With the rise in smart watches and navigation systems, absolute pressure sensors find homes wherever elevation above sea level (altimeter measurement) is required. Weather stations also use them for barometric pressure measurements.
Physical separation from hazardous media: Fluid-isolation barrier can be implemented to prevent corrosive media coming into direct contact with the sensor diaphragm; Heat is dissipated from the media in the tube.
Pressure sensors for use with corrosive media often feature housings made from stainless steel or plastics such as PVDF, PVC or PPS. TM Sensor use a stainless steel diaphragm backed by silicon oil that transfers pressure to the sensing element.
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
