IPS pressure sensor

For harsh operating conditions

The IPS pressure sensor is used in applications where high demands are placed on the robustness and fluid compatibility of a sensor. Under harsh operating conditions, with rough handling and severe vibrations, the IPS proves to be a reliable solution, delivering precise and stable measurements over the entire life cycle.

Made of stainless steel, the pressure sensor elements and pressure connections are designed for absolute and relative pressures up to 600 bar and are ideally suited for use in oil, fuel, diesel, H2, CNG and LPG applications.

The flexible design of the sensor with numerous electrical connections and output signals also permits custom adaptation to the respective system.
