The Cost of a Failed Sensor

Many industrial applications rely on pressure transducers to efficiently and safely operate and maintain equipment. If a pressure sensor fails, it can cause the entire control system to fail and lead to inoperable equipment or system down time; depending on the type of system, significant damage can occur to the equipment and surrounding environment. For systems experiencing periodic pressure spikes, damage due to a failed pressure sensor can often be prevented if the sensor selection processes considers overpressure resilience.
