Description The CPC and CPX Series sensors integrate silicon micromachined sensing technology, temperature compensation, and calibration in a complete family of low cost packages. This series offers the most cost-effective solution for design requirements. These piezoresistive pressure sensors use micromachined silicon chips mounted on a ceramic and protected with a plastic cap. Several tube arrangements with nylon housings are available for various pressure applications. On devices of 5 psi and above, the topside of the chip is protected against humidity by a Silgel coating. While the sensors are designed for use with noncorrosive, nonionic pressure media, they accommodate many gases that are used in medical applications. The CPC Series is designed for the lowest cost and smallest profile. The standard packages have only a plastic cap for OEM applications. The CPC...F accommodates pressure measurements in tube applications.
