Here's's primer on pressure transducers

A critical issue to be aware of is pressure transducers and sudden impact loads or water hammer.  This link takes you to another resource on the net dealing with this issue.  For rocket motor testing the issue of water hammer is critical since a rapid increase in pressure can damage your transducer.  Connecting the transducer to the motor via a length of tubing filled with grease will act as a snubber of sorts and help protect your transducer from damage.
