Pressure Instruments – Spring-piston Pressure Sensors

Spring-piston elements consist of a piston opposed by a spring. The application of pressure moves the piston. The position of the piston opens or blocks instrument air ports in the cylinder wall, changing the pneumatic output signal. These sensors are used in pneumatic pressure switches, which are often called pressure pilots or stick pilots. See Figure 400-5.
