  1. Micron Instruments' Miniature 4-20mA Pressure and Temperature Transmitters
    • Micron Instruments offers a product family of 4.0 to 20.0 mA pressure and temperature transmitters: models MP402, MP502, MPT402, and MPT502
      Most suppliers typically refer to these 4-20 sensors as “current transmitters”. In fact, these sensors sink a fixed current, even when the power supply or line resistance between the sensor and the power supply varies. There are several important benefits of this property.
      If measurements need to be made over a long distance, such as in a large ship or airplane, or down water or gas wells, and the temperature varies, the line resistance will vary as well, causing the sensor to be inaccurate.

  2. High Frequency, High Pressure and High Temperature Semiconductor Strain Gage Sensors
    • High Frequency, High Pressure, High Temperature Sensor Applications
      There are many applications where high frequency pressure at high temperatures is required.
      Applications Include Down-hole oil measurement detecting sudden high pressure or excessive pressure oscillation. Such sensors would provide unattended, early failure warning, and could be designed into a system to automatically detect anomalies and gracefully shut down the sub-system at risk before it destroys itself or blows out the well. When integrated as a wireless sensor, it could also autonomically provide alert and alarm notifications.
