DIFFERENTIAL PRESSURE SENSING QUARTZ CRYSTAL RESONATOR
BLOCK BRKMP
APPLICATIONS
BRKMP is a quartz crystal resonator whose construction consist of measuring and
reference quartz crystals packaged to rectangular quartz crystal case. Frequency of oscillation
of BRKMP varies with pressureinduced stress. The crystal designed for function as a
component of the precision electronic differential pressure transducers, manometers and
controllers with a frequency output for conversion the current values of absolute pressure and
overpressure (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 overpressure BRKMP is intended for conversion of overpressure to a differential frequency output signal
F=F

REFERENCE
. An absolute pressure (overpressure) P1 (look at the picture of external dimensions) stressed on diaphragm (1).
Absolute atmospheric pressure (basic pressure) 2 operates on a diaphragm (3). It can supply to the reference resonator through the metal
connecting pipe (6). One end of the connecting pipe is attached to an outlet of the quartz block, and the second  to an internal cavity of
the case of the gauge (5) where BRKMP settle down, perceiving overpressure 1. The internal cavity of the gauge is usually filled up by oil.

Temperature sensing quartz crystal RKT206 is used for compensation of a temperature deviation of BRKMP.
Based on the differential pressure sensing quartz crystal resonator blocks BRKMP the differential pressure transducers,
manometers and controllers with a compensation of the temperature error (accuracy class up to 0.03) are developed and made.
