Sensors such as pressure transducers play an important role in measuring and collecting data. The data collected enables users to monitor their equipment and make more informed decisions regarding their application. The pressure gauge was the primary source of data gathering in the past. Users would need to drive to the application site, manually read the gauge, and report back the reading. This process would not only cost time but also money, both in inefficient equipment operations and unnecessary maintenance. The advancement of pressure sensors and transducers has greatly improved the efficiency of collecting and interpreting data in remote applications. When paired with wireless telemetry systems, low power pressure transducers can continuously collect pressure readings and send the readings to the cloud which can be accessed by users in any location.
There are a few popular uses of pressure transducers in wireless telemetry systems. Industrial businesses are typically looking to: monitor inventory, measure for maintenance, and monitor for safety and control.
