Application Note

Selection Of The Right Pressure Sensor

Source: First Sensor AG

Selecting the right pressure sensor for each application includes choosing not only the pressure range, but also the type of pressure measurement. Pressure sensors are designed to measure a certain pressure in comparison to a reference pressure, which can then be divided into absolute, gage, and differential devices. This application note describes these terms with the basis of First Sensor’s piezoresistive pressure sensors, and discusses how to use these definitions in selecting the best pressure sensors.
