Different types of pressure sensors applications

2015-04-24

Piezoresistive pressure sensors are used for control and monitoring in thousands of everyday applications. Pressure sensors can also be used to indirectly measure other variables such as fluid/gas flow, speed, water level, and altitude. Pressure sensors can alternatively be called pressure transducers, pressure transmitters, pressure senders, pressure indicators, piezometers and manometers, among other names. let's see what sendo sensor can offer.

Heavy Duty/Industrial Pressure Sensors feature a much more rugged enclosure than other transducers. They are designed to accommodate heavy industrial environments. They also often feature a scalable 4-20mA output that provides much greater immunity to electrical noise which is not uncommon in industrial environments.


Flush Diaphragm Pressure Sensors
With flush diaphragm pressure Sensors, the diaphragm is flush to the process. This eliminates a cavity above the diaphragm that could collect fluid matter from the process. In certain applications, this may be very undesirable. Those applications include monitoring the pressure of foods or liquids that have very high viscosity.


Low cost Pressure Sensors

Low cost Pressure Sensors are the most common since they are designed to fit the broadest set of applications.


High Stability/High Accuracy Pressure Sensors

Most pressure Sensors feature an accuracy of 0.25% of full scale or higher. High stability and high accuracy pressure transducers can offer errors as low as 0.05% of full scale, depending on model. Although more expensive than general purpose transducers, they may be the only option if high precision is required.


Special Purpose Sensors
Sendo offers a variety of pressure Sensors with special features. These include pressure transducers designed for pressure measurement in very high or low temperatures, submersible pressure transducers, barometric pressure transducers and pressure transducers with digital communications output or wireless outputs.
