Air Pressure Project

by acdavis1999 on Thu Jan 31, 2019 7:04 pm

Hi, I am working on a project and was curious if the Adafruit MPRLS Ported Pressure Sensor Breakout is capable of reading air pressure? I would like to work on a smaller project that needs an air pressure gauge and would like to use something like this so I can format more of the output.

What PSI or pressure range do you need?

Right now I'm looking in the range of 15 PSI - 20.

Product says it can do 25PSI so it should be OK. The tutorial may help.

So in this case any sensor (barometric) would work for measuring air pressure as long as it meets the psi range?
