Series 105, part of ICP miniature dynamic pressure sensors, monitor dynamic combustion pressure in diesel and natural gas powered engines and other reciprocating equipment. They extend maintenance intervals, improve fuel efficiency, and lower NOx emissions. The sensors use piezoelectric sensing elements with quick response times and are best suited for continuous monitoring or periodic walk-around cylinder balancing. They have a 4.2 mm diaphragm and M5 thread, easily mounted internal to the engine.
Frequency response may be customized for use on low- or high-speed engines. The sensors have ranges to 3,600 psi (250 bar), a max pressure of 4,000 psi (300 bar), and temperatures to +570° F (+300° C). They come in stainless steel housings with rugged cables, integral charge amplifiers, and connectors. Intrinsically safe versions are also available for explosive gas atmospheres.
