The AXD: Adaptability for Alternative Fuels

Many alternative fuels depend on precise measurements for gage, absolute, or compound pressure. Transducers in some of these applications endure potentially corrosive environments. To keep up with the demands of renewable energy applications, adaptable capacitive sensing technology can measure a variety of pressure types. Alternative fuel applications for the AXD and AXDH sensors are varied and include compression, storage and dispensing systems, hydrogen generators, and hydrogen fuel cell systems used to produce electricity.

The AXD: Rugged Accuracy for Rail Applications

Railways are essential for countries to function. These systems with massive machines  can transport almost anything and require immense engines to successfully make their trips. Mechanical failures in locomotives can lead to costly delays and potentially dangerous and damaging situations. The control system helps prevent this issue by monitoring and measuring fluid levels to guarantee the engine and related mechanical systems can operate properly. Pressure transducers play a critical role in ensuring all systems operate efficiently and safely.

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.
