In which Setra Systems shares with us the important differences between their capacitive pressure sensors and other companies’ strain gauges.

2011 January 13

How long has Setra Systems been manufacturing differential pressure sensors?

Well, it’s been about 40 years and they’ve gotten pretty terrific at it. And to help you understand just how seriously they take the design and creation of their 100% US-made, totally 17-4 PH stainless steel capacitors, Setra’s Sales Rep Tim Dixon recently sat down with alpscontrols.com President David Meyers to talk in-depth about the superior accuracy, reliability and durability of capacitive pressure sensors as compared to the piezoresistive technology strain gauges that are found in other pressure sensors on the market today.

Here’s a disclaimer, though: this video is epic at just under 15 minutes long. We know: on the internet, that’s an enternity – but the reason for the length is because Tim goes into a high level of detail about how Setra Systems designs their sensors; why that design creates a more robust, accurate instrument; and ultimately how much better your pressure measurement capabilities will be over the long run if you could stop for a bit and consider the level of design intelligence that goes into Setra System products.

So stop for just a bit now – for about 15 minutes, in fact – and get enlightened:
