Honeywell's diaphragm sensors contain sensing elements that consist of four piezoresistors buried in the face
of a thin, chemically-etched silicon diaphragm. A pressure change causes the
diaphragm to flex, inducing a stress in the diaphragm and the buried resistors.
The resistor values change in proportion to the stress applied and produce an
electrical output. These sensors are small, low cost and reliable. They feature
excellent repeatability, high accuracy and reliability under varying
environmental conditions. In addition, they feature highly consistent operating
characteristics from one sensor to the next, and interchangeability without
Medical and HVAC devices, data storage and gas chromatography equipment, process
controls, industrial machinery, pumps and robotics.
