Pressure Measurement in Automotive Applications
Automotive pressure sensors perform many functions. For example, fuel-pressure sensors improve fuel efficiency. Oil-pressure sensors help keep the automobile’s engine safe and long lasting. Pressure sensors for diesel-particulate filters (DPFs) and EVAP systems help to control harmful emissions.
One common factor in automotive applications is harsh media, such as fuel, oil, and fuel vapor. Another important factor is temperature, which can fluctuate between extremely cold and very hot. We know our automotive customers want pressure sensors that have been temperature compensated and packaged to withstand harsh media, and that’s what we provide. Some of our pressure sensors can provide accuracy of ±1.0 % between -40 to 150 °C.
