Kavlico a global business unit of Custom Sensors & Technologies understands that in today’s economic climate, it is imperative to find opportunities to operate vehicles more efficiently while maintaining a green approach. These two objectives are at the forefront of each and every OEM. Kavlico is sensitive to these requirements and is therefore partnering with agricultural machinery manufacturers as well as other off-highway equipment marketers to develop pressure sensors that boost efficiencies while accurately measuring the pressure of fuel, oil, hydraulics, and transmission fluids.
Kavlico pressure sensors are media compatible with diesel fuel, gasoline, LPG, CNG, as well as many bio-blends.
Typical pressure sensor application for off-highway vehicles include:
- Optimization of pressure across injectors
- High pressure fuel rail for gaseous tank pressure
- Monitoring of transmission fluid pressure to control proper gear selection, maximizing fuel economy
- Monitoring of hydraulic pressure
- Controlling flow & pump pressure
Rugged by design, Kavlico pressure sensors operate on 5 Vdc and provide a linear analog 0.5 to 4.5 Vdc output proportional to pressure. Fully temperature compensated across the full operating temperature these high accuracy devices can be configured to meet each OEM’s application-specific requirement. Brass and stainless steel housing, and a host of electrical and process connector options make Kavlico pressure sensors an ideal fit for high volume programs.
Shock and vibration tolerant, the sensors exhibit excellent EMI/RFI performance, have superior long-term stability and are highly repeatable. The low power consumption pressure sensors are available with various sensing technologies including ceramic capacitive, piezo-resistive (PRT), and thin film (TiON) while featuring a state-of-the-art ASIC.
