pressure transducer | electrical connector

Your pressure transducer can be used in a variety of applications, many of which are exposed to the elements. Rain, snow, wind and sunlight can all have an impact on your pressure instrument if you don’t have the right equipment for the job. Using the correct electrical connector for your pressure transducer can ensure that your equipment keeps running even when impacted by the environment. But how do you choose the best electrical connector for your application? This article will discuss the factors to consider when selecting an electrical connector for a transducer that can stand up to the environmental impacts of your application.

pressure transducer | semiconductor industry

Pressure transducers used in the semiconductor industry need to be designed and manufactured with materials that can prevent contamination in your process, and also handle corrosive liquids or gases in certain applications such as cleaning equipment and wet stations. Ashcroft has recently released the ZL95 fluoropolymer pressure transducer with a 4-digit LED display, specially made for corrosive environments. The PTFE/PFA wetted parts provide extended cycle life and corrosion resistance. This review will look at the features of this pressure transducer and how it can provide reliable pressure measurements for your semiconductor application.

pressure transducers | accuracy

Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are a critical part of a building’s operation. They ensure that an indoor environment is comfortable for occupants by controlling humidity, temperature and air quality. However, the cost of running these systems can be a concern for building owners as inefficiencies in an HVAC system could increase building management costs, especially if the pressure sensors used to monitor and control the system are not accurate.

pressure transducer | pressure transducers | semiconductor

If you work in the semiconductor industry, you know that there are applications that require specialized equipment to handle corrosive liquids or gases, such as cleaning and wet etching. These processes use corrosive chemicals and ultra-high purity water. Chip manufacturers need to control these liquids accurately. The pressure transducer used must be anti-corrosive, low metal ion elusion and, of course, accurate. When your semiconductor process requires pressure measurement, you need the best instruments for the job.
