Pressure Sensors: The Design Engineer’s Guide

The advent of smaller, lower-cost and lower-powered pressure sensors has increased efficiency and performance, and generated a new wave of innovation, in both the sensors themselves and their applications. As demand for these technologies is increasing, the worldwide pressure sensor market is estimated to grow to $11.4 billion by 2024. With a variety of different sensor technologies now available on the market, it can be difficult to know where to start.

The Design Engineer’s Guide to Pressure Sensors was created to help you understand the types of sensors in common use, their operating principles, and their modes of use (absolute, gauge, or differential). Whether you’ve designed with pressure sensors before or not, this field guide is intended to provide a comprehensive overview of the technologies, insight into the various applications, and assistance in finding the sensor that’s right for your design.
