The ME501/505 are piezoresistive ceramic pressure sensors. The measuring bridge is printed directly on one side of the ceramic diaphragm by means of thick film technology.

The rear part of the diaphragm can be exposed directly to the medium to be measured. Because of the excellent chemical resistance no additional protection is normally required. Owing to the stable baseplate the sensors are free of mounting problems and can be mounted by OEM clients in different customer specific housings. The use of ceramic ensures a high linearity across the entire range of measurement and reduces effects of hysteresis to a minimum. The ME501/505 sensors are thermal compensated by laser adjustable PTC-resistors.
