I am currently using the MP3V5050. Is there any sensor that can perform both negative and positive pressure measurements from the same chip?
Can an absolute sensor measure both?
We do have a few pressure sensors that can handle both negative pressure and positive pressure without resulting in damage in the device. This sensors are MPXV7002 (-2 kPa / +2 kPa), MPXV7007 (-7 kPa/ +7 kPa) and MPXV7025 (-25 kPa/25 kPa).
Absolute pressure sensors cannot measure negative pressure, because they are meant to measure the environment's pressure which is always positive.
