TE Connectivity announces that several models of its pressure sensors have received DNV GL type approval to complement its established ABS certification in addressing marine and offshore applications. Proof of high quality and safety standards, DNV GL approval confirms that TE Connectivity pressure sensors are compliant to their manufacturing rules with suitable facilities for product manufacturing, testing and inspection; methods for constant monitoring of product quality; and qualified manufacturing personnel.
ABS and DNV GL approved pressure sensors offer distinct advantages and applications for ships, barges, offshore oil platforms and desalination. Pressure transducers are approved for gauge, absolute and differential pressure measurement applications in hazardous and non-hazardous environments. Sensors can be constructed with materials including 316L stainless steel and nickel alloys; flush diaphragms are available.
