This sensor has been specifically designed and tested to meet the harsh requirements found within many Aerospace applications.
PDCR 300 is founded on the highly reliable silicon chip produced within Druck’s own 21st Century clean room. The Piezoresistive technology has been developed and enhanced for more than 45 years, which is widely used within the Aerospace / Industrial and Oil & Gas markets. This compact analogue sensor provides unrivalled performance across a wide Pressure and Temperature range, which lends itself very well for use in hydraulic applications. No micro-processors are adopted within this product, which enables reliability at high temperatures to be achieved. The conditioned millivolt output is distributed through a 4-wire configuration.
The refreshed PDCR 300 Test sensor, encompass a further 11 pressure ranges, which now captures low pressure barometric ranges up to high pressures for use in such applications as hydraulic monitoring. This now provides a complete range of rigorously tested ‘small form’ pressure sensors, suitable for all ground and flight testing applications within both the Aerospace and wider markets.
PDCR300 has been specifically designed to satisfy the customers need for a wide range of applications, focussing on:
- High accuracy analogue output
- Small form factor
- High temperature constant use
- Mechanically resilient to installation and torque
Our focus for this product is to primarily serve the Chinese Aerospace Test Market, whilst also considering expansion in to other regions and markets. To satisfy this, the product range will be manufactured in our China facility, supported by our local commercial, application and engineering team. The improved PDCR 300 has been designed, tested and validated by our highly skilled China team in conjunction with our UK Centre of Excellence, which utilises the latest technological advances from our rich heritage, spanning 50 years.
Whilst this product is targeted for the test and development applications, the product has followed the same rigorous process as other airborne pressure sensors. This ensures that the product benefits from the same robust and reliable attributes, derived from the use of analytical tools and physical testing.
Druck is also pleased to announce that a new fully configurable, flight qualified product will become available during 2022. This product completes the gap in our COTS flight qualified offering, which completes phase 1 of the Next Generation 3000 series (NG3000) offering.
