I wondered how you can measure (static) pressure, with an as high as possible accuracy. Could you share your experience about which sensor and setup you allready used?

I would like to measure the static pressure before and after a fan with an accuracy of 10[Pa]. Do you think this is possible?

Do you mean 1 part in 10,000 of atmospheric pressure? Why the precision?

If you are trying to measure the DP across the fan you might manage it with an inclined manometer.

Best pressure measurement

Yes I mean 1/10000 of atmospheric pressure, the accuracy is needed to determine the flow from a fan curve.

I can't imagine why you need that much precision for a fan curve, but a mid-level digital manometer can do it:
