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..

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.

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.

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.

Have you looked at TURCK or SUNX pressure sensors.

Not sure about their pricing tho.
