Ceramic pressure sensor working principle

The corrosion-resistant ceramic pressure transmitter has no liquid transfer. Pressure acts directly on the front surface of the ceramic diaphragm. Make the membrane slightly deformed. Thick film resistors are printed on the back of the ceramic diaphragm and connected to form a closed Wheatstone bridge.

Due to the piezoresistive effect of the varistor, the bridge generates a voltage signal that is highly linear and proportional to the pressure and proportional to the excitation voltage. The standard signal is calibrated to 2.0 / 3.0 / 3.3 mV / V according to the different pressure ranges, which is compatible with strain gauge transmitters.

Through laser calibration, the transmitter has high temperature stability and time stability. The transmitter comes with temperature compensation of 0 ~ 70 ℃, and can directly contact most media.

Ceramic is a recognized material with high elasticity, corrosion resistance, wear resistance, shock resistance and vibration. The thermal stability of ceramics and its thick film resistance can make its operating temperature range as high as -40 to 135 ° C, and it has high accuracy and stability for measurement. The degree of electrical insulation is> 2kV, the output signal is strong, and the long-term stability is good.

Ceramic Diaphragm Pressure Sensor

The ceramic Diaphragm pressure sensor is a ceramic piezoresistive pressure sensor refined by a thick ceramic process using a refined ceramic base. Overall dimension Φ18mm * 6.35mm. Ceramic is a recognized material with high elasticity, corrosion resistance, wear resistance, impact resistance and vibration.

The good thermal stability of the ceramic and the high-temperature sintering process of the thick film make the working temperature range of the ceramic pressure sensor up to -40 ~ 125 ℃. The ceramic’s high elasticity and creep resistance make the ceramic pressure sensor have good long-term stability. In addition, the corrosion resistance of ceramics makes it uniquely advantageous in the fields of refrigeration, chemicals and environmental protection.

Piezoresistive Pressure Sensor

 Piezoresistive pressure sensor

The piezoresistive pressure sensor is constructed using the piezoresistive effect of single crystal silicon. A single crystal silicon wafer is used as an elastic element, and an integrated circuit process is used on the single crystal silicon membrane. A group of equivalent resistors are diffused in a specific direction of the single crystal silicon, and the resistors are connected into a bridge circuit. The single crystal silicon wafer is placed on Sensor cavity. When the pressure changes, the single crystal silicon produces strain, so that the strain resistance directly diffused thereon changes proportional to the measured pressure. Then the bridge circuit obtains the corresponding voltage output signal.

The ceramic pressure sensor is mainly composed of three parts: ceramic ring, ceramic diaphragm and ceramic cover.

The ceramic diaphragm is used as a sensitive elastomer. It is made of 95% AL2O3 porcelain. It is required to be flat, uniform and dense, and its thickness and effective radius depend on the design range.

The ceramic ring is formed by hot die casting process at high temperature.

High temperature glass paste is used between the ceramic diaphragm and the ceramic ring. They are fired together by thick film printing and thermal firing techniques to create a force-sensitive cup-shaped elastomer with a perimeter support. That is, a rigid structure without creep should be produced in the peripheral fixed part of the ceramic.

On the upper surface of the ceramic diaphragm, that is, the bottom of the porcelain cup and tea set, the circuit of the sensor is made by thick film technology.

The circular groove in the lower part of the ceramic cover creates a corresponding gap between the cover and the diaphragm. Limits prevent rupture of the diaphragm due to excessive bending when overloaded, resulting in overload protection of the sensor.

There are many types of pressure sensors. Such as resistance strain gauge pressure sensor, semiconductor strain gauge pressure sensor, piezoresistive pressure sensor, inductive pressure sensor, capacitive pressure sensor, resonant pressure sensor, etc.

The most widely used pressure sensors are:
Diffused silicon piezoresistive pressure sensor,
Ceramic Piezoresistive Pressure Sensors,
sputtered thin film pressure sensor,
capacitive pressure sensor,
High temperature sapphire pressure sensor.
But the most widely used is the piezoresistive pressure sensor. It has a very low price and high accuracy and better linearity characteristics.

A pressure sensor works by converting pressure into an analogue electrical signal.

The demand for pressure measuring instruments increased during the steam age. When pressure sensing technologies were first manufactured they were mechanical and used Bourdon tube gauges to move a needle and give a visual indication of pressure. Nowadays we measure pressure electronically using pressure transducers and pressure switches.
