Working Principle:

The measuring pressure is applied directly on stainless steel non-corrosive membrane. The applied pressure creates deformation on sensor membrane.
This deformation alters the output signal of the strain-gauge bridge attached to the rear of the membrane.

An electronic circuit integrated into the device converts the bridge signal into a standardized electrical output signal.
