TE Connectivity at CDI
Model 85VCV Constant Voltage Compensated Vacuum Series
for Medical Instruments, Process Control and More

The TE Connectivity Model 85VCV is a compensated, Constant Voltage, micro-machined, piezoresistive silicon pressure sensor designed for vacuum gage applications, packaged in a 316L Stainless Steel housing. The pressure sensor is offered in a weldable package or with a variety of threaded fittings such as 1/4NPT, and 1/8NPT pressure ports.

This product is designed for OEM applications where compatibility with corrosive media is required. The sensing package utilizes silicon oil to transfer pressure from the 316L Stainless Steel diaphragm to the sensing element. A ceramic substrate is attached to the package that contains laser-trimmed resistors for temperature compensation and offset correction.
