Transducer Advances Affordable Pressure Monitoring 
The Ashcroft T2 effectively combines economy, performance and durability into a compact, state-of-the-art pressure transducer. With a static accuracy of ±0.25%FS @ 21ºC, modern digital temperature compensation ensures a Total Error Band better than ±1% between –20ºC and +85ºC. An advanced sensor and electronics equip the T2 for maximum stability and long life in the presence of overpressure, shock, vibration, and extreme pressure cycling.
High Temperature Resistance Make Linear Position Sensors Ideal for Valve Positioning Applications 
Built for extraordinary reliability and resistance to high temperatures, Macro Sensors’ HSTAR 750 Series Hermetically Sealed Position Sensors offer a highly accurate and long life solution for the position measurement of steam control valves in power generation plants. Constructed of stainless steel, these ¾” (19 mm) diameter AC-operated position sensors operate in environments with high temperatures (400°F).
