BP 20 Sensor working

Recommended Posts

The RNRG BP20 Barometric Pressure sensor uses absolute pressure transducer that creates a 0-5V DC signal. The output voltage is directly proportional to the barometric pressure. For example:

 

The transfer function of the sensor is kPa = (Voltage x 21.79) + 10.55 typical (each unit comes with a unique calibration sheet).

 

A 1v DC output from the sensor would be kPa = (1 x 21.79) + 10.55 = 32.34 kPa ~ 323.4 mb.

 

A 4.8v DC output from the sensor would be kPa = (4.8 x 21.79) + 10.55 = 115.142 kPa ~ 1151.42 mb.

 

That being said, the lowest recorded barometric pressure on earth was 870 mb and the highest was 1083.3 mb. This means that the voltage output will realistically range between 3.5V - 4.5V DC.
