I have searched and not found any information on this so decided will make a thread to help out in the future.
I am attempting to read the air pressure from a vehicles air suspension. I am using 1/4" port air pressure sensors, Arduino nano and Arduino compatible LCD screen for output. My current goal is to read in from one sensor and display the current PSI.
Working Voltage: 5VDC
Output Voltage: 0.5-4.5 VDC
Sensor material: Carbon steel alloy
Working Current: <=10 mA
Working Pressure Range: 0-1.2 MPa
Cable length: 17cm / 6.69inch
Sensor Length: Approx. 5.1cm / 2.01inch
Screw Diameter: 1.3cm / 0.51inch
Destroy Pressure: 3.0 MPa
Working TEMP. Range: -20 to 85 Celsius Degree
Storage Temperature Range: 0-85 Celsius Degree
Measuring Error: +_ 1.5 %FSO
Temperature Range Error: +_3.5 %FSO
Response Time: <=2.0 ms
These have 3 wires. Power, Ground, And Signal.
My first question would be how to connect with sensor to the NANO board?
I see that power and ground can go to where it needs to and then the signal does to the board.
And then how would i lay out the code. I am very knowledgeable with C. I’ve seen many i can edit but feel like i can have something very simple to start with.
Any input or advice is welcomed. Will update on progress
