Operating principle of pressure sensors
Pressure sensors belong to the category of process sensors, and are often also referred to as pressure switches. Usable in a variety of applications, the robust and wear-free pressure sensors convert measured physical pressure into an electronic output signal for display on a digital or analog readout.
Consequently there are numerous applications for pressure sensors, such as:
- Hydraulic applications
- Pneumatic applications
- Pressure testing in factory automation and refrigerating technology
- Pressure monitoring in machine tool construction and the food industry
- Vacuum and pressure monitoring in pneumatics of robotics and handling technology
