Sensor benefits


1. Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) Sensors – No P-N Junctions

  • Høy temperaturevne – High temperature capability – Continuous operation at temperatures up to 1000°F (538°C)
  • Insensitive to EMI – Devices with no other, active electronic components will operate in a field of 200 Volts per meter
  • Insensitive to ESD

2. Integrated Sensor of Mono-Crystalline Silicon

  • High reliability – Calculated MTBF of three million (3,000,000) hours for the sensor itself.
  • High Accuracy – The typical static error band – inclusive of non-linearity, hysteresis and repeatability – of a Kulite pressure sensor is less than point one percent of full scale (0.1%FS)
  • No hysteresis

3. Leadless Sensors the Elimination of Gold Leads and Associated Mechanical Joints

  • High tolerance to shock and vibration.
  • High temperature capability

4. Miniaturization

  • Small size and low weight – Sensor sizes from .030 x .030 through .1 x .1 inch allow for ultra-miniature packages.
  • Low sensitivity to the effects of vibration and acceleration – The very low mass of these ultra-miniature sensing elements translates into very high natural frequencies. The low mass also renders them mechanically insensitive to shocks and vibrations until these reach very high levels
  • In addition, Kulite has developed and patented a new sensor which eliminates the effects of extremely high vibration on the output signal of the transducer.
