underside pressurization as a standard and is thus suitable for
measuring pressure in a number of different liquids and reactive
gases for e.g. industrial, medical and HCAC-applications.
Industrial pressure transmitter in a new package
AMSYS presents the newest 24 bit barometric pressure
sensor module MS5805 of the
