Can NI 9215 be used for pressure sensor measurement?

I am very new to NI. Can NI 9215 be used for pressure sensor measurement? If it is possible how will the set up and wiring be?

Thank you very much.

Yes.....       IF your sensor has a (+-) 10 V voltage output ...  and external powersupply

 

Other sensors can be adapted ,  a 10V output is a common industrial standard and you get signal conditioners for that for all kind of sensor types.

 

What type of sensor do you have?

What presure range do need to measure?

Dynamic range? (How fast is your pressure changing? )

 

Ah, and wellcome to NI forum Smiley Happy

Thank you for your prompt reply and the info!

 

I am using it for measuring relative pressure of +2kPa (20mbar) gage range. I am still trying to find a suitable sensor. Some of the possible sensors are:

Also is it better for me to buy a 2-wire or 3-wire sensor?

 

And thank you for your warm welcome!

The best would be a 3 wire output with 0-10V  output

You will need an additional 14V - 30V powersupply  (commonly used with a  24V DC industrial powersupply)

Connection ist shown in the DMP 343 wiring diagram. the circle (A/V) in the diagram is your NI9215 .
