12As far as I have been able to determine, the labels “D/P” and “DP cell” were originally trademarks of the Foxboro Company. Those particular transmitter models became so popular that the term “DP cell” came to be applied to nearly all makes and models of differential pressure transmitter, much like the trademark “Vise-Grip” is often used to describe any self-locking pliers, or “Band-Aid” is often used to describe any form of self-adhesive bandage.
