Production Description:

MTCS2601 silicon sensing die in SMD ceramic package

The MTCS2601 sensors consist of a micro-machined thermal conductivity sensor using four Ni-Pt resistors realized using MEMS technologies. The sensor is mounted in a miniature SMD package, available on tape and real. This MEMS TC sensor, combined with simple low power CMOS standard integrated circuits, is an excellent choice for size-critical leakage OEM detector or miniature vacuum gauge based on Pirani principle requiring ultra-low power consumption, long lifetime and no maintenance. Applications are primary pressure control in rough environment with power and size constraints, or detection in closed volume of gas leakage or moisture, or intrusion.

MTCS2601 Thermal Conductivity Sensor Applications

  •  Primary vacuum control following Pirani principle. This sensor is easily added within a pressure valve or directly in vacuum pipes or systems, such as small mechanical pumping systems, vacuum pumping machine and analytical instruments .
  •  Leakage miniature SMD sensor as control integrity of closed systems or instruments under dedicated pressure, able to detect defect like corrosion or simply box opening (load cells; flywheel systems, Dewar)

MTCS2601 Thermal Conductivity Sensor Features

  •  Thermal conductivity sensor for primary vacuum measurement
