AXTAL BRKM-P

DIFFERENTIAL PRESSURE SENSING QUARTZ CRYSTAL RESONATOR BLOCK
BRKM-P
APPLICATIONS
BRKM-P is a quartz crystal resonator assembly, which consists of a measuring and a
reference quartz crystal, both packaged in a rectangular enclosure. The resonance frequency
varies with pressure-induced stress. BRKM-P is designed as a component for precision
electronic differential pressure transducers, manometers and controllers with a frequency
output for conversion of absolute pressure or differential pressure to frequency.
FEATURES
-
High resolution and accuracy
Long term quartz crystal stability
Wide temperature range (-55…+80 °C)
Low power consumption
Suitable for precision pressure equipment
In gauges of differential pressure BRKM-P is used to convert a pressure difference to a differential frequency output signal
fout =fMEASURING – fREFERENCE. An absolute pressure ( or differential pressure) P1 is applied to diaphragm (1), while the absolute atmospheric
pressure (basic pressure) Р2 acts on diaphragm (3) (see drawing below), which stresses the reference resonator through the metal pipe (6).
One end of the connecting pipe is attached to an outlet of the quartz block, and the second one to an internal cavity of the case of the gauge
(5) where BRKM-P is subjected to the pressure Р1. The internal cavity of the gauge is usually filled up by oil.
