Pressure Sensors Constructed for Sub-sea Level Measurement


Mt. Olive, NJ, May 16, 2011 - Sub-sea level measurement can be accomplished with the use of a pressure sensor. Typically an ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) is lowered into the ocean with a pressure port either installed inside an enclosure or completely exposed to the sea water. As the ROV is submerged, water pressure is exerted on the diaphragm of a pressure sensor. The deeper the system is submerged, the higher the pressure. By calculating salt water density at 1.025 (or 2.5 % more dense than fresh water at 4°C) a correlation between pressure and output signal can be made to measure equipment depth ...
