Precision pressure transducers

For monitoring and control of particularly sensitive processes

Precision pressure transducers, somemtimes known as precision pressure sensors, convert pressure into an analog or digital signal proportional to the pressure being sensed. A precision pressure transducer (also referred to as a pressure transmitter) are used to monitor and or control sensitive pressure processes. They can also be used as high accuracy transfer standards or as a factory working standard for testing or calibrating a variety of pressure measuring instruments. With an accuracy as high as 0.008 % of reading, these pressure transducers can be found in laboratories or in production environments where a high degree of precision and accuracy are required. Each transducer is calibrated in Mensor's 17025, A2LA certified laboratory.

How do you zero absolute a pressure transducer?

There are two ways to accomplish this. One involves a piston gauge or a deadweight tester being used as the reference standard, while the other uses a precision barometer as the reference to set the zero. Another technique, which uses significantly less setup time and cost, is taking a precision barometer and using it as a reference standard to zero absolute transducers.

What are 3 benefits of continuous output readings from pressure transducers?

Continuous output readings benefit users that want to easily integrate pressure transducers into their larger system, monitor measurements around the clock or customize their readings to include output frequency, temperature data or the uncertainty at each pressure point.

What is the Difference Bewteen a Pressure Transducer and a Pressure Sensor?

A pressure transducer will turn pressure into an electrical signal while a pressure sensor only measures pressure.


What is the overpressure limit?

Pressures up to the overpressure limit will not cause any permanent damage to the measuring instrument, however, the error limits specified in the data sheet could be exceeded.
