I am evaluating a MPXV7002DP for a HVAC application measuring a range of 0-5"WC. The performance of the sensor is fine, but I have some concerns about the surface mounting with out any type of board locks or mechanical support. Often people do not treat these devices with the care they require, and I have already had one ripped of the board when attempting to remove a hose. I have thought about using an epoxy to provide a stronger mechanical connection, but repair and rework would be difficult.
Has anyone had any experience with using a bracket, standoffs and screws to provide more support to the sensor? Or is there a different package with board locks/screw holes built in?
Thanks - Brian
