For the industry novice looking to understand the basics of pressure measurement instruments, it can be confusing and overwhelming to search through the seemingly limitless number of available transmitters and transducers. The good news is, Ashcroft has been a pressure solution expert for decades. Additionally, as a product leader, I personally have extensive experience in precision pressure and temperature measurement that stems from my degree in electrical engineering and working in the industry for more than 40 years. In this article, you’ll learn: ● What these pressure sensors do and how they work ● Why output (the type of signal you need) will be the primary reason to choose one option over the other ● How each sensor performs in terms of accuracy, cost and reliability When you are done reading you will be able to speak knowledgeably about pressure sensor basics and know whether a pressure transmitter or transducer is the best fit for your needs. So, let’s get started!
Safety should always be top of mind when it comes to critical process applications. The safety of your operators and your customers is crucial and using high-quality pressure measuring instruments can help you avoid disaster. Analog pressure gauges are an efficient and reliable way to measure pressure in your process. But with so many digital options on the market today, why wouldn’t you want the latest technology and all the bells and whistles that come with it? The answer is: you can have both!
