NEW High Temp Transducer Makes Sense for Extreme Conditions

Hydra-Electric is introducing new high temperature pressure sensors offering superior performance and reliability at the 51st International Paris Air Show.

Hydra-Electric New High Temperature Sensors

The new line of transducers can withstand temperatures up to 225°C for pressure sensing and 300°C for temperature sensing.

Hydra-Electric’s patent pending solution for high temperature environments, which incorporates thin film technology, offers significant advantages over competitor offerings which utilize silicon on insulator with oil-filled assembly.

Director of Sensor Engineering at Hydra-Electric, Bob Guziak, says that unlike older sensor technologies, these new high temperature sensors “can survive pressure spikes, avoid failure due to pump ripple, and also withstand a high number of pressure cycles…It’s a sensing solution that won’t break, and helps to avoid pressure spike damage, burst diaphragms and broken wire bonds.”

Hydra-Electric is currently accepting RFIs for its high temperature sensors, which are targeting full EMI spectrum, as well as full lightning spectrum. Like Hydra-Electric’s current offering of transducer products, the newest additions will provide for linear accuracy over the entire spectrum, and also allow the ability to tailor the sensor to any operating parameter (e.g., accuracy, sensitivity, output format, input/output impedance, amplified vs. non-amplified, etc.).
