Pressure Instruments – Strain Gage Pressure Sensors

Strain gage electronic pressure transmitters operate on the principle that metallic conductors subject to strain exhibit a change in electrical resistance. The application of pressure bends the measuring element, and the resulting change in resistance is converted to an output signal. Ranges are 0 to 30 inches H2O and 0 to 18,000 psig. Strain gages require regulated power supplies. They are very compact and have a high speed of response.
