Barometric Pressure Sensor (piezoresistive)


The OMC-506 Barometric Pressure Sensor is a high precision sensor with which Observator can guarantee an accuracy of ± 0.5hPa / 0.05% FS. This sensor is often used on board offshore platforms within met systems, within the Obsermet OMC-410 MultiMet Sensor and various other applications. The OMC-506 is based on a stable, floating piezoresisitive transducer and a micro-processor with build in 16 bit D/A converter.

It is recommended that each new installation is fitted with a Signal Conditioning Unit OMC-183 which is also available through OSIL.
