Differences Between Pressure Sensors and Pressure Transmitters

Pressure transmitters are known as pressure sensors in some areas.

A pressure sensor generally refers to a sensitive element that converts a changing pressure signal into a corresponding changing resistance signal or capacitance signal, such as a piezoresistive element, piezocapacitive element, and so on. 

Pressure transmitter generally refers to a complete set of circuit units for measuring pressure composed of pressure-sensitive elements and conditioning circuits. Generally, it can directly output standard voltage signals or current signals that are linearly related to pressure for instruments, PLCs, acquisition cards, etc. collected directly from the device.

The difference between a pressure sensor and a pressure transmitter is that the output of the pressure sensor is an mV signal while the pressure transmitter outputs a standard voltage signal, current signal, and digital signal.

With years of experience in developing and manufacturing piezoresistive pressure sensing and measuring products since the 1970s, Micro Sensor offers pressure transmitters, pressure sensors as well as level sensors and transmitters. We offer standard pressure sensors and transmitters and we customize our transmitters for specific needs in both general and the process industry.

3. Pressure Sensors for Inkjet Printers Monitoring Solutions

Pressure sensors in inkjet printers control the pressure applied to the ink to achieve the desired quality of inkjet. MicroSensor provides high-precision and sensitive pressure sensors for industrial inkjet printers. The MPM3801 pressure transmitter outputs a digital IIC or SPI signal, which can monitor pressure and temperature at the same time. The MPM280-PC3 pressure sensor is easy to clean and hard to be blocked thanks to the flush diaphragm and the compact size is more flexible for installation.

5. Smart Pressure Transmitter for Pneumatic Conveying System in Lithium Battery

Pressure monitoring of lithium battery pneumatic conveying systems helps ensure the stability and safety of system operation. 

Pressure transmitters are usually installed at critical nodes of the pneumatic conveying system, such as air supply devices, pneumatic conveying pipelines, or gas storage tanks. By monitoring pressure, you can detect pressure changes or fluctuations in the system in time and take necessary measures to ensure the system's normal operation. 

It is recommended to take corresponding maintenance and adjustment measures based on the monitoring results to ensure the normal operation and safety of the lithium battery pneumatic conveying systems.

6. Pressure & Level Transmitter for Water Treatment 

In water treatment plants, pressure sensors or level transmitter monitoring is designed to help operators ensure the safe and efficient operation of the water treatment process.

Liquid level sensor is commonly used in water tanks, clarifiers, filters, and other parts of water treatment plants. Pressure monitoring monitors pressure changes in pipeline systems and equipment during water treatment. Pressure sensors can also be used to monitor filtration pressure, backwash pressure, etc., in water filtration systems. These data can be used for feedback and adjustment of the control system to ensure the regular operation of the water treatment process.


7. Pressure Monitoring for Ship Ballast Water Tanks

Ship ballast water tanks adjust the center of gravity, buoyancy and stability of the ship. Monitoring and controlling the ballast tank pressure ensures the ship's safety. Micro Sensor provides anti-corrosive level, pressure, and flow measurement solutions to ensure effective management and monitoring.
