Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is the difference between a pressure sensor, pressure transducer, and pressure transmitter?
A: Please note that these terms are often interchanged without regard to the meaning below, and that the exact definitions may differ from source to source. These are general definitions. A pressure sensor is typically a millivolt output signal, a transducer has an amplified voltage output, and a transmitter offers a 4-20mA output signal.
Q: What does long term stability mean? How does it affect measurements?
A: Long-term stability is normally associated with the change in zero offset due to aging of component and relaxation of the metallic diaphragm over a period of time. It normally causes the zero reading to go high or low over time. Independent tests carried out have shown this number to be <.25% under the influence of temperature and pressure cycling for 1500hrs.
