The sensor Type 6217A is a precise high pressure sensor with excellent linearity and lifetime. The front sealing construction minimizes the dead volume, allowing high frequency measurements, and low thermal and mechanical stressing of the sensing element. Due to the high sensitivity and excellent linearity, the sensor is well suited for mesurements in partial ranges. The output connector may be selected as needed (KIAG 10-32, BNC & TNC), further increasing the flexibility. The quartz sensing element results in high stability and good resilience against pyroelectric effects. Furthermore, the identical sealing ring is used for all high pressure sensors (Types 6213, 6215 and 6217), minimizing the number of components required.
