FCI Aerospace's pressure transmitters combine to meet the demand for full qualification compliance with the performance and measurement capability necessary to meet a variety of applications on the aircraft. FCI pressure sensors are the constructed using either thin film sputtered deposition strain-gage or variable capacitive ceramic sensing technologies. Strain-gage elements are directly welded to the pressure port and capacitive elements are sealed to the housing via an O-ring. Bothe sensor types achieve a leak-proof design that ensure a robust solution for all pressure applications including hydraulic fluid, fuel, coolants, air and other media types.

The electronics provide highly accurate and repeatable pressure measurement output signals by utilizing precision analog signal conditioning circuitry and integrated ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) for linearization combined with multiple-point pressure calibrations and temperature compensation.

The sensor elements and electronics are enclosed in high strength stainless steel housing that protect them and ensure continuous operation over wide pressure and temperature conditions.
