The IAQ-program at the University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern stands for Ingenieurwissenschaftliche Abschlussorientierte Qualifizierung, helping non-German engineers and academics to familiarize with German working philosophy in order to integrate the local labour market. Since May 2020 PhD engineer Walid Sher Hussain, participant in the IAQ-program works with AMSYS in Mainz and speaks about his experience: [...]
When measuring pressure, it’s not only important to have the right pressure sensor to hand; sometimes there are also difficult problems to be overcome. One example is where the controller cannot be directly installed at the point of measurement. Here, a combination of DPC-100 (controller) and an external pressure sensor in the DPH-100 series provides [...]
Air pressure decreases from point zero (= sea level, at 1013 mbar) with increasing altitude. Atmospheric pressure changes, at constant temperature, with approximately 1 mbar / 8 m. But it's trickier than that. You can find more on this topic in our description "Precise altitude measurement with a pressure sensor module". For a quick result, [...]
Sleep apnea is a common disease that affects many people around the world. The remedy is a device known as CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure). These include sensors that guarantee controlled breathing support with defined airflow, air temperature and humidity. This article explains how the pressure sensors work.
