Available in pressure ratings up to 60,000 PSIG (4,000 Bar), the AST47HP Series of pressure sensors addresses the growing need for pressure sensors with higher pressure ratings. The pressure sensors are suitable for operation in diesel fuel rails, high-pressure wells, hydraulics, injection-molding equipment, water jets, down-hole instrumentation and more. They incorporate a one-piece, stainless-steel sensing element that is free of silicone oil, welds or O-rings, eliminating contamination. With the company’s Krystal bond technology, the sensing element offers a thick diaphragm that eliminates long-term drift. The stainless-steel housing is welded to the sensing element for optimum protection of the sensor's electronics. Units are rated for over 100 million pressure cycles and have 100V/m of EMI/RFI to protect against electrical noise.
