Metallux ME600 monolithic pressuer sensors are made with a ceramic cell and work following the piezoresistive principle. The Wheatstone bridge is screen printed directly on one side of the ceramic diaphragm by means of Thick Film technology. The diaphragm’s opposite side can be exposed directly to the medium to be measured. Because of the Al2O3 ceramic excellent chemical resistance (aggressive gases, most of solvents and acids, etc.), no additional protection is normally required. Thanks to the reinforced outer area (monolithic structure), the sensor can be mounted directly in a plastic or metallic case by using O-ring. ME600 sensors are designed in such a way so that temperature changes and pressure overloads do not cause loss in reliability. Metallux ME600 sensors ensure optimal linearity across the entire range of measurement and minimize effects of hysteresis. Metallux ME600 family substitutes ME662, ME663, ME651 and ME667 families in the high pressure range
