Save Space with Combo Sensors

Many factories use air pressure sensors and temperature sensors in the same machines. Usually, each sensor is its own separate unit. This can waste space and reduce the efficiency of the machine or container due to loss of space and capacity. Although a miniature air pressure sensor is one alternative to larger units, there is one step further than factories can take to save space in their equipment. New sensors include both air pressure sensors and temperature sensors in the same unit. These miniature sensors are able to take up... Read More

The Gold Standard for Identifying Substances

With the Olympics finally over NBC can start running the long awaited show Animal Hospital Whether you watched every event that you could conceivably manage to watch or were unimpressed by the performances of the world's finest athletes, the Olympics are a grand spectacle all the same. From rumors and scandals to triumphs and Cinderella stories, the Olympics has it all. Out of all the doping rumors and scandals, only one athlete's test results turned up positive for anabolic steroids. The athlete was forced to return her medal. Honestly, I... Read More

Passenger Airbag Sensors

When my father still worked for General Motors he used to tell me fun facts about the automobile industry. Most of the information he shared was relevant to his current projects or maybe a reason behind why GM removed an application from its cars. One particular factoid regarded passenger seat-belt lights. Pressure sensor manufacturers provided the auto industry with sensors that turned on a light, if the seat-belt was not buckled when a determined weight was in the seat. This became a problem because the light was turning on and... Read More

Miniature Pressure Sensors: The Size of Tom's Thumb

A pressure sensor can come in a variety of sizes to accommodate the application it was designed for, which means being the appropriate fit for the pipe, tube or system that needs flow recordings. Such an application may be very large, such as the meteorology equipment used to measure the Earth's atmosphere, or very small like the tiny pressure sensors necessary to fit in the fuel lines of a car. Miniature pressure sensors are, in general, manufactured more often then very large ones because they are used in so many... Read More

Gems – OEM Sub-miniature pressure switch offers best-in-class size-to-performance ratio (PS61P)

Miniature Pressure Sensors

Miniature pressure sensors are designed to unobtrusively measure the pressure of gases or liquids and then display the results in an understandable way. These sensors are very small and are designed for use in critical medical or biological applications, where the sensing instruments should provide a very low intrusion volume.

Miniature pressure sensors are composed of transducers, which are similar devices. Transducers convert one kind of energy into another kind; sensors, however, convert energy specifically to provide a readable measurement. Pressure sensors are classified according to the range of pressure they measure, the operating temperature range and the type of pressure they evaluate. There are five main categories of pressure sensors: absolute, differential, gauge, vacuum and sealed pressure sensors. Practically any of these can be miniaturized. A typical pressure sensor is about a cubic inch in size, but miniature sensors can be a fraction of that size. They are usually comprised of at least two wires or probes attached to a round sensor. Usually ceramic, copper or metal components are used. Miniature pressure sensors are capable of accurately monitoring the pressure of fluid and can provide a cheaper alternative to flow sensors. They are used in weather instruments, aircraft and automobiles and can also monitor the engines in many different kinds of machinery.


Pressure sensors
use a variety of techniques to take measurements. In general, however, pressure sensors turn the physical force being exerted on them into a reading that can be represented by a gauge, dial or display. Air and atmospheric pressure sensors use a silicon diaphragm that bends depending on how much force is exerted on it. A charge running through it communicates to the sensor the corresponding pressure and the sensor displays it. Advancements in technology and materials have enabled sensors to become smaller and more accurate. Integrated circuits in particular make miniature pressure sensors possible because they can be very small while still retaining all the necessary components. Pressure sensors can benefit from the use of calibrators and regulators. Pressure calibrators are devices that measure the pressure and then compare that to what the pressure sensor reads. They help maintain accuracy, which is important for many pressure systems. Sensors are able to detect and report pressures with a margin of error less than one percent. Pressure regulators monitor and control the actual flow of pressure and are often found directly on a nozzle or valve. As a safety and loss management precaution, regulators and sensors can be programmed to alert operators if the system's pressure is too high or too low.
