a device that translates one physical quantity to another, e.g., pressure or temperature, to an electrical signal.
neuroendocrine transducer a neuron, such as a neurohypophyseal neuron, that on stimulation secretes a hormone, thereby translating neural information into hormonal information.
pressure transducer an electronic device that converts pressure (such as blood pressure) into electrical signals that can be recorded graphically and monitored.

RAY: And if a new pressure sensor -- or pressure sensors -- makes the light go off, then it was pretty obvious that he's responsible, and you're all set.
The OTR tire pressure sensor includes a patent-pending, seal design with a built-in filter to protect internal sensor components from rim conditioners and other liquids present in most OTR tires.
These can traceably characterise the amplitude and frequency response of pressure sensors up to high frequencies, by exposing them to extremely fast pressure steps of up to 1.
Ho says the slim-type pressure sensor is an important element for a variety of medical devices due to having large measurement area, being light, slim, flexible, custom shapeable, and energy-efficient.
