Aanderaa Pressure Sensor

Aanderaa pressure sensors are compact, intelligent pressure sensors designed for use on Aanderaa Data Instruments dataloggers as well as in other measuring systems.

  • Features
  • Selection Guide

The sensors are based on a silicon piezoresistive bridge sampled and temperature compensated by an advanced Digital Signal Processor. Since all calibration and temperature compensation data is stored internally,pressure can be presented directly in engineering units without any external calculation. The range on both SR10 outputs is user configurable, i.e. confine the range to get optimal resolution.

The sensor is also available in a vented version. This means that the sensor is automatically compensated for air pressure. This is done by use of a compensating unit placed in air and an air-pipe in the cable between the sensor and compensating unit.
