    Re: BMP390 water level measurement

    Hi Robin,

    I understand that +/-25cm (not meters) is the accuracy of air pressure equivalent altitude. And that is precisely what I was trying to measure but as I described in my previous post, I am getting a much larger range over a 5 minutes period (around 70cm).
    How can the sensor be used as an altimeter in a drone then?

    Regarding your description of the water level measurement, it suggests that the sensor is measuring hydrostatic pressure. Can this sensor be mounted underwater?

    Hi BorisVian,

    Normally, the test needs to be tested in a standard Lab environment. What is your test environment like?
