DPS5000 I2C - Digital Pressure Sensing Platform - DESCRIPTION
The new DPS5000 from DRUCK, part of the UNIK5000 family, offers integrated digital electronics to enhance the performance level of the UNIK 5000 Pressure Sensing Platform to levels unmatched by traditional analog sensors. It features an "I-squared-C" (I2C) digital interface, over which fully compensated readings of Pressure and Temperature are sent, as well as control of many functions of the device. One of the key benefits of the DPS 5000 series sensors is that they are low powered devices offering a high level of accuracy over a wide temperature range. The I2C-bus interface provides compensated pressure and temperature readings and allows the sensor operation to be software controlled.
The sensor is available as either an external or internal variant. The external variant is a sealed device with the electrical connections made via an integral cable. The internal variant is an open frame device with electrical connections made via an integral plug.
