HONEYWELL INTRODUCES ONE OF THE INDUSTRY’S SMALLEST AMPLIFIED DIGITAL PRESSURE SENSORS TO HELP REDUCE DESIGN, MANUFACTURING COSTS

Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today announced its new Amplified Basic Pressure (ABP) sensor, one of the smallest amplified digital pressure sensors in the industry, to help engineers design systems that fit on increasingly smaller and lower power devices. The ABP sensor features wet-media compatibility, as well as sleep mode and temperature
output options, making it a versatile choice for Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

Measuring 8 by 7 millimeters, the ABP sensor’s small size will help engineers significantly save board space and reduce design and manufacturing costs, while maintaining enhanced performance and reliability of the systems they design.

The ABP sensors will be among the most accurate of their kind with a ±1.5 percent total error band (TEB), and capable of reading pressure ranges from 60 mbar to 10 bar, 6 kPa to 1 MPa and 1 psi to 150 psi. This will enable engineers to better optimize system performance by improving resolution and system accuracy.

“Low power systems and the ‘Internet of Things’ are expanding into many industries. As a result, engineers have more pressure now to develop not just smarter, but smaller systems to fit these emerging trends,” said Dan Herzog, product line director, Honeywell Sensing and Productivity Solutions. “Our new amplified digital basic pressure sensors were designed to help engineers meet these aggressive design goals by saving valuable space and cost without compromising the end product’s performance.”
