Sensors for this system were selected based on the trade-offs between price, accuracy, sensor range, resolution, power consumption, life expectancy and ease of field replacement. Pre-calibrated digital output sensors were selected because they minimize the problems typically associated with a genetic analogue sensor frontend. This sensor class enables the use of field replaceable sensor modules.
