OPS pressure sensor

For oil-pressure measurements in the transmission

Our OPS pressure sensor with functional safety according to ASIL B and SENT output signal measures safely, precisely and quickly. It regulates the oil pressure in transmissions of electric vehicles in order to optimise the utilisation of engine power and to achieve different degrees of hybridisation. The pressure sensor can also be used for other fluids, such as air or refrigerant.
