A New Sensor From Piezocryst

23 August 2017

Piezocryst Advanced Sensorics has introduced a new version of the CP501 miniature pressure sensor — the CP521 — for monitoring pressure pulsations at high temperatures and in extreme conditions in compressors, gas turbines or turbochargers.

Designed as a flush-mounted sensor with 10-32 UNF thread, 2-mm hardline cable and high temperature extension cable (932°F (500°C)), the CP521 was optimized for simple installation in demanding environments while keeping the robustness and signal quality of the proven M5-sized sensor CP501.

Capable of 1040°F (560°C) maximum temperature and 932°F (500°C) in permanent use, the sensor features Piezocryst’s GaPO4 sensing elements and Crystal Match technology that enable precise measurements even at high temperature gradients.

Thanks to its excellent signal-to-noise ratio and compact design, the sensor is well-suited for a wide range of applications. Customized and fast-track versions are available.
