The regulation of oil pressure in a transmission is critical for minimum fuel consumption with low stress on the mechanism. This is where our OPS, VSP and IPT pressure sensors come into play. The special feature of our sensors is that they are robustly designed to withstand the stresses of oil-pressure applications. Heavy-duty connectors (e. g., bayonet, HDSCS, DT04) and a special design for system integration with particularly high pressure peaks put the finishing touch on the application and fulfil all necessary safety requirements.
Sensor systems for Oil-pressure applications
Oil pressure sensor (OPS)
For oil-pressure measurements in the transmission
Our oil pressure sensor OPS measures the oil pressure in transmissions of e. g. electric vehicles, in order to optimise the use of the engine power. It was designed to measure the absolute pressure inside the transmission housing, and is robust enough to be used with oil in the surrounding areas.
VSP pressure sensor
For oil-pressure applications
As one of our smallest pressure sensors, the VSP is particularly impressive thanks to its robust and submersible design, which makes it a reliable partner for all oil-pressure applications in motor vehicles and commercial vehicles.
IPS pressure sensor
For harsh operating conditions
The IPS pressure sensor is used in applications where high demands are placed on a sensor’s robustness and fluid compatibility. In situations involving harsh operating conditions, rough handling and severe vibrations, the IPS proves to be a reliable partner and provides precise and stable measurements over the entire life cycle.
IPT pressure sensor
For air-pressure regulation
Featuring a robust design, our IPT pressure sensor is used in commercial vehicles, in electronic air-treatment systems with various uses or in power packs for optimised switching processes. It helps to reduce mechanical wear, thus cutting maintenance costs.
Hydrogen propulsion is the future of environmentally friendly commercial vehicles and buses, because hydrogen serves as an energy source for internal-combustion engines or for fuel cells connected to electric drives.
Our climate-pressure sensors are installed in air-conditioning systems for temperature regulation. Climate-control pressure transmitters (CCTs) have been specifically developed for measuring pressure in vehicle refrigerant lines. Thanks to a robust aluminium housing, these sensors offer a cost-effective solution for vehicle air-conditioning systems.
Our intelligent sensor systems are also used in motorsports. Whether exposed to the pressure in the transmission or clutch, or to temperature in the tank – our sensors are robust, measure precisely and put the emphasis on performance!
