CCT high-pressure/temperature sensor

For air-conditioning systems with CO2 heat pump

The CCT high-pressure temperature sensor was specially developed for the high pressures and temperatures in CO2 heat pumps (R744). Such heat pumps are primarily used in thermal management in vehicles with electric drive (EV). Thanks to its robust stainless steel design, the sensor withstands the high pressures and temperatures in this application.

A digital single-wire interface (LIN) ensures reliable transmission of the pressure and temperature readings. The stainless steel pressure measuring element and the specially developed additional correction function for the temperature readings enable high measuring accuracy for pressure and temperature.
