Preventing Dementia with Pressure Transducers?

Pressure transducer suppliers create a wide variety of pressure sensors and transducers for a wide range of applications. Pressure sensors are necessary in many applications for monitoring industrial processes to guiding traffic lights, and even controlling the opening and closing of doors. With all the uses for pressure sensors out there, it is not surprising that a new use for the products come out everyday. In fact, even the medical industry uses pressure sensors to help monitor the signs of dementia in certain high-risk patients. Pressure transducer suppliers have come... Read More

Pressure Regulators Allow Scuba Divers to Safely Inhale

I have a friend who did a lot of scuba diving in high school. I forget the name of the program he was involved in, but it could be described as the Boy Scouts of the sea; except both boys and girls could participate. This youth club went embarked on "missions" in the Great Lakes on specialized ships for days at a time to do some scuba diving. I still remember him telling me stories of exploring ship wrecks and acting like a navy sailor. In order to be apart... Read More

Suppliers Online

If you feel like your business needs a boost and you haven't already developed a presence online, then it is time to jump on the bandwagon and try your hand at internet marketing. Suppliers, such as specific product suppliers like pressure transducer suppliers, will benefit from getting online just as much as manufacturers, distributors and job shops will. The key is creating a website that effectively presents your products in an easy to navigate way, while also encompassing the spirit of your company well. Not only are you selling your... Read More

Atmospheric Pressure Sensors

Atmospheric pressure sensors, also known as air pressure sensors in some contexts, measure the force exerted by the weight of air and convert the information from electrical energy to a readable display. Sensors take the energy from the force of the pressure and change it into a comprehensible form that can be read from a gauge or display. Sensors are used extensively in meteorology to help identify weather patterns and predict upcoming storms. Scientists use atmospheric pressure sensors during research and experiments because substances behave differently when under pressure.

Atmospheric pressure sensors are also called barometric pressure sensors, because barometers are instruments that measure atmospheric pressure, which is the force per unit area exerted against a surface by the weight of air. A column of air measured from sea level to the top of the atmosphere weighs approximately 14.7 pounds per square inch (PSI). There is less pressure at high elevations because there is not as much air or atmosphere above: the higher above sea level, the lower the pressure. Because atmospheric pressure varies, these sensors are useful and very important. The size and shape of these sensors varies depending on the intended application. For example, scientists hiking up a volcano will use a battery powered sensor with a thick plastic case to protect it from the rough conditions whereas research conducted in a lab requires only a small electronic model. Atmospheric pressure sensors provide mountaineers with information about their elevation, helping keep them safe.


Atmospheric pressure sensors are designed using a silicon diaphragm that bends or resonates with increased and decreased intensities, depending on the pressure. For example, on top of a mountain the diaphragm would not have as much pressure from the atmosphere above and would therefore not bend as much as it would at sea level, where the air column exerting force is taller and weighs more. A charge running through the sensor detects and transmits the frequency information to the display, usually producing a reading that compares the atmospheric pressure to absolute pressure, or the pressure of a perfect vacuum, which is 0 PSI. This provides a common starting place for readings and helps standardize results that are important to the scientific community. Atmospheric pressure sensors need to be calibrated at times to ensure that the readings are accurate. Calibrators are instruments that make sure that everything is functioning correctly and accurately; it is a safety hazard if air pressure is unregulated or misread. Air is less dense at lower pressures and is therefore much cooler than at normal elevation; many atmospheric pressure sensors have a temperature compensation feature to take this into account.
