Pressure Sensors of Flexible and Reliable Electrical Interface

BCM SENSOR is proud to present two new options of pressure sensors which are integrated with flexible flat cable (FFC). As an example, this newsletter announces the newly released ceramic pressure sensors of the two options, as shown in the picture below.               Such the FFC features excellent flexibility and weldability, resulting in easy handling and reliable electrical interface of the pressure sensors. The difference between these two options of FFC is their insulation material. The yellow insulation material is Kapton, while Read More...

High-Resistance Strain Gauges to Lower Your Power Consumption

BCM SENSOR has recently succeeded to manufacture the single-grid linear strain gauge of 5000Ω resistance in a compact size (*). (*): Gauge length: 4mm; Backing dimensions (width x length): 5.6mm x 8.5mm. Such high-resistance strain gauges are specially demanded in the applications of low power consumption, for instance the applications of battery-powered devices or systems such as the wireless sensors and wireless sensor networks, and remote or portable testing equipment. Moreover, the bridge circuit of the high-resistance strain gauges can permit higher excitation Read More...

Absolute Pressure Sensor Dies of Small Foot-print for Absolute Pressure Applications of Wide Measuring Range

BCM SENSOR is proud to present a newly released absolute pressure sensor die, model SE113, which is a version of smaller foot-pint (2 x 2 mm), compared to its sister model SE103 that is one of our hot-sale sensor dies. The model SE113 is specially designed for either absolute pressure measuring or absolute pressure control/monitoring applications. It targets to automotive industry, medical devices, HVAC applications, and household industries. Compared with the other two absolute pressure sensor dies, model SE101 and SE102, Read More...

Compact Design on Pressure Sensor with True Flush Diaphragm

BCM SENSOR has applied metal foil strain gauge technology on the pressure sensor to achieve the true flush diaphragm. As such the diaphragm is completely flat without any corrugated structure on the diaphragm, it is ideal for the applications which require cleaning process for viscous pressure media or media with particles. Recently a new compact design of model 132F has been unveiled as shown in the picture below. The total length is 30mm shorter than our current 132F. Key specifications of Read More...

Full-Bridge Strain Gauges with Integrated Flat Leads on One Backing

New Compact and Neat Design to Realize Your Circuit BCM SENSOR has recently succeeded to integrate the flat leads into the pattern design of the metal foil strain gauges so that the flat leads become the part of the strain gauge. Flat leads are naturally insulated with the backing and encapsulation of the strain gauge. The solder pads as electrical contacts are located at the end of the flat leads. The picture below shows one example (*) of this design on Read More...

20th Anniversary of BCM SENSOR

On the 8th of January 2016, BCM SENSOR celebrates the 20th Anniversary as a manufacturer of a wide range of sensors, from sensing elements to complete transducers and transmitters. Established on the 8th of January 1996 in Antwerp, we started with metal foil strain gauges, semiconductor strain gauges and bondable resistors offering very good performance to price ratio and short lead-times for both standard products and customized solutions. In 1997 our product range was extended with load cells and load pins, Read More...

Miniature Submersible Liquid Level Transducers

BCM SENSOR has recently launched a newly developed liquid level transducer, model LV16, for mass production. This miniature liquid level transducer is based on piezoresistive working principle and has a very thin (Ø12mm) transducer body made from 316 stainless steel. (more…) Read More...

Flip-Chip Pressure Sensor Dies

BCM SENSOR has recently released a newly developed flip-chip pressure sensor die for mass production. This flip-chip sensor die, model SE105, is based on piezoresistive working principle and is manufactured by 6” silicon micro-machining process. Shown in the image are two cross section of the SE105 flip-chip sensor die, which can be used for gauge or absolute pressure measurement: Thanks to the unique manufacturing process, the flip-chip is realized at the SE105 pressure sensor die, resulting in the following advantages comparing Read More...

101B(a19G) Pressure Sensors Now with Digital Output

To broaden the application range of general purpose sensors 101B(a19G) BCM SENSOR has upgraded this model to the digital output of both I2C and SPI.
