Gage Pressures (PSIG)
The pressure is measured relative to ambient pressure such as oil pressure. Kulite uses a patented dual diaphragm (dual sensor) approach consisting of a first sensor to measure the primary pressure and a secondary sensor to measure the ambient pressure. The outputs are subtracted to give a true gage pressure reading. This approach yields a hermetically sealed vented gage pressure transducer. Typical applications are engine oil, gear box oil and fuel pressures.
