Kavlico Pressure Sensor Ideal for a Wide Variety of Industrial Applications
Moorpark, CA-Kavlico, a global business unit of Custom Sensors & Technologies (CST) has designed a robust pressure sensor; the model P265, which utilizes a ceramic capacitive sense element that can withstand exposure to a wide array of compatible liquid and gaseous media. Housed in a 316 stainless steel package, the sensor is excited by 5Vdc and provides a linear amplified output of 0.5 to 4.5 Vdc that is proportional to pressure.
Specifically designed for pressure measurements of 0-15 through 0-1,000 PSIA/PSIG, the P265 has low power consumption, superior long-term stability, and excellent repeatability and hysteresis. Other significant features include over-voltage, reverse polarity, and short circuit protection. The P265 has an operating temperature range of -40° to +125°C.
The excellent shock and vibration tolerance of the P265 makes it an ideal fit for applications such as:
o Steam sterilizers
o Natural gas pressure
o CNG and propane engines
o Marine and agricultural chemical equipment
o Refrigeration and HVAC systems
o Hydraulic systems
o Diesel & gasoline engine pressures
o Coolant pressure
o Industrial compressors
o Other harsh environment industrial applications
The P265 pressure sensor is available in many standard off-the-shelf configurations or it can be adapted to fit unique OEM application specific requirements. A wide selection of pressure ports and electrical connectors may be chosen to fit the measurement criteria.
