Detectors & Sensors
Circuit uses a NPP301 pressure sensor. Range of this
sensor is1bar15psi. It will output40mV at normal air
pressure and3x overload doesnt damage the device.
Circuit adds programmability to
03/21/2002 EDN - Design Ideas / The
pressure-sensor amplifier circuit of Figure 1 offers
a number of advantages over the traditional approach
using the classic three-op-amp instrumentation
amplifier. The circuit can operate from a single
supply and uses only two op amps and 1% resistors.
If the reference voltage, VREF, is 0V, the
transducer gain for the circuit isTo ensure equal
gain for the two ground-referenced volt... .
Fluid solution for water-tank
06/09/97 Electronic Design - Ideas for Design /
Liquid sensors require a media-compatible,
solid-state pressure sensor. The pressure range of
the sensor depends on the height of the column or
tank of fluid that must be sensed. Described here is
a way to sense water height in a tank or column
using. . .
