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.

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.

Advancements in technology have created a need for enhanced pressure sensing technology, the next generation of pressure transducers. To meet this new demand, we designed the Model AXD, the updated and improved version of the Model 209. The Model AXD is built leveraging the strength of the 209's variable capacitance sensor paired with a new electronics platform. With enhanced performance through digital signal conditioning and a rugged, laser-welded construction, the Model AXD has the reliability and accuracy necessary for industrial and OEM applications.

Heavy-duty equipment for both indoor and outdoor applications typically requires measuring water or liquid pressure to some degree. This equipment endures harsh conditions and a wide range of temperatures which can lead to water freezing inside pressure transducers, particularly when equipment is idle. Common applications where this occurs are:
