Kavlico Introduces Multi-Purpose High Performance OEM Pressure Sensor

Moorpark, CA-Kavlico, a global business unit of Custom Sensors & Technologies (CST) is pleased to announce the availability of their 4th generation ceramic capacitive pressure sensor, the model P500 which is packaged with Kavlico's state-of-the-art ASIC. Rugged and highly reliable, this multi-purpose sensor is ideal for measuring a broad range of process media including hydrocarbon based fluids, air, and water.

Typical industrial pressure sensor applications include:
  • Pumps (Water Pressure)
  • Suction and Discharge Pressure in Stationary and Portable Compressors
  • Process Controls (Fluid & Gas Pressures)
  • Scientific Instruments (Spectrometers and Chromatography Analysis Equipment)
  • Test Equipment
  • Stem Sterilizers
  • Air Pressure

    Typical transportation applications include:
  • Oil & Fuel Pressure
  • Coolant Pressure
  • Agricultural Equipment
  • CNG & Natural Gas Engines

    The extremely compact sensor (less than 50 grams in weight and <1.6" in length) can be packaged in brass, stainless steel or carbon plated steel dependent upon pressure range and measurement requirement. Standard pressure ranges are available from 0 - 15 through 0 - 750 PSI and 0-1 through 0-40 Bar, absolute or sealed gage.

    Other significant features include outstanding shock and vibration performance, low power consumption, high over pressure protection, excellent EMI/RFI, and ESD protection, and a temperature compensated linear amplified output of 0.5 to 4.5 Vdc. Operating temperature is -40 to +125°C when using a fluorsilicone o-ring.

    Standard packaging includes a built-in Metri-Pack 150 Series electrical connector although other options may be specified while the process connection may be specified with a variety of popular thread options. The Model P500 is RoHS compliant and carries CE Mark certification and is IP65 rated.
