TDK offers compact, rugged pressure transmitter for industrial applications

August 9, 2022

TDK Corporation (TSE:6762) presents the compact, rugged B58620F3800B768 AFA pressure transmitter for screw mounting for a wide range of industrial applications. It is designed for a pressure range of 1 bar to 11 bar and temperatures from -20 °C to +125 °C. The dimensions are only 48 x 27 x 24 mm. The new transmitter offers a high measuring accuracy of ±0.5 percent FS (full scale) in the temperature range from +20 °C to +80 °C.

The piezoresistive pressure transmitter is based on MEMS technology with a robust stainless steel pressure port. It is suitable for pressure measurement of non-freezing media such as fuel, diluted acids or contaminated air. The absolute pressure transmitter has a 0.4 mm diameter pressure port with an M10 thread and is easy to mount. The integrated signal conditioner compensates for non-linearity and temperature errors. It provides a precise, calibrated analog output signal in the range of 0.5 V to 4.5 V with high immunity to electromagnetic interference (EMI).

Typical applications include industrial process control, food packaging systems, pump monitoring, and pneumatic systems.

PCIe Gen5 x16 Running on the Achronix VectorPath Accelerator Card

Sponsored by Achronix

In this demo, Achronix engineers show the VectorPath Accelerator Card successfully linking up to a PCIe Gen5 x16 host and write data to and read data from GDDR6 memory. The VectorPath accelerator card featuring the Speedster7t FPGA is one of the first FPGAs that can natively support this interface within its PCIe subsystem. Speedster7t FPGAs offer a revolutionary new architecture that Achronix developed to address the highest performance data acceleration challenges.
