Moorpark, CA – Kavlico is an operation of Schneider Electric and a global business unit of Custom Sensors & Technologies (CST). At the ConExpo/IFPE show, Kavlico is rolling out their latest family of ceramic capacitive pressure sensors that are perfectly suited for high volume, OEM applications in the construction and agricultural vehicle market sector. The newly designed, cost-effective sensor package is small in size, lightweight (40 grams) and robust enough to offer superior reliability and value for each application.
These rugged devices feature a brass housing and have an accuracy specification of ±1% of full scale including linearity, repeatability and hysteresis over the normal operating temperature range of -30º to +100ºC. These sensors are capable of withstanding the high shock, EMC and vibration environments found in vehicle applications. Available in pressure ranges of 0-15 to 0-500 PSIA, these high performance sensors are powered by a regulated 5.0 Vdc power supply and provide an output proportional to pressure with the customer specific output rails. Overpressure capability is 3x pressure ranges of 0 to 15 through 0 to 300 PSI and 2x pressure for the 0 to 500 PSI range.
Fully temperature compensated, the sensors have excellent EMI/EMC performance and have superior output stability. A wide selection of pressure ports and electrical connector options are available to suit each application specific requirement.
Typical vehicle applications include:
• Crankcase Overpressure
• Engine Oil Pressure
• Automatic Transmission Pressure
