Correct Pressures for Medical Procedures

Welcome to All Sensors “Put the Pressure on Us” blog. This blog brings out pressure sensor aspects in a variety of applications inspired by headlines, consumer and industry requirements, market research, government activities, and you.

Correct Pressures for Medical Procedures

Gas control, medical control systems, air compressors and vacuum pumps are all possible equipment used in a medical or even a veterinary office. In all of these systems, monitoring and controlling the pressure is necessary to achieve the proper, efficient and safe values.

Patton's Medical gas control panel for nitrogenThe Patton’s Medical gas control panel for nitrogen clearly shows the supply (95 psi) and outlet (82 psi) pressures.

While gages are commonly used so medical personnel can easily observe the pressures during a procedure, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) sensors could easily be installed behind the panel and then communicate the data to a local or remote monitoring station. With digital data, warnings can be implemented and archived data can be used to show that proper levels of critical elements, such as oxygen, were maintained during an operation.

New XHB Basic Millivolt Series Pressure Sensor

Welcome to All Sensors “Put the Pressure on Us” blog. This blog brings out pressure sensor aspects in a variety of applications inspired by headlines, consumer and industry requirements, market research, government activities and you. In this blog we’ll discuss our new XHB Series.

New XHB Basic Millivolt Series Pressure Sensor

All Sensors has announced a new line of basic millivolt pressure sensors, ranging from 1 to 70 PSI. The XHB Series Pressure Sensor provides an uncalibrated and uncompensated analog millivolt output signal and is intended to be used with dry air and non-corrosive gases. Miniature DIP housing allows for through-hole PCB-mounting and maximum OEM design flexibility. This series provides an operating temperature range of -40°C to 85°C, and pressure ranges include 1, 5, 15, 30, and 70 PSI.

The XHB Series features:

  • 1 to 70 PSI
  • Miniature DIP packages
  • Maximum OEM design flexibility
  • RoHS compliant

Ideal applications for this device include:

  • Industrial and Pneumatic Controls
  • Instrumentation
  • Medical Devices

New XHM Series Pressure Sensor

Welcome to All Sensors “Put the Pressure on Us” blog. This blog brings out pressure sensor aspects in a variety of applications inspired by headlines, consumer and industry requirements, market research, government activities and you. In this blog we’ll discuss All Sensors’ new XHM Series Pressure Sensors.

NEW XHM Series Pressure Sensor

All Sensors has announced a new XHM Series Pressure Sensor. The XHM Series Pressure Sensors provide a precision calibrated and temperature compensated millivolt output. A DIP package allows for through-hole PCB mounting. The XHM Series is available from 5 inH2O to 30 PSI pressure ranges and is intended for use with dry air and non-corrosive gases. This series provides a calibrated and compensated output over a temperature range of 0°C to 50°C.

The XHM Series embodies innovative features:

  • 5 inH2O to 30 PSI
  • Calibrated and temperature compensated output
  • High impedance for low power
  • Small DIP packages
  • RoHS compliant

Ideal applications for this device include:
