Fields of application for pressure sensors 4 ? summary

In Enraged about the fields of application of different pressure sensors, I have described the special top features of the different versions. Pressure range and ambient conditions are decisive when selecting a suitable sensor for an issue to be solved.
In smaller measuring ranges (e.g. < 10 bar), you should know whether a vented gauge pressure, non-vented gauge pressure or absolute pressure sensor is used because, with an activity pressure of 10 bar, the indication of the measured value (1.23/10 bar x 100 % = 12.3 % measurement uncertainty) moves between 8.77 bar and 11.23 bar in line with the selected reference point (0 or 1 bar) and the varying ambient pressure (+/- 230 mbar).
In case of high pressures (e.g. > 1000 bar), it is becoming less and less important to know which sensor type is used because the maximum error of just one 1.23 bar only leads to a measurement uncertainty of 1 1.23 bar / 1000 bar x 100% = 0.123 %. The fields of applications described here are just a few selected examples of the sometimes completely different fields of application of the various pressure sensors and show that, in each case, the specific accuracy requirements and ambient conditions should be considered.
