Kavlico offers a combined pressure and temperature sensor for use with the natural refrigerant R744 (C02) in mobile air conditioning systems. The sensor meets the company’s green initiative by replacing ozone depleting or global warming refrigerants with R744 to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions. The rugged sensor features a hermetically sealed stainless housing, operating pressure range of 0 to150 bar (0 to 2175 psi), and operating process media temperature range of -40 to +180ºC (-40 to +356ºF). It can be specified with either an analog, SPI, LIN2.0, or CAN bus output and tolerates high vibration environments. A metal-injection-molded design decreases package size and improves installation. The sensor does not use an external probe for measuring temperature, and its sense element is based on the company’s TiON (Titanium OxyNitride) thin film technology, capable of withstanding high media temperatures.
