Kavlico released a line of liquefied petroleum gas and compressed natural gas pressure sensors to support vehicles and industrial equipment using alternative fuels, which are being widely accepted as an option for cars, buses, trucks, and forklifts. Sensor applications include monitoring and measuring low pressure for fuel rail, high pressure for tank pressure, or combined pressure and temperature to improve fuel metering, emissions, and engine performance and to control combustion. The robust, stainless steel sensors use a thin film sense element and are available in pressure ranges up to 250 bar (3626 psi). They operate on 5-V dc with a temperature range of -40 to +140°C (-40 to +284°F). The lightweight sensors can be configured with a variety of electrical and process connections to meet specific application requirements.
