Compound Pressure (+/-)

The refference point of a compound pressure transmitter is set to ambient pressure. Its flexible diaphragm allows a linear output signal from vacuum (-1 bar / -14.7 PSI) through zero pressure to the full scale of the positive pressure. The measurement cell contains a hole that allows inherent compensation for atmospheric pressure changes. Ex.: With Read more about Compound Pressure (+/-)[…]
