Bar30/Bar02 depth calculation question

Hello everyone, I am having an issue or I don’t know if it is an issue, I am using a Bar30/Bar02 sensor in a Raspberry Pi, All measurements look good but depth is giving me -1.24 m with a pressure of 891.67mbar. I am testing the sensor outside of water maybe that is why but I wanted to see if that is correct.

Thank you!

Hi @jalonso9, welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

Typical sea level pressure is ~1013.25mbar, which is what our sensor libraries use as the default pressure reference, so if your sensor is measuring less than that then the depth estimate is indeed expected to be negative.
