Check That Water and Oil

Welcome to All Sensors “Put the Pressure on Us” blog. This blog brings out pressure sensor aspects in a variety of applications inspired by headlines, consumer and industry requirements, market research, government activities and you. In this blog we’ll be discussing the pressure in water and oil.

Check That Water and Oil

And don’t forget to check the tire pressure, too. A little over 50 years ago these were commonly used in the predecessors to today’s gas stations – service stations. In addition to pumping gas, the service station attendant would perform routine but often mandatory measurements. In those days, the reliability of vehicles would frequently require adding water, oil and air. Vehicle reliability has improved significantly since then. With today’s rugged and affordable sensors for pressure and other parameters, these and other measurements are performed continuously – the vehicle provides the service of monitoring itself for the driver and mechanics.

Common pressure sensor measurements in modern vehicles include engine oil pressure, tire pressure, side airbag pressure in crash detection systems, manifold absolute pressure, barometric pressure, seat occupancy pressure and more.
