Measurements in R&D fundamentally differ from those for serial applications. Boundary conditions like temperature, mounting environment, mechanical stress or heat flux are not fully evaluated. Furthermore testing time is usually limited and the measurement position new, so there is no or only few data for comparison. This complex situation demands sensors which deliver a reliable signal which is not influenced by other physical quantities.
The P-series is designed for monitoring dynamic pressure and quasi-static pressure up to 350 bar and features a high accuracy which makes the sensors also suitable for precise thermodynamic analyses. The sensors’ patented sensing element, with Crystal Match™ technology, enables exceptional signal qualities over the entire temperature range. The Double Shell™ design gives high mechanical isolation from influences of the mounting bore and decouples the piezoelectric elements from negative influences of mechanical stress.
