• Calibration

    The comparison of a pressure sensor output against the output of a reference standard. ESI recommend a calibration interval of 12 months, however it is the user of the calibration item that has sole responsibility for defining the exact calibration interval to best suit the application requirements.

  • Calibration Curve

    A graphical representation of the calibration record.

  • Cavitation

    Process in which small bubbles are formed and implode violently. This can cause aggressive damage in pipework and fittings

  • Chip

    A die (un-packaged semiconductor device) cut from a silicon wafer, incorporating semiconductor circuit elements such as resistors, diodes, transistors, and/or capacitors.

  • Clipping Limits

    The maximum and minimum limits of signal that the product will output under normal operating conditions.

  • Common Mode Voltage

    The voltage between each of the output terminals of a differential output product and electrical ground.

  • Compensated Temperature Range

    The temperature range over which the product will produce an output proportional to pressure within the specified performance limits.

  • Compensation

    The signal conditioning used to provide a calibrated product whose output closely matches the Ideal Transfer Function. Deviation from the Ideal Transfer Function results in errors which are described by the Total Error Band. Circuitry or materials designed to counteract known sources of error are added.

  • Creep

    The change in a sensors output occurring with time after removal of a load which had been applied for a specific period.

  • Creep Recovery

    The change in no-load output occurring with time after removal of a load which had been applied for a specific period.
