Electrical Pressure Sensor Types

Here is an introduction to the basics of electrical pressure sensors, from Tony Kuphaldt's Lessons in Industrial Instrumentation.

This presentation explains how a variety of electrical pressure sensors work, including piezoresistive (strain gage), differential capacitance, and resonance sensors.

Sensor principles, sensor mounting and associated hardware design for pressure transmitters and differential pressure transmitters are also described.
