Overview

How and why do you determine the need for ultra-low-pressure sensing, and how do you implement ultra-low sensors without issues? Join Honeywell engineers as we discuss the engineer's mindset when looking at ultra-low-pressure sensing applications - those less than 2 in H2O pressure. We'll cover questions to consider, real-life examples and design implications.

Ultra-low-pressure sensors can have full scale measurement ranges of 2 in H2O or less. These extremely sensitive devices can be the best solution for many applications such as measuring low airflows, detecting clogged filters or triggering a ventilator to provide pressure to a patient. However, they're also sensitive to unwanted pressure noise from overhead HVAC fans, doors opening and closing, and even medical staff near the sensor.

Join us for this lively presentation we'll discuss how to connect extremely sensitive sensors to avoid major pitfalls, and what to look for when troubleshooting a system.
