with Bluetooth transmission of measurement data. This sensor is suitable for differential pressure measurement and filter monitoring in situations where wired retrofitting would be difficult. The new pressure transmitter enables measurement data to be read out by a number of different devices – also in places that are difficult to access or where mobile data retrieval is
Wireless pressure sensor
AMSYS presents the barometric wireless pressure sensors of the AMS 4506 series in a small, compact and robust plastic housing (35 x 25 x 13.5 mm³). The wireless pressure sensor AMS 4506 from AMSYS is suitable for barometric pressure measurement and vacuum monitoring. The particular advantage of this wireless sensor is that it can be used in places that are difficult to access, such as wind turbines, in applications that
Bidirectional low pressure sensor 125 Pascal in SOIC-housing - SM9333
AMSYS presents a small pressure/temperature sensor with impressive performance characteristics in the low-pressure range of 125 Pa. Outstanding about this sensor is the very small pressure range and the excellent accuracy. AMSYS ( introduces the pressure sensor SM9333 - a bidirectional differen-tial version with ± 125 Pa pressure range. The peculiarity of differential sensors is the fact that they can measure both negative as well as positive pressure. Due to the
Miniaturized Pressure Transmitters in Plastic Housing - AMS 4710
AMSYS GmbH & Co. KG, January 2019. Most people think of pressure transmitters (ready-to-use pressure sensors) as bulky steel-housed sensors. AMSYS shows new ways with its analog pressure transmitters in LEGO-size. These miniaturized transmitters combine excellent performance features with all types of pressure and can be used in several fields of application.
