Kavlico is launching the PTE5000 family of modular sensors designed for industrial applications. Kavlico’s PTE5000 offers a competitive height advantage ((20 mm, depending on the connector type), a low weight and a hermetically sealed design. The compact design incorporates Kavlico’s Thin Film strain gauge technology, with a welded, sealed sense element in a stainless steel housing (AISI304). Due to the hermetically sealed, welded design the sense element is impervious to almost any media, without the use of an internal seal. These sensors are specifically designed to be used in environments that see aggressive media.
The modular sensors are offered for a variety of standard pressure ranges from 0-6 bar to 0-600 bar. Higher pressure ranges are also available on request. The product range includes a number of current connector types for industrial applications (see picture) and various custom versions adapted to specific requirements.
The PTE5000 sensors compact design as well as low overall weight is ideal for applications with spacing and weight limitations. The robust design ensures high repeatability and long term stability. The sensors are designed for a wide range of liquid and gaseous media and a wide temperature range from -30° C to +100°C (media to 120°C). Typical applications are in the hydraulic sector of machine and vehicle manufacturing, particularly in construction and agricultural machinery, as well as in building equipment.
