PCB Piezotronics introduced a series of dynamic pressure sensors for monitoring dynamic combustion pressure in diesel and natural gas powered engines and other reciprocating equipment. Proper monitoring of engines and machinery using these sensors allows for extended maintenance intervals, improved fuel efficiency and low NOx emissions. Sensors feature piezoelectric sensing elements with fast response times, and are suited for continuous monitoring or periodic walk-around cylinder balancing. Intrinsically safe versions are available for explosive gas atmospheres. The sensors have solid-state construction and no movintg parts. Frequency response may be adjusted for use during engine load changes on low- or high-speed engines. These sensors have measurement ranges up to 3,600 psi (250 bar) and maximum pressure of up to 4,000 psi (300 bar). They are suited for use in high temperatures up to 570°F (300°C), and are packaged in stainless steel housings with rugged cables and connectors.
