Fields of application for pressure sensors 4 ? summary

In previous articles concerning the fields of application of different pressure sensors, I’ve described the special features of the various versions. Pressure range and ambient conditions are decisive when choosing a suitable sensor for a problem 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 is used because, with an activity 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 based on the selected reference point (0 or 1 bar) and the varying ambient pressure (+/- 230 mbar).
In case of high pressures (e.g. > 1000 bar), it is becoming less and less important to know which sensor type is used because the maximum error of just one 1.23 bar only leads to a measurement uncertainty of 1 1.23 bar / 1000 bar x 100% = 0.123 %. The fields of applications described listed below are just a few selected examples of the sometimes very different fields of application of the various pressure sensors and show that, in each case, the specific accuracy requirements and ambient conditions must be considered.
