Rugged Barometric Pressure Transmitter
Global Water’s highly accurate WE100 Barometric Pressure Sensor covers a pressure range from 800 to 1100 mb (23.6 to 32.5 Hg). The transmitter is fully temperature compensated within an operating range of -40° to 65°C. It is attached to 25' of marine grade cable, with lengths up to 500' available upon request. The sensor’s output is 4-20 mA with a two wire configuration, which, like all of our 4-20 mA sensors, is compatible with Global Water’s GL500 Global Logger and PC300 Process Controller.

Why Measure Barometric Pressure?
One important parameter in monitoring weather systems is barometric pressure. Changes read by a barometric pressure meter or sensor indicates weather front movement. Most weather stations include a barometric pressure sensor as one parameter they monitor. Barometric pressure sensors are also used for many other applications including ocean buoys, ships, checking engine performance, airports, and many more.
A major use for barometric pressure sensors is related to determining surface and ground water level readings.
