What Does Pressure Sensor Mean?
A pressure sensor is a device used to measure and record the pressure applied by liquids or gases. Most sensors work by converting pressure into an analog or digital signal that is then sent to a gauge to display the reading. Some pressure sensors can also be used to indirectly measure other parameters, such as fluid level, flow speed and altitude. Pressure sensors are used in various industrial equipment, such as tanks, vessels and pipelines to continuously measure stress readings.
Pressure sensors are also known as pressure transducers, piezometers and pressure indicators.
