Studying the datasheet, in my interpretation, this measures the pressure at the inlet 
P1 relative to the atmospheric pressure, since P2 is not sealed under vacuum. However, on a
delivery side, it is referred to as an "absolute" pressure measuring, which would mean a measurement relative to 0Pa. How to interpret it?

Hi Sandor,

Your interpretation is correct, the MPXV5004GC6U is a positive gauge pressure sensor measuring the positive pressure on the P1 side relative to the ambient pressure on the P2 side.

Best regards,

Tomas
