USB Pressure Sensor System


Applied Measurements Pa600-USB digital industrial USB pressure sensor is an easy way of getting pressure measurements straight to your PC or laptop.  To use you simply need to install the sensor and connect the cable, plug the USB interface DSCUSB into the USB port of your computer or laptop and download the free software to get started.

The pressure sensor itself has a high accuracy of <±0.15% full scale and is extremely compact.  It features a high-performance ceramic sensing element and once connected to the USB interface delivers precise pressure measurements with its 24-bit digitisation circuit to a resolution of 1 part in 20,000.

The DSCUSB needs no external power cable as it takes all the power it needs directly from the USB port of your PC or laptop.

The USB Pressure Sensor system is supplied with powerful, user-friendly software which is free to download.  It enables real-time monitoring as a displayed value or visually as a live graph whilst simultaneously recording pressure data into a CSV file at rates of up to 100Hz for later review and analysis in your preferred spreadsheet software.

Additionally, the software allows you to change configuration settings including:

• Measurement Units: The standard scaling units (bar) can be changed to psi, kPa, millibar and many others with just a few clicks.
• Sampling Rate: 1Hz to 100Hz is possible, with lower rates offering higher resolution
• Digital Filtering: Allows you to smooth out any unwanted pressure fluctuation from your measurements.
