From the Lab: Developing the PT-500 Submersible Pressure Transducer

The PT-500 submersible pressure sensorToday we want to give you a sneak peak into the lab at APG. Our submersible pressure transducer has been around for a while now, but, like many of our sensors, it is under continual improvement. We want to give you a look at some of the decisions we made while developing our submersible.

A New Transducer Face

We switched up the actual transducer technology to MEMs sensing elements. The move did a few things for the sensor. Overall, the transducer is much more stable, and less prone to drift. Additionally, it’s more durable. The sensor’s diaphragm can be handled without damage to the sensor.
