For my setup I cant use the 0-150psi pressure sender. will this sender still work? The code on the first page, will that work for the 0-400psi pressure sender unit?

    The code is for the 150psi unit. If you use something else than you will need to calibrate it, or find a pre-done curve. If you find a predone curve, then you can plug it into Excel and get an equation easily.

    how do I calibrate it? is there a pre-done curve? how did you get the code for the 150psi one?

    You calibrate it by reading in values and comparing it to known values. So put the system at X psi, read in the value, and therefore that value = that psi. Change system to psi Y, then read in the value, and therefore that value = Y psi.

    You have to look at the sensor datasheet to see if they already have a curve. More than likely one exists somewhere, probably in psi vs. resistance.

    We got the code for the 150psi by doing exactly as I described above.

    Good luck with that. Here's what I got.

    This is what the engineers at Dakota Digital were able to find for me:

    Resistance PSI

    20 16
    75 114
    100 164
    150 280

    Someone probably needs to call them again and see if they ever found more data.

    I see most people with gauges in their cars(Chrysler 300) run like 90-98 psi int the front 100-106 psi in the rear with the 400psi sensors. I only can use this sensor, so are the numbers above all psi or resistance?
