Hampton VA, USA?? –?? Measurement Specialties, Inc. has just released to production its MS8607-02BA01 digital PTH (Pressure, Temperature, Relative Humidity or RH) fusion sensor.
This small QFN packaged 5 x 3 x 1mm?? integrated pressure, relative humidity and temperature sensor is ideal for weather station applications embedded into compact devices, or any application in which pressure, RH and temperature monitoring is required.
The MS8607-02BA01 includes two sensors with distinctive MEMS technologies to measure pressure, RH and temperature.
The first sensor is a piezoresistive sensor providing pressure and temperature, and the second is a capacitive-type sensor providing relative humidity (RH).
Each sensor is interfaced to a ?? ADC integrated circuit for digital conversion where the MS8607-02BA01 converts the uncompensated analog output voltages to a 24-bit digital value for the pressure and temperature measurements, and a 12-bit digital value for the RH?? measurement.
This sensor requires 8 pads for operation, uses I??C communication and operates at a 1.8 ??? 3.6 V supply voltage.
With an operating pressure range of 10 to 2000 mBar, it has a pressure accuracy of ??2.0 mBar (@25 ??C, 300???1200 mBar) and pressure resolution of 0.016 mBar.
Operating at a humidity range of 0 ??? 100% R.H., it has a humidity accuracy of ??3.0% R.H. (@25 ??C, 20???80% R.H.) and humidity resolution of 0.04% R.H.
In regards to temperature, this sensor operates at -40 ??C to +85 ??C with a temperature accuracy of ??2.0 ??C (-20 ??C???+85 ??C) and temperature resolution of 0.01 ??C.
The MS8607-02BA01 is well suited for applications in the consumer electronic and industrial marketplace such as smartphones and tablet PCs, HVAC applications, weather stations, printers, and home appliance and humidifiers.
