This chapter explains the principles of functioning of sensors dedicated to record infrasound data. For various sensor models, the types of infrasound pressure transducers are described, and the performances are given, in terms of self-noise, sensitivity, and passband. The way to calibrate these infrasound sensors and infrasound stations on field is also reported. An in situ calibration method using additional reference sensors to an infrasound station has been developed to recover the overall response of the station element including the wind noise reducing system.
