Sensors measure dynamic pressures in reciprocating equipment

PCB Piezotronics Limitedvisit website


PCB Piezotronics is introducing the series 105, a new range of ICP miniature dynamic pressure sensors, suitable for monitoring dynamic combustion pressure in diesel and natural gas-powered engines, and other reciprocating equipment. Proper monitoring allows for extended maintenance intervals, improved fuel efficiency and lower NOx emissions. The sensors feature piezoelectric sensing elements with very fast response times, and are well suited to continuous monitoring or periodic walk-around cylinder balancing. Additionally, the Series 105 features a 4.2mm diaphragm and M5 thread, for mounting internally to engines.

With no moving parts and solid-state construction, their durability is claimed to be unsurpassed by any other type of pressure sensor. Frequency response may be tailored for use on low- or high-speed engines. Series 105 pressure sensors have ranges to 3600psi (250bar) and a maximum pressure of 4000psi (300bar). Suitable for use in high temperatures of up to +570degF (+300degC), the sensors are packaged in stainless steel housings, with rugged cables, integral charge amplifiers and connectors. Intrinsically safe versions are also available for explosive gas atmospheres.
