AMS5105 Series combines high precision OEM pressure sensors with programmable pressure switches in one package. AMS5105 has an analog voltage output and two independent logic switching outputs. The analog voltage output is ratiometric to the supply voltage of 5V. The switching outputs are software configurable as normally open, normally closed or two window mode; threshold and hysteresis can be set individually. The pressure sensors/switches are calibrated and compensated for a wide temperature range of -25°C to +85°C.

AMS5105 is available for various applications and pressure ranges: differential for 0-5 mbar up to 7 bar, an absolute pressure version for 0-1 bar and a barometric version. Bidirectional differences models are available in different ranges from -5 to +5 mbar up to -1 to +1 bar. Other pressure ranges or customizations available upon request.

Typical applications include:

  • HVAC
  • Gas flow
  • Fluid level measurement
  • Pressure measurement and control
  • Vacuum measurement and control
  • Process control
  • Medical instrumentation
