The transducer is a Hitachi-unique part that was never sold as a component.  Both Scott Mockry
in the USA and Roger Galvin and I in the UK have successfully sourced alternatives - I think
Scott found a Bosch equivalent and we found a guy in Rugby who could "profile" a standard
transducer with a coupld of op-amps.  The cost was horrendous - around GBP110 (USD180) so we
didn't take it further.

I don't know what Scott is doing now - I sourced some 3kPa transducers in the UK for him a
couple of years back.
