A pressure switch can help ensure safe, reliable measurements for an application, but only if you fully understand the physics of its mechanics and the various nuances such as the setpoint, reset point and deadband. But what does deadband mean and how does it apply to a pressure switch? This article will explain the meaning of deadband and how it works so you can help ensure continued accuracy for your application.
Your pressure sensors are an important part of your application, ensuring accurate and reliable measurements and the safety of your process and its operators. To keep your processes working properly, recalibration of your sensors may be necessary over time. Sensors can degrade over time as components are exposed to wear, temperature and cycling. This can lead to a loss of stability and drift in the output signal of the sensor away from its published specification.
