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.

Pressure measurement via PLC: AMS 2710 pressure sensor module for direct connect …
For pressure measurement in devices with integrated SPS/PLC or other modular control, traditional encapsulated transmitters are often too expensive and too large. OEM sensors for soldering are inexpensive, but in addition to their own circuit board, they require various electronic components for adjusting the input and output voltage levels and protection against polarity reversal and short-circuiting. Small, inexpensive pressure sensor modules such as the AMS 2710 with 12..36 V
MS5837 - Small absolute pressure sensor with high resolution for 2 or 30 bar
AMSYS GmbH & Co. KG, Mainz, January 2022 – With the air pressure sensor MS5837, AMSYS offers two pressure range variants of a miniaturized pressure sensor for absolute pressure with high resolution. The sensors are calibrated and provide the measured values as I²C digital out-put signal. The reflowable air pressure sensors are designed for pressure ranges of 300–1’200 mbar (MS5837-02BA03) and 0–30 bar (MS5837-30BA) and are protected with a gel coating.
IntraSense – world's smallest in-vivo pressure sensor for catheter
AMSYS GmbH & Co. KG, November 2021 - With the IntraSense, AMSYS presents the smallest in-vivo pressure sensor for integration into catheters with only 1 French diameter. Measuring only 750 μm × 220 μm × 75 μm, the sensor already has a highly flexible, fully protected cable connected for ease of use. The sensor is designed to operate in air and saline fluids such as blood, cerebro-spinal fluid or urine.
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
