Description

This sensor gives the pressure in head:

 

H = p / (rho * g)

 

with rho the density of the fluid and g the specific gravity. The head is the rise of fluid in meters if an open tube would be connected. The figure below shows an example for water at 1 bar and 20 degrees (rho = 998 kg/m3) giving a head of 10.2 m.
