The success of electromobility is an essential module on the way to an energy supply from renewable sources. Economic success requires efficient use of the cost-intensive battery capacity in all areas of electric vehicles. For vehicle and battery temperature control, this is achieved with heat pump systems. Precise knowledge of the system pressure and system temperature is necessary for their efficient operation.

This is where our CCT sensors come in. They record both pressure and temperature in a single sensor, have been specially developed for use in heat pumps and are particularly robust and cost-effective thanks to their aluminum housing. Our sensors meet the specifications requested in the automotive industry with regard to environmental requirements, electromagnetic compatibility and electrostatic discharge (ESD) and are therefore a reliable and safe solution for electromobility.

Sensor systems for E-mobility

CCT pressure/temperature sensor

For air-conditioning systems with heat pumps

The CCT pressure temperature sensor is often used in heat pumps for climate control systems and in thermal management (battery), particularly in vehicles with alternative drives. The specially developed thermo receptors permit a fast response time in flowing media and guarantee the high accuracy of the temperature measurings.
