Types of Pressure SensorsPressure sensors can be classified in terms of the pressure range they are measuring, operating temperature range, or the type of pressure they are measuring. In terms of pressure types, pressure sensors can be divided into several main categories:① Absolute Pressure Sensor
PT100 Temperature Sensor (RTD)Pt100 is a sensor used to measure temperature. It is one type of sensor which falls into a group called Resistance Temperature Detectors or RTD’s.
Reaction Torque Transducer PrinciplesA reaction transducer has two mounting flanges. One face is fixed to ground or a rigid structural member and the other to the rotating or rotary element. Rotation generates shear forces between the flanges.
The basic principle, it is a measure of the “force” being used (or attempting) to turn an element. This measurement is achieved by the use of strain gauges bonded to the shaft, measuring the strain, induced in the shaft by the applied torque or “force”.
Load Cell is a device that converts force into electrical signal.
Strain gage based load cell is made of a specially engineered mechanical component called as an element.
Load cell is a sensor or a transducer that converts a load or force acting on it into an electronic signal. This electronic signal can be a voltage change, current change or frequency change depending on the type of load cell and circuitry used.
A position sensor is any device used for measuring the distance traveled by a body starting from its reference position. It measures linear or angular position in reference to a fixed point or arbitrary reference.
This section illustrates our range of gauge pressure sensors that can be used to measure pressure referenced to ambient atmospheric pressure.
A Position sensor is any type of device which detects the movement of a chosen object in either a Linear or Rotary motion and converts the movement into output signals which are suitable for processing, transmission or control depending on the application.
