XKP pressure sensor

For motorsport applications

Our numerous motorsport customers aren’t the only ones who are impressed by the XKP pressure sensor when it comes to vibration resistance and excellent compatibility with engine and transmission oils.

Its various design versions with two different connection sizes and a variety of electrical connections also make the XKP the ideal pressure sensor for automotive and motorsport applications.

Thanks to its reliable and accurate measurements, the XKP is also ideally suited for use in mobile test benches. The pressure sensor naturally also meets the EMC and ESD requirements typical in the automotive industry.
