TE Connectivity, a world leader in connectivity and sensors, has responded to the need for reliable sensors that improve operational efficiency in hydraulic machinery by developing the M9100 pressure transducer. Based on TE’s proven Microfused strain gauge technology, the M9100 can operate in extreme conditions at pressures up to 700 bar.
“In harsh environments where high levels of vibration and high temperatures are present, there is a need for dependable pressure sensors,” said Todd Eckhardt, global product manager at TE. “TE’s M9100 reliable performance increases operational efficiency and helps prevent downtime and failure, providing customers with a durable sensor solution.”
With its simple and innovative snubber design, M9100 pressure transducer is available with standard configurations, provides durability against pressure spikes and is less prone to errors and maintenance. The robust package allows for reliable sensor operation while submerged in water.
The M9100 pressure transducer has an excellent EMI/EMC performance, according to ISO 11552. It can withstand nearby electrical noise and be installed next to EMI emitting components. Furthermore, a high level of electrical protection to the power supply makes the M9100 pressure transducer more robust to poor power supply control and reduces the risk of system issues.
Finally, with a 27 mm hex and considerably compact height (down to 50 mm), the M9100 pressure transducer is fitted for large, durable connection systems like TE’s DEUTSCH DT connector series.
