This section illustrates Applied Measurements gauge pressure sensors range that can be used to accurately measure pressure referenced to ambient atmospheric pressure.
These precise gauge pressure sensor ranges covered are 0-50mbar up to 0-3000bar, as well as negative pressures below atmospheric pressure down to -1bar gauge (full vacuum).
Applied Measurements gauge pressure sensor can offer various output signals including mV/V, 0.5-4.5Vdc, 0-5Vdc, 0-10Vdc and 4-20mA, with customised outputs available on request.
All our gauge pressure sensor models can be supplied with Applied Measurements digital displays and indicators, signal digitisers, telemetry systems, data loggers and acquisition equipment from our range of transducer instrumentation. Calibration traceable to UKAS standards is available on all gauge pressure sensors and systems.
What is Gauge Pressure?
Gauge pressure, also known as ‘relative pressure’ or ‘vented gauge pressure’, is the measurement of pressure relative to the current atmospheric or barometric pressure.
A gauge pressure sensor has the back of the sensing element open (or ‘vented’) to provide a reference to atmospheric pressure.
