Off-Highway Vehicles and Test/Measurement

Demanding applications like off-highway vehicles and test/measurement require durable pressure transducers with overpressure capabilities. Without them, projects can come to a standstill if a single pressure transducer fails.

General Industrial

Industrial spaces include an extensive range of environments. As such, the products used in those spaces are diverse, varying from gauge to compound to vacuum pressure measuring tools. Pressure sensing in industrial applications helps to keep systems working productively. Demanding industrial applications can require customizable solutions for any type of pressure measurement.

The Model AXD is now available!

Now available, the Model AXD is Setra's most versatile pressure transducer yet. Built for high performance applications, the Model AXD features a patented overpressure stop that allows the sensor to recover from overpressure conditions up to 8x the rated range. With a specially designed diaphragm for each pressure range, the Model AXD can measure pressure from 1 PSI to 10,000 PSI full scale. The Model AXD can operate over a wide temperature range from -40 to 125°C.

How Many T/RH Sensors Do I Need in My Space?

Many HVAC, critical environments, and industrial applications employ temperature and relative humidity (T/RH) sensors. But exactly how many T/RH sensors does an application require? It is difficult to spec the exact requirements for certain applications for a variety of reasons. No two applications are identical, and thus no two spaces require the same number of T/RH sensors. As each application is unique, the number of sensors needed depends on several factors, including:

Does Your T/RH Sensor Need a Display?

An important consideration when choosing a T/RH sensor is whether or not it is critical to see the reading on the unit. Whether the sensor is to be wall, duct, or outdoor mounted has an impact on the need for a display, but it is not the deciding factor.

How to protect transducers from electromagnetic and radio-frequency interference

Design engineers have a lot to consider when selecting components for use in end-user products and equipment. Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) that follow a strict Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DFMA) methodology will have few, if any, problems with pressure transducers. However, OEMs that do not adhere to DFMA practices in their factory increase the likelihood of reoccurring issues, including transducer failure.

3 Overlooked Design Considerations When Choosing a Pressure Transducer

When first selecting a pressure transducer for a new project or piece of equipment, designers typically focus on key design parameters such as pressure range, electrical output, media compatibility and environmental conditions.  However, those parameters are not the only ones to consider when making a smart choice for an application. There are three design considerations that are often overlooked when selecting a pressure transducer: transfer medium (oil filled vs. non-oil filled), construction, and type of sensing technology.
