Pressure Transmitter (Current)

Description#

The pressure transmitter current sensor is one of two ways of measuring pressure from a range of different interfaces. The pressure transmitter current sensor will output current based on a pressure in the air in processing and has a standard measurement tools for recording the pressure.

To see the pressure transmitter current measurement tools read more about them here:

Name#

Name specifies the name of the block.

Manufacturer#

Manufacturer is an optional specification you can write.

Model#

Model is an optional specification you can write.

Serial Number#

Serial Number is an optional specification you can write.

Internal Number#

Internal Number is an optional specification you can write.

Range upper#

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

Range lower#

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

Maximum output#

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

Minimum output#

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

Sensitivity#

Sensitivity is the input sensitivity of the pressure transmitter. 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

Non-linear Correction#

Non linear Correction is a post calibration from Pa/Pa which corrects any deviations from the sensor. Default this does not do anything, but you have the option to use up to a third-degree polynomial to correct any sensor deviations. Use the coefficients below to apply it.
