Do you need to measure the pressure of gas, oil, refrigerant, or other harsh media? If these materials penetrate the sensor’s packaging, they can lead to reliability issues, costly maintenance, and even recalls. Our solution? The TR Series. Its hermetically sealed die measures pressure from the backside, where media contacts nothing more than the ceramic substrate, glass, and gold-tin eutectic solder. With the TR Series you can count on accurate and reliable pressure measurement.
What do you mean by “media” and what is “harsh media”?
Media is the environment to which the sensor is exposed. Generally, this can be liquid, gas or air. Harsh media would be anything that could damage the sensor and electronics such as gasoline, oil, exhaust, water, etc…
What is the “backside” of the die?
The backside is the cavity side of the die.
Can I evaluate your pressure sensor products?
Yes, in fact Merit sells a TR evaluation kit (MeriTREK) that allows the end user to evaluate the TR –Series fully compensated pressure sensor. The MeriTREK ships with a standard 100psi TR part but will work with any pressure range of the TR Series. In addition Merit offers samples of other parts and bare-die for the customer to evaluate.
