Thin Film Pressure Transducers Ashcroft Model K1

Thin Film Pressure Transducers Ashcroft® Model K1 transmitter introduces the benefits of polysilicon thin film performance at affordable prices. Modern low-pressure chemical vapor deposition methods provide simple, stable molecular bonds between a proven metal diaphragm and a polysilicon strain gage bridge. There are no epoxies or bonding agents to contribute to signal instability or drift.

The polysilicon strain resistors combine very low noise levels with very high signal output. There are no semiconductor (p-n) junctions to change with temperature, time or use. The integral metal diaphragm and polysilicon bridge are virtually unaffected by shock, vibration or mounting position.

Thin Film Pressure Transducers Ashcroft® Model K1 transmitters are offered in many standard pressure ranges with either current or voltage output signals. Transmitter performance is directly traceable to the National Institute of Standards, and Technology and specifications are conservatively stated. A calibration test certificate is available with each transmitter.
