Under Pressure

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.

Under Pressure

“Pressure, pushing down on me, pressing down on you.” Queen & David Bowie

Great song and, perhaps, a fitting summary for 2020. Adios, 2020! However, pressure, or more appropriately, the stress due to many traumatic moments of daily life, gets a bad rap, since we actually rely on pressure for a variety of life-enabling, life-sustaining and life-enhancing functions. Several of these have been addressed in previous “Put the Pressure on US” blogs. See: “The Pressures of Daily Life on Earth” and “The Pressures of a Modern Lifestyle” for more examples of pressures experienced every day.

To deal with the very real pressures of daily living, you need a wide variety of pressure sensors to measure, monitor and control air and a variety of gases, water and a variety of other liquids as well as numerous human body pressures. From low (<5 cmH2O) to high (<500 psi and even <6000 psi) pressures in  well-controlled to hostile environments, All Sensors offers 52 series of pressure sensors with a variety of outputs including basic, millivolt and amplified analog as well as digital to address these real pressures, including breathing.

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:

  • Medical devices
  • Instrumentation
  • HVAC/Environmental controls


Datasheet download here. Samples are available for product testing.
