Kavlico Pressure Sensors: Market Launch of the low pressure sensor – “P1A” 

Kavlico Pressure Sensors is launching the low pressure sensor “P1A”, based on Kavlico’s Ceramic Capacitive technology. Featuring a highly modular design and a wide range of options, the P1A has been specifically developed to address the broadest spectrum of general industrial applications.
Covering pressure ranges from vacuum to 16 bar with gauge and absolute references, the P1A’s ceramic capacitive technology trumps other technologies commonly used for low-pressure ranges (such as Ceramic Thick Film or Piezo-resistive Oil Filled) on all counts, notably bringing long-term stability and accuracy along with high overpressure capability.

​Extended Modularity

The modular design of the P1A incorporates:
  • Various analog electrical outputs
  • Digital outputs on request
  • A wide selection of standard pressure ports
  • The option of customized pressure ports
  • Several electrical connector varieties and customized over molded cable available
  • Internal seals to match the specific media and temperature application
This modularity and range of options offered by the thousands of part numbers in the P1A family, makes the advantages of Ceramic Capacitive technology in low-pressure sensing now available to the broadest spectrum of industrial applications. Besides the multiple standard configurations available, customized adaptations can also be considered.

Typical application areas:
  • Industrial machines
  • Waste and Water Management
  • Medical equipment
  • Industrial OEM applications
  • Pneumatic or vacuum-activated machines


With the introduction of this new pressure transmitter, Kavlico is supplementing its successfully established PTE5000 and P500 product families. The PTE5000 family is based on the Thin Film technology measuring mid and higher pressure ranges from 6 to 3000 bar and is designed for multiple industrial applications.
"The expansion of the portfolio supports our strategy to expand our business with customers outside the automotive industry and grow in industrial markets such as medical equipment handling of medical gases, but also in the air distribution in building management. With the P1A and P500 we are now able to supply our customers with high-quality and flexible solutions for various pressures ranges – all from a single source," says Horst Obermeier, Managing Director of Kavlico GmbH and Vice President Pressure Sensors.


Kavlico Pressure Sensors will be presenting the P1A at the Sensor+Test Halle 12, Stand 446.
