The operating principles, as well as the technical aspects of the implementation of a new computer-controlled pressure standard are presented. The instrument can have dual use: either as a pressure source or as a pressure sensor. The device is intended mostly for use in problems where small differential pressures are of interest, i. e., 0–2.5 KPa and high accuracy is desired. Such a pressure range encompasses, for example, most of the pressure measurement applications in subsonic wind-tunnel testing. The device interfaces to a PC and is ideal for fully-automated pressure transducer calibration applications. The accuracy of the pressures produced or measured by the device is 0.08 percent F. S. (Full Scale).
