BLVR Series

The BLVR Series Basic Sensor is based on a Dual Die Reference technology to reduce all output offset or common mode errors. It also incorporates All Sensors CoBeam2 TM Technology to reduce the overall supply voltage while maintaining comparable output levels to traditional equivalent basic sensing elements. This lower supply voltage gives rise to improved warm-up shift while the CoBeam2 Technology itself reduces package stress susceptibility resulting in improved overall long term stability. The technology also vastly improves position sensitivity to nearly unmeasurable levels.   This series is intended for use with non-corrosive, non-ionic working fl uids such as air, dry gases and the like. The output is also ratiometric to the suply voltage and is operable from 1.8 to 3.3 volts DC.

Specification notes

NOTE 1: SHIFT IS RELATIVE TO 25°C.


NOTE 2: SHIFT IS WITHIN THE FIRST HOUR OF EXCITATION APPLIED TO THE DEVICE.


NOTE 3: MEASURED AT ONE-HALF FULL SCALE RATED PRESSURE USING BEST STRAIGHT LINE CURVE FIT.


NOTE 4: THE SPAN IS THE ALGEBRAIC DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FULL SCALE OUTPUT VOLTAGE AND THE OFFSET VOLTAGE.
