Measurement Specialties Recognized For Introducing One Of The Top 10 Most Innovative Sensor Products In 2010

HAMPTON, Va., Jan. 7, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Measurement Specialties, Inc. (Nasdaq:MEAS), a global designer and manufacturer of sensors and sensor-based systems, announced that its MS5607 pressure sensor was selected as one of the "Top Ten Sensor Products of 2010" by the Editorial Board of Sensors & Transducers Magazine. The Editorial Board acknowledged that this sensor was the "most innovative product among all published in the Magazine during 2010."

The MS5607 pressure sensor model is optimized for ultra-high precision pressure measurements in the 10 to 1300 mbar range. High accuracy along with its small footprint make it ideally suited for embedded use in personal navigation aids, personal location devices, smart-phone inertial-navigation, in-building navigation and social alarm applications. This economically-priced sensor is the world's lowest-power pressure sensing module.  

Glen MacGibbon, Company Executive Vice President, commented, "This recognition of our engineering expertise and new product is a direct result of our strategic decision during the recent economic recession to invest heavily in new product development. The MS5607 is just one of many new innovative products we are introducing to the market. Strong customer interest for this product is due to the fact that its small package size and digital output make it easily embeddable into mobile devices where the electronics can be effortlessly interfaced with any microcontroller. Equally important, it also provides a temperature measurement."
