Advantages of SI-3151 Capacitive-Absolute Pressure Transmitter

The characteristics of capacitive pressure transmitters are:

  1. High output signal: The circuit of the pressure transmitter can directly convert a small change in capacitance into a high output signal. without signal amplification. The piezoresistive sensor (thin mode, C-type) has disadvantages such as low output signal and easy to be interfered by external signals. This is usually the main reason why the sensor has poor stability, is greatly affected by temperature, and is susceptible to electromagnetic wave interference.
  2. Good long-term stability: Compared with other similar products, the pressure transmitter has higher stability. Unlike other sensors such as metal strain sensors, capacitive pressure transmitters have little creep, aging and temperature effects. Almost all adverse factors have less impact on the output stability of capacitive sensors than other forms of sensors. The zero point stability of the pressure transmitter can reach 0.05%FS/year.
  3. Mechanical deformation: A small change in the distance between the plates of the sensitive capacitor mold can produce a measurable voltage signal change. The small mechanical deformation greatly reduces the hysteresis and non-repeatability errors of the sensor, and the speed of the sensor is also greatly improved.
  4. Wide measurement range: SI-3151 Capacitive-Absolute Pressure Transmitter has a very wide measurement range, it can accurately measure the pressure in the range of 25Pa ~ 70MPa, and has extremely high stability.
  5. High performance: The capacitive material used to make the transmitter has extremely stable physical and chemical properties. Make the product have extremely high performance. Sensors with accuracy up to ± 0.02%FS, stability better than ± 0.05%FS. Such high performance is difficult to achieve by products using other sensitive principles.

absolute pressure transmitter working principle

Pressure (gauge pressure)/absolute pressure transmitter is a pressure signal measured with atmospheric pressure/vacuum as the reference terminal, and only one port is connected to the process pipeline.

The working principle of metal capacitive pressure (gauge pressure)/absolute pressure transmitter is:
When the pressure acts indirectly on the surface of the metal measuring diaphragm (elastic measuring element) of different thickness through the isolation diaphragm and the pressure guide medium. Make the diaphragm slightly deformed. The maximum deformation does not exceed 0.1mm. A high-precision measurement circuit converts this tiny deformation into a voltage signal that is linear with the differential pressure signal. After linearization, temperature compensation. Then use a dedicated chip to convert this voltage signal into an industry standard 4-20mA current signal or 1-5V voltage signal.

The working principle of capacitive pressure transmitter and capacitive absolute pressure transmitter is the same as that of differential pressure transmitter, the difference is that the pressure of low pressure chamber is atmospheric pressure or vacuum.

Learn More About Capacitive-Absolute Pressure Transmitter

Absolute pressure transmitter is also a kind of pressure transmitter. However, the zero point of its starting pressure is absolute vacuum, and the pressure can be measured without internal vacuum at all. Absolute pressure transmitters are mainly suitable for measurement in cross-industry closed systems and places where altimeter measurement is required.

In the era of industrial automation, absolute pressure transmitters are widely used in:

  • Hydraulic and pneumatic control systems;
  • Petrochemical, environmental protection, air compression;
  • Power station operation inspection, locomotive braking system;
  • thermal power unit;
  • Light industry, mechanical metallurgy;
  • Building automation, constant pressure water supply system;
  • Other automation and detection systems;
  • Industrial process detection and control;
  • Laboratory pressure calibration, etc.

Speaking of the difference between absolute pressure transmitter and gauge pressure transmitter, you first understand the meaning of absolute pressure and gauge pressure.

Absolute pressure, or true pressure, is the pressure calculated from absolute zero pressure. Or the pressure calculated from the vacuum as the starting point. Absolute pressure, referred to as absolute pressure.

Gauge pressure, referred to as gauge pressure, refers to the pressure calculated from the local atmospheric pressure at that time. When the measured system pressure is equal to the local atmospheric pressure at that time, the pointer of the pressure gauge points to zero. That is, the gauge pressure is zero.

Vacuum degree, when the absolute pressure of the system being measured is less than the local atmospheric pressure at that time, the difference between the local atmospheric pressure and the absolute pressure of the system at that time is called the vacuum degree. The pressure measuring instrument used at this time is called a vacuum gauge.

Absolute pressure transmitter, we have explained above.
The gauge pressure transmitter is the most common pressure transmitter we often say.

The difference between absolute pressure transmitter and ordinary pressure transmitter

The scale of the starting point is different:
The starting point of an ordinary pressure transmitter, the zero point, is the pressure in the atmosphere. At this time, the bellows of the pressure transmitter is under the standard atmospheric pressure. , the output is 4ma.
The starting point for absolute pressure transmitters is absolute pressure. That is, the absolute pressure transmitter under atmospheric pressure displays the value of atmospheric pressure. The pressure at zero point 4ma at this time is absolute pressure zero.

The structure is different:
The diaphragm on the low pressure side of the absolute pressure transmitter is evacuated and has no air guide tube.
The low-pressure side diaphragm of ordinary pressure transmitters is directly in contact with the atmosphere, and usually has an air guide tube.

The measurement methods are different:
Ordinary pressure transmitters lead atmospheric pressure to one end of the pressure sensing element for comparison with the measured pressure. The difference between the two pressures is the measured pressure.
The pressure measured by the absolute pressure transmitter also needs to subtract the local atmospheric pressure.
