Pressure sensors

The right pressure sensor for the application

A pressure sensor, also called pressure transmitter or pressure transducer, measures pressure and converts that reading into an industry-standard signal. Sensors are optimized for various applications, such as refrigeration, HVAC, industrial gases, food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, mobile machinery, power generation, and semiconductors. WIKA’s portfolio of high-quality pressure sensors and differential pressure transmitters covers these and other industries, with measuring ranges from 20 inWC to 217,500 psi, digital interfaces such as CANopen and IO-Link, multiple international approvals, and instruments for use in hazardous areas and hydrogen-powered vehicles.


How does a span error affect the accuracy of a pressure sensor?

The span error changes the measuring result since it changes the slope of the characteristic curve. At the beginning of the scale, this error is of minor importance, but it adds up and from a certain size it is noticeably significant.
