DataCan’s Piezo Gauges are small, fast, and inexpensive. Called piezo due to the piezoresistive, silicon semi-conductor inside, these gauge measure pressure and temperature as changes in resistivity due to mechanical stress. Hence, a change in pressure or temperature results in a change in resistance. Some people call these tools “sapphire” or “strain” gauges.

Piezo is small - The silicon sensor in the piezo gauge is small making it able to respond quickly to change in pressure and temperature. This also makes the piezo gauge suitable for gradients.

Piezo is fast - We have piezo circuits which can sample up to 32,000 times per second. Perforating events can be captured with a high data acquisition rate.

Piezo is less expensive - Less than half the price of a quartz pressure gauge

*Battery estimations were made assuming a quartz gauge with an 177°C memory module, sampling at 30 frames per second, fitted with a 165°C extended lithium battery option with a well temperature at 250°F.
