Patriot Sensors & Controls introduced its new KT Series pressure transmitter that integrates Silicon-On-Sapphire sensing technology for high temperature capability. The sensor's 4-20 mA output is said to be advantageous for transmission over long distances ... A new division of Lucas Control Systems, Genesis Sensors, is attempting to revolutionize the pressure sensing market. The company's Titan pressure sensor is media-isolated and incorporates a custom ASIC. A modular design allows custom prototypes to be shipped in two weeks.
