New to sensors, not sure how to power them

I’m working on a design project and need to power 4 different sensors (torque, temperature, pressure and flow rate). I’m new to this and not sure where to start. 3 of them have a minimum excitation voltage of 5 VDC. The pressure sensor has a minimum of 9V. What would be easiest way to go about wiring and powering them. Thanks!

What is the maximum supply voltages the sensors can take?
For example, if the 5Vdc sensor can operate from 9Vdc then you could use 9Vdc for everything.

It might also depend on the environment. Industrial is typically 24 vdc, If the output is current as in 4-20. 0-10 vdc is common as well.

This would go much, much better with part numbers and links to the sensors data sheets. Depending on the exact sensors used often the excitation voltage needs to be extremely stable for the sensor to provide a stable accurate output.
