  • There are two types of pressure sensors used for negative pressure or vacuum pressure applications: gauge sensors and absolute pressure sensors. The reference pressure is the differentiating factor between these 2 types of sensors. The diagram below illustrates how the different methodologies work.

  • Various technologies are used to make pressure sensors. 2 of the most common include piezoresistive and capacitive pressure sensors. Both can be used for gauge, differential, or absolute pressure measurement. While piezoresistive is found in low-cost sensors, there are situations where a capacitive pressure sensor is better suited for the application.

  • It's an understatement to say "the world has changed" over the past 25 years. Aside from the multitude of external factors surrounding our lives, the traditional method of transacting business has changed, but not all of it is helpful for engineers in the sensors world.

  • In many applications and industries, it is not uncommon to come across the risk of excessive pressure, or overpressure, within the pneumatic or hydraulic network of equipment, especially in facilities with a high degree of automation. If this phenomenon is not controlled properly, it may cause permanent damage to equipment and production lines which is why pressure sensors are commonly used as some form of protection in several operations such as industrial, ...

  • Medical ventilators supply air or other gaseous mixtures to patients through the use of pressure. These devices are used when patients require assistance breathing or are entirely unable to breathe on their own. One vital component that these systems use to function is a pressure sensor.

  • Choosing the right pressure transducer for a specific application can be overwhelming. There is a vast array of choices, many of which duplicate performance. If you don't find the right combination of features, many manufacturers don't offer modifications or customizations without a large order. That leaves you with little choice but to try to make do with the closest fit. 

  • What is a Barometric Pressure Sensor?

    Abarometric pressure sensor is a new type of barometer that measures atmospheric pressure. They are commonly used for weather measurement, altitude compensation, dive watches, altimeters, underwater equipment, and much more. At Servoflo, we offer a wide range of standard and compact barometric pressure sensors
