Fields of application for pressure sensors 4 ? summary

In previous articles about the fields of application of different pressure sensors, I’ve described the special top features of the various versions. Pressure range and ambient conditions are decisive when choosing the right sensor for an issue to be solved.
In smaller measuring ranges (e.g. < 10 bar), you should know whether a vented gauge pressure, non-vented gauge pressure or absolute pressure sensor can be used because, with a process pressure of 10 bar, the indication of the measured value (1.23/10 bar x 100 % = 12.3 % measurement uncertainty) moves between 8.77 bar and 11.23 bar using the selected reference point (0 or 1 bar) and the varying ambient pressure (+/- 230 mbar).
In case of very high pressures (e.g. > 1000 bar), it really is becoming less and less important to know which sensor type is used because the maximum error of 1 1.23 bar only leads to a measurement uncertainty of 1 1.23 bar / 1000 bar x 100% = 0.123 %. Hell of applications described listed below are just a few selected types of the sometimes completely different fields of application of the various pressure sensors and show that, in each case, the precise accuracy requirements and ambient conditions should be considered.
