The AXD: Sturdy Versatility for Specialty Vehicles

March 12, 2020

Challenging applications like off-highway and specialty vehicles require dependable pressure transducers with the ability to survive a potentially extreme range of environmental and performance requirements including high overpressure conditions, wide operating temperature ranges, and wide humidity and moisture situations. Specialty vehicles can include:

  • Firetrucks and pumps
  • Forklifts
  • Armored vehicles
  • Construction vehicles
  • Mining equipment
  • Workboats
  • Forestry machinery

Pressure transducers in specialty vehicles endure harsh physical conditions such as pressure spikes, shock, and vibration. These tough conditions easily damage sensitive devices. Such damage can impede pressure monitoring in hydraulics, load weighing, braking systems, and pneumatic systems, leading to time consuming and expensive issues. For such projects, pressure transducers rated for overpressure provide durability and reliability.

Meet Setra's AXD

Setra's Model AXD has a laser welded construction that protects the transducer against unexpected spikes or in high pulsation applications. The rugged design helps the sensor withstand high shock and vibration. With a non-oil filled design to prevent leaks and contamination of costly equipment, the AXD offers high overpressure protection up to 10X the rating. Optional enhanced thermal compensation provides assurance that the output of the AXD is highly accurate across a wide range of temperatures, and the rugged IP67 design provides reliability throughout many environmental conditions.
