The Vacuum Pressure Transducer – Function and Types

A pressure transducer measures the amount of pressure exerted by gases or liquids, and converts that pressure to an electrical signal. The aeronautical, vehicle, and manufacturing industry require wide usage of the vacuum pressure transducer. Weather instruments, satellites, aircraft, submarines, and automobiles all have components that require monitoring and the pressure regulation of gases and liquids. They are also an excellent tool for providing a means of measuring leaks.

Transducers Can Be User-Friendly
In being able produce an electrical signal from fluid pressure, some transducers are very user-friendly. The signal can easily be transmitted from the site of pressure to any remote location.

Additional types of pressure transducers may include:

 * PC Board Mountable – These can be mounted on electrical PC boards or easily integrated into other products.
 * General Purpose – Are the most common since their design allows them to fit a broad array of applications.
 * Heavy duty/industrial – These transducers are more ruggedly built than those for general purpose use. They can be expected to well in industrial environments with a high volumes of noise.
 * High Stability – Play a pivotal role where accuracy and stability are required. They can offer extremely low error rates and are generally more expensive than other types.
 * Special Purpose – Can be designed to offer measurements in very high or low temperatures. Types may include submersible, those that communicate digitally, barometric, and wireless.

Consult with the Experts
Companies looking for a vacuum pressure transducer are always advised to consult with the experts who possess the flexibility and talent to effectively solve customer problems. One thing for certain is that each customer will have a different problem to solve. This requires a solution that can be tailored to specific needs. Specialists in the field can help provide that solution. The company chosen should also provide a range of capabilities, and this may include the ability to contract with the military.

Experience and a proven ability to get the job done are the essentials that any client should look for in an engineering company. There may also be additional needs that require solutions for areas such as nuclear, PC, and system acquisition.
