Tips: How does a differential pressure sensor work?
A differential pressure sensor measures the difference in pressure between two points in a fluid system. It typically consists of a diaphragm or a flexible membrane exposed to the fluid on both sides. When the fluid pressure at one side of the diaphragm differs from the other, it causes the diaphragm to flex. This flexing generates a mechanical displacement that is converted into an electrical signal.
Commonly, two pressure ports are connected to the sensor, one on each side of the diaphragm. The pressure difference between these ports causes the diaphragm to move, which changes the capacitance, resistance, or piezoelectric properties of the sensor, thereby generating a measurable electrical signal. The magnitude of the signal correlates with the pressure differential, allowing for precise pressure measurements. Differential pressure sensors are used in various applications, including airflow measurement, liquid level monitoring, and industrial process control.
