Barometer

Description#

The barometer sensor is a way of measuring atmospheric pressure from a range of different interfaces. The barometer sensor will output voltage based on the absolute pressure in the air in processing and has a standard measurement tools for recording the atmospheric pressure.

Range upper#

Range upper is the upper limit of absolute pressure that the sensor can measure

Range lower#

Range lower is the lower limit of absolute pressure that the sensor can measure

Maximum output#

Maximum output is the maximum voltage the sensor can output at the upper range

Minimum output#

Minimum output is the minimum voltage the sensor can output at the lower range

Sensitivity#

Sensitivity is the input sensitivity of the barometer. It is default calculated based on the range and output but can manually be changed dependent if desired.

Calibration date#

Calibration date is last date where the sensitivity has been changed
