Pressure sensor accuracy

Write down the potential issues with the following pressure sensor selection

You have a 300 bar maximum pressure transmitter and need to check a 30bar working pressure. It is important to consider what the reading error might be while testing?

Discuss what these factors might be important. Consider:

What the full scale error is in bar (or psi), how the reading changes with temperature, age of the sensor, ambient pressure level, supply voltage stability, mounting position or assembly forces, vibrations, contamination or damage.
