Pressure sensors

The Honeywell pressure sensor I use in the EFIS is quite expensive. A few people asked if it can be replaced with cheaper option for the altimeter.

The main reason I chose to use the Honeywell is that it has a barb to attach a tube. I guess a cheaper option would be attaching a barb to a BMP-085. I’ve tried, couldnt make it reliable enough.

Anyway, today I found a sensor that can potentially replace the Honeywell

It is a  NPA-700B-015A from AMPHENOL ADVANCED SENSORS

This sensor is has 14bit ADC and communicates via I2C, just like the Honeywell.

The sensor costs about $29 at Arrow.com

I have not tested the sensor yet, but I think it has a potential.

 

There is a differential sensor from the same manufacturer – NPA-700B-001D (7.5kPa differential range)

It is also works via I2C

I might use it for the angle of attack…. maybe….

    This is completely same as HSCDANN001BA2A3 but with different pinout.
    I think this one will work. Ha?
