Does anyone know who makes the pressure transducers in dive computers?

    That's far lower than tank pressure.

    Thanks. I think I found something on Digikey that is the right pressure and threaded correctly, its a bit bigger and a bit more expensive then I was hoping but oh well. The ones you recommended me, would you know how to mount them, I see no clear way to?

    I'm not sure exactly what application you're using it for, so it's hard to say. The ones I listed are available in a couple different thread options, I'd assume mounting them to a high pressure fitting is a pretty secure way to attach them. The electrical connection isn't suitable for physically supporting the transducer.

    This is the only transducer that I could find that was high enough pressure and 7/16" unf threaded for a "reasonable" price. My only concern with it is that it is vented gauge pressure, but I don't think that will be too much of an issue, its also bigger and bulkier then I would like but its the only one I have found.

    I'm setting up a "conversation" with you- I have some of these parts that- if you could use them- I'd be happy to just send to you, these are a handful of sensors not used in prototypes from many years ago. Packaged Version of ME657
