SENSORS: Kavlico’s newly released combined pressure & temperature sensor is for use with the natural refrigerant R744 (C02) for pressure and temperature sensing in mobile air conditioning systems. This rugged, low-cost sensor has a 17-4 PH hermetically sealed, stainless housing. The sense element is based upon Kavlico’s patented TiON (Titanium OxyNitride) thin film technology which is capable of withstanding high media temperatures. The sensor’s high operating pressure range of 0 to150 Bar with a proof pressure of 210 Bar and a burst pressure of 320 Bar is well-suited for this demanding application. The operating process media temperature range is -40 to 180C, while the ambient operating temperature is -40 to 135C. Highly stable and accurate, the sensor can be specified with either an analog, SPI, LIN2.0 or CANbus output. The sensor tolerates high vibration environments and has built-in reverse polarity protection, as well as over-voltage protection.
Most machine design engineers will survey existing component manufacturers for standard linear guide products, limiting what they can do with their designs. Using extruded aluminum profile guides can customize machine designs while shrinking the bill of materials.
Weaned on the relatively effortless connectivity of today’s massive variety of consumer electronic products, automation users in the IIoT will likely not tolerate too many competing, piecemeal standards for long. And the Industrial Internet Consortium is trying to preempt history.
