I need to get a pressure gauge to use on my BS2 to read depth in feet. Any help pointing me in the right direction would help loads! Any one out there have any ideas and a sample code? Thanks in advance for your time!

How deep do you need to read?

I would like something near 200 feet or anything close. I am building a ROV and need to measure the depth it's at. Thanks for your help!

What's the typical pressure at that depth? Hundreds of pounds....??

There's Setra as a mfgr...but I'm sure they're costly!

Do you want to read pressures? or a specific pressure trip point? ... if the latter, you could use a well pressure switch....set it for a certain pressure and there ya are!

No i need it to read different pressures at different depths.

···You could consider·the pressure·sensor from a digital tire pressure guage· -about $10.00 to $15.00 .· I have not hacked mine yet, however it should not be too·hard to get a useable signal. I am fairly sure that it is rugged enough to do what you want, b ut I do not know if it has enough range. Do you know what the P.S.I is at 200 feet?·

could it be

86.6 psi @ 200 ft
