The Dielectrics' manometer is a low-cost device used to measure pressure and is designed to integrate into other disposable products.
How it works
Essentially the Dielectrics' manometer is an air cell pressure transducer. By accurately tracking the air cell's distortion during inflation, and correlating that with a fixed scale, a wide range of pressures can be measured. The technology platform can also be customized to measure negative pressures and even flow rates of air (and other fluids) in a dynamic system.
By changing the properties of the thermoplastic film, and the hinge geometry, it can be calibrated to various pressure ranges. The manometer is designed to be fabricated in a high volume, low cost process.
