Pressure sensor


Using Silicon On Sapphire technology or strain gage, these high-accurate and prolonged stability-type pressure sensors are sensors that measure pressure as electric signals. Connect to various measuring devices for measurement purposes, the sensors perform displaying, recording, controlling, monitoring the pressure, etc.


Direct pressure-type sensors with Silicon On Sapphire (SOS) technology

The pressure sensors have silicon thin film (epitaxial growth) formed on a sapphire (Al2O3 single crystal) board. Using this silicon thin film, silicon semidonductor strain gages have their electrical resistance wires themselves connected to a sapphire board, consisting of an ideal sensor that is extremely stabilized physically and electrically. Approximately 60 units are used in each H-IIA rocket.

Adopted the strain gages made in-house

By adopting strain gages manufactured in-house that excel in prolonged stable performance, MinebeaMitsumi maintains a stable supply of high-quality, highly-reliable pressure sensors.
