TE Connectivity releases MS5839-02BA, a Harsh Media Resistant Digital Pressure and Temperature Sensor

January 13, 2020 Perry Cohen

TE Connectivity, a company focused on connectivity and sensors, has released the MS5839-02BA, an ultra-compact, chlorine resistant digital pressure and temperature sensor. The development of this sensor came to fruition with the knowledge that there is a growing demand for high-performance and precise sensor for products such as swim watches and diving equipment.

The MS5839 is a digital altimeter, measuring 3.3 x 3.3 x 2.75 mm, that is optimized for applications where chlorine and saline are present. The gel-filled design enables devices to function in harsh environments while providing accurate and reliable digital measurements.  

 “The MS5839 is an excellent choice for next-generation application designs for device manufacturers with its harsh media resistance and ultra-compact size,” said product manager of TE, Dr. Xérviar Esebamen, in a press release.  “It further enhances our commitment to help design engineers meet safety, productivity, efficiency, and sustainability objectives in an increasingly interconnected world.”

This MEMS based sensor offers advanced water resistance, chlorine resistance, shielding, low power consumption and digital interconnectivity in an ultra-compact, low profile package. The board level design delivers sensing accuracy for both pressure (±0.5mbar) and temperature (±2°C) measurements.
