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, you can use the link of the smart Andreae high school students.
AMSYS offers a USB multifunction interface. It allows the pressure sensor to be plugged onto a board and connected to the computer. This starter kit AMS 6915 can be used to check the functionality of the pressure sensor, to read out and store the measured data and to reprogram the BUS address of the pressure sensor independently.
AMSYS presents the SM9336, a small digital (I²C) pressure and temperature sensor with impressive performance features in the lowest pressure range of ± 2.5 mbar.
The pressure sensors are individually linearized, calibrated and temperature compensated and require no additional circuitry. The OEM sensors* are suitable for automatic SMD mounting (JEDEC J-STD.-020D.1) and can be reflowed onto standard PCBs.
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.
Innovative sensor technology
The range of AMSYS pressure sensors extends from wafer level silicon sensors to simple SMD-mountable sensors and compensated dual-in-line sensors to packaged, ready-to-use pressure transmitters.
In addition to pressure sensors and inclinometers, AMSYS offers miniaturized OEM sensors for humidity and temperature measurement.
