AMSYS presents the newest 24 bit barometric pressure sensor module MS5805 of the company Measurement Specialties. The module has a pressure resolution of 0.02mbar (15cm altitude resolution) and a temperature resolution of <0.01°C and is therefore suitable for high precision applications. The current consumption of only 0.9µA qualifies the sensor module, which needs no external components, especially for battery bound applications. Despite of its small size the MS5805 is gel-coated and therefore protected against moisture and dust.
