How does a pressure sensor behave in the overload area, that means outside the measuring range?

I have often been asked about the behaviour of a pressure sensor outside the specified measuring range, that means in the overload area and what will happen if the overload limit of a pressure sensor is exceeded. This fact is described as follows in the book “Electronic pressure measurement”:“Pressures within the overpressure range will not … Read more

Filling liquids in pressure gauges: Usage and advantages

Liquid-filled pressure gauges are employed in applications that involve high dynamic shock and vibration loading. The filling liquid dampens the vibrations that occur and thus takes the load off the mechanical components of the pressure gauge.Pressure gauge with filling liquid ? model 213.53Use of filling liquidsDepending on the operating conditions, glycerine-water mixtures or silicone oils … Read more

What does maximum operating pressure or working pressure mean with pressure sensors?

Our customers like to talk about a maximum operating pressure or working pressure. Unfortunately, these two terms are not defined for pressure sensors, which means that a definitive answer cannot be given. All we can assume is that, by maximum operating pressure or working pressure, the maximum pressure that can occur under normal operating/working conditions … Read more

Level sensors ? the agony of choice?

If one is looking for a level sensor, one can be quickly overwhelmed by the huge selection. An even sensor for limit level detection or continuous measurement could be ordered in a variety of technologies and design variants. But how do I find the appropriate level sensor for my application?If one really wants to select … Read more
