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!
This article was originally published on August 9, 2021, and was updated on June 5, 2023. The semiconductor industry affects nearly every aspect of our lives today. Your cell phone, computer, television, car and any other electronic device you use each day all depend on semiconductor applications to exist. But these demanding applications require specialized high-purity equipment and instruments to run safely, efficiently and properly. Pressure transducers (and pressure transmitters but for simplification in this article I will refer to them as "pressure transducers") are crucial to the semiconductor process, but only if they are manufactured a certain way to handle hazardous environments. How do you know what makes the best semiconductor pressure transducer?
