TE Connectivity Pressure Sensors

The Design Engineer’s Guide to Pressure Sensors

The advent of smaller, lower-cost and lower-powered pressure sensors has generated a new wave of innovation, increasing efficiency and performance both in the sensors themselves and their applications. The worldwide pressure sensor market is set to grow to $11.4 billion by 2024, as demand for these technologies increases.

Selecting the right sensor technology for your application from the wide variety now available on the market can be challenging. So we’ve created The Design Engineer’s Guide to Pressure Sensors 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.

In this guide you’ll learn about:

  • How pressure sensors work
  • Pressure sensor applications
  • Different types of pressure sensors
  • Output signals
  • Types of pressure measurement
  • Core pressure sensor technologies
  • Pressure sensing for different media types
  • Sensing in harsh environments
  • How to understand specifications
