Pressure sensor cost

Pressure sensor cost

(OP)
I am looking for a pressure transducer, with a threaded port, for water, 80 PSI in the under $40 in small quantities(1-25).  Do they exist in my price range?  Looked at Sensata already but at my quantities they are double ($75) of what I was looking for..




 

RE: Pressure sensor cost

on off or linear? and what accuracy?
 

RE: Pressure sensor cost

(OP)
linear
accuracy maybe +- 2% or so.
I don't want to specify anything custom to keep the cost low.  I would sacrifice a PSI or two over cost.

RE: Pressure sensor cost

If you were buying 100+, some sensor companies might be able to provide an OEM style sensor.

For 25 pieces you you might consider a pc board mount sensor like omega's PX70 (This is just an example, there are many options that may be better for you & better priced!). Then you can buy a tube fitting from McMaster-Carr that will fit the sensor on one end and be thread on the other.

 

RE: Pressure sensor cost

Id check out some of the stuff from Lucas Novasensor. I'm not sure what all packaging options they have but I would assume there 100 psi rated sensors would have some kind of threads.

Try Kavlico.  Don't know about pricing but they supply many sensors to the automotive industry.
