Pressure and temperature monitoring for hydraulic applications

Applications in mobile and stationary hydraulics are among the most demanding in terms of robust and reliable sensor requirements. Trafag pressure transmitters are used in applications from high accuracy test benching to heavy construction and agricultural equipment. They are proven for long term stability in extremely harsh environments from the dusty heat of deserts to the icy cold of sub-arctic forests. The reliable pressure transmitters with great long-term stability are highly prized for stationary hydraulics as well, for they avoid costly production interruptions.

Sensor technology

Key components of Trafag pressure transmitters are pressure sensors based on thin-film-on-steel technology (welded design without O-ring) or thick-film-on-ceramic technology. Both sensor technologies come from Trafag’s own production and were developed in-house together with the ASIC (application-specific microchip). As a result, pressure sensors and electronics work in perfect partnership and achieve a unique level of long-term stability and reliability, even under the most adverse environmental conditions.
