Honeywell is pleased to introduce its TruStability™ Board Mount Pressure Sensors, RSC Series, a high-end, high-value addition to its TruStability™ portfolio. The RSC Series is designed for applications that require higher performance than existing TruStability™ products. When compared to Honeywell's existing TruStability™ sensors, the RSC Series provides greater than 18 bits of real resolution and a Total Error Band that is four times tighter while utilizing the same small, stable package. The Series is a more cost-effective than premium laboratory grade devices.

The RSC Series integrates proven sense element technology and stable packaging used in the TruStability™ platform with Honeywell's innovative 24-bit analog to digital converter. Rather than having one-size-fits-all internal math, compensation co-efficients are stored in internal EEPROM, which provides flexibility because customers can customize compensation for specific applications.

VALUE TO CUSTOMERS
* Enhances performance: Output accelerates performance through reduced conversion requirements and direct interface to microprocessors
* Enhances reliability: High burst pressures promote system reliability, minimize downtime, and can simplify design
* Easy to design in: Package is small when compared to many similar sensors, occupying less area on the PCB
* Low power: Reduces system power requirements and enables extended battery life

FEATURES AND BENEFITS
* Pressure range: ±1.6 mbar to ±10 bar | ±160 Pa to ±1 MPa | ±0.5 inH2O to ±150 psi; absolute 1 bar to 8 bar | 15 psi to 150 psi
* Pressure types:
- Absolute: internal vacuum reference and output value proportional to absolute pressure
- Gage: referenced to atmospheric pressure and provides output proportional to pressure variations from atmosphere
- Differential: allows measurement of pressure between two pressure ports
* Total Error Band: As low as 0.25%FSS
* Accuracy: ±0.1 %FSS BFSL (Full Scale Span Best Fit Straight Line)
* Compensated temperature range: 0 °C to 50 °C [32 °F to 122 °F], -20 °C to 85 °C [-4 to 185 °F], -40 to 85 °C [-40 °F to 185 °F]
* Burst and working pressures
* 3.0 Vdc to 5 Vdc supply voltage
* Power consumption of less than 10 mW, typ.
