Hey Guys,

Man, I think I am hooked!· Every morning, I think I have another idea on how to use the Basic Stamp.· It doesn't mean I actually understand how to make my ideas work.·http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/eyes.gif

I would like to know where to find an air pressure sensor that will work with the Basic Stamp.· I would like to compare "Positive" and "Negative" pressure of two areas.

Any ideas or suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Joe

What range of pressure do you want to compare?

Hello,

·· Depending on the amount of pressure you want to measure, you could try the PRGPAL.· A link is posted to the product page on our website where you can view the manual and determine if this is a viable solution for you.

Whatever the atmosphere pressure is at sea level.· Nothing like a tire under XXX PSI...· Just the difference between two rooms.

Hope that makes sense.

Thanks,

Joe

Thanks Chris!

I will have to read the PDFs to see if it will work for me.· I·looking to read the pressure of one area, and compare it to another.· I guess you could say one reading would be relative to the other.· If it will tell me which one is under more pressure, then it should work.·

I don't need an exact reading, just the ability to compare and say Area 1 is under more/less (positive/negative) pressure as compared to Area 2.

Thanks again,

Joe
