How to Specify Pressure Sensors for Hydraulic Applications

How to Specify Pressure Sensors for Hydraulic Applications

Hydraulic applications rely on fluid power or the use of pressurized fluids to generate, control and transmit power. These types of systems can produce high power and high forces in small volumes and have long service lives. Fluid power is used in a wide range of industrial applications including self-propelled scissor lifts, injection molding, machine tools, steel making and metal extraction, paper industries, textile machinery, disability lifts and security and parking barriers.
 
Pressure sensors are critical components in these systems, where they are used...
