ADVERTORIAL TECHNOLOGY IN ACTION


New low cost range of safe and hazardous area pressure transmitters T


he AMO M10 is a new low cost industrial pressure transmitter designed for general purpose pressure measurement. This sensor is rugged and durable, providing accurate measurement even under harsh


conditions, available in gauge, absolute and sealed gauge versions. The MPM489 model is the ATEX approved version certified to ATEX Exia IIC T4 Ga.


The Diaphragm is the sensing element in these pressure sensors which is comprised of multiple layers


including a silicone substrate. The strain on which is determined using a diffused resistor network. Monocrystalline silicone is the low-cost material used in the manufacturing of these semiconductor based sensors. Silicone material displays excellent piezoresistive properties.


When pressure is applied, the diaphragm flexes and causes a deformation in its crystal lattice which ultimately


modifies the band structure placed on the diaphragm and changes the resistivity of the material. Semiconductor resistors on the front side transduce this tension into resistance changes by means of the piezoresistive effect.


Silicone in its crystal form is a hookean material which, when flexed, has virtually zero hysteresis and hence does


not have any energy dissipation. Silicone is highly reliable as it displays low fatigue stress characteristics and it can be deflected in the range of billions to trillions of cycle without failure


Silicone has Young’s Modulus of about 2*105 MPa, which is same as that of steel, but silicone is as light as aluminium, with a mass


density of about 2.3 g/cm3 . Silicone has a melting point of about 1400°C.This high melting point makes silicon dimensionally stable even at elevated temperatures. Its thermal expansion coefficient is about 8 times smaller than that of steel, and is more than 10 times smaller than that of aluminium. Silicone is an elastic material with no plastic or creep below 800°C.These unique features makes it an ideal material for piezoresistive pressure sensors


The method of assembly has a substantial effect on the sensor's characteristic performance. These piezoresistive silicone sensors


convert mechanical tension to an electrical signal and cannot distinguish between tension due to the signal (pressure) and that caused by thermal expansion changes or other effects. The sensor data therefore tends to have a thermal dependency which requires accurate on-board compensation. The major advantage of this fabrication technique however guarantees high precision and large volume production at low costs.
