Differential Pressure Sensors for Gases
With our long history of designing differential pressure and flow sensor solutions for medical technology, HVAC, automotive and industrial
automation, we are your ideal partner to develop new products. Sensirion’s differential pressure sensors are perfectly suited for a wide
range of demanding applications for the following reasons:
Measurement of differential pressures down to 0.1 Pa
No zero-point offset, no drift
Calibrated and temperature compensated
Low sensor-to-sensor variation for efficient mass production
Small size, fast response time and high reliability

HIGH PERFORMANCE THROUGH CMOSENS® TECHNOLOGY
All Sensirion differential pressure sensors are based on the innovative
CMOSens® Technology, which combines the sensor component with analog
and digital signal processing circuitry on one small CMOS silicon chip. This
technology offers numerous benefits:
High reliability and long-term stability
Best signal-to-noise ratio
Industry-proven technology over more than 15 years
Designed for mass production
High process capability
Thanks to the thermal flow-through operating principle, Sensirion’s CMOSens®
differential pressure sensors outperform traditional piezo-resistive membrane
sensors in terms of sensitivity at low differential pressures, offset drift and
hysteresis as well as position sensitivity, shock resistance and variations
in temperature.
Sensirion’s differential pressure sensors are particularly suitable for measuring
standard volume flow or mass flow (e.g. flow measurement with an orifice or
Pitot tube). Traditional membrane sensors have to compensate for air density
in order to determine mass flow. Sensirion’s differential pressure sensors
output a differential pressure that is compensated for mass flow and thus
independent of changes in air pressure and temperature. differential pressure

Sensirion’s differential pressure sensors in a bypass configuration are the
ideal, cost-effective choice for measuring air flow with high accuracy, robust-
ness and stability. In a bypass configuration, the differential pressure sensor
is placed over a pressure drop element / orifice. An air flow in the main pass
will create a differential pressure over the pressure drop element, which is
proportional to the air flow.

SDP800 SERIES – PROVEN AND IMPROVED
The SDP800 consequently utilizes the successful features
of the SDP600 series. It is the result of more than 15 years
of experience in measuring the air flow to tens of millions of
patients, and to millions of car engines and HVAC systems.
The sensors of the SDP800 series can easily be integrated
due to its proven form factor. The next generation sensor
chip offers extended functionality, a measurement speed
of 2 kHz, and configurable analog voltage output or a digital
I2C interface. The SDP800 sensor is the reliable and ad-
vanced solution for the most demanding, but cost-sensitive
HVAC applications such as VAV controllers and burners.
SDP3x – CREATING SPACE FOR YOUR IDEAS
The world’s smallest differential pressure sensor measures
only 5 x 8 x 5 mm. Due to its size, it is particularly suitable
for applications where space is limited, such as mobile
and portable devices. The digital version of the SDP3x
offers an interrupt output and selectable I2C addresses.
The version with analog voltage output is highly configu-
rable, enabling it to choose between bi- or uni-directional
measurement, fast or slow response time, and different
temperature compensation modes. All versions of the
SDP3x are reflow solderable and are shipped in Tape
and Reel format to be compatible with the most modern
assembly techniques, such as Pick & Place.
Sensirion’s differential pressure sensors are fully calibrated and temperature compensated. Their excellent accuracy, long-term stability
and no zero-point drift make them the perfect choice for any application. The sensors of the SDP3x and SDP800 series come either with
a digital I2C interface or analog voltage output. The digital versions offer measurement speeds up to 2 kHz, smart averaging functions
and multiple measurement modes.
