Alps Alpine Co. Ltd. (Tokyo, Japan) has started mass production of a waterproof pressure sensor that is also resistant to organic constituents in gases.
The HSPPAD143C comes in surface mount and leaded forms and is suitable for atmospheric pressure detection, and depth of water detection.Wearable devices are among the main applications for Alps Alpine pressure sensors to date, with water resistance an important.
The HSPPAD143C has high chemical resistance, achieved by redesigning the resin sensor covering. The adhesive resin between the metal lid and ceramic substrate has also been redesigned, strengthening the bond to successfully enhance shock resistance relative to the existing model. The product’s shape is unchanged from the existing product and water resistance is achieved simply by setting it inside the housing with an O-ring.
