What's their purpose?
How do you measure pressure in a machine or instrument and translate this into an electrical signal? This is possible through electrical pressure sensors.
These sensors usually look very similar in appearance. However, there are many choices to make. Consider, for example, differences in process connection, electrical output, dimensions, weight, temperature range, accuracy, SIL and ATEX classification, compatibility with the environment and so on.
There is a lot possible. Small details can be important while choosing the optimum sensor for your application.
Pressure sensors are often applied in machines and processes whereby the sensor needs to be robust and accurate. They are often linked to a measurement and/or control system. We offer sensors with or without display.
A sensor without a display is often smaller and more robust. Do you want to get an indication of the pressure on site? Then a sensor with display is more suitable. This is especially common in installations where the pressure on a pipe or vessel is read and where direct maintenance is carried out.
Sensors with an extra high accuracy and high frequency response are often used for measurements in a R&D test setting.
