Jun 19, 2017

HENGELO, the Netherlands and PARIS, June 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sensata Technologies (NYSE:ST), one of the world’s leading suppliers of sensing, electrical protection, control and power management solutions, is making its debut at the Paris- Le Bourget Air Show from June 19 – 23, and will highlight its expanded Aerospace Solutions business which includes aircraft circuit protection, linear variable differential transformers (LVDTs), pressure sensors and more. 

Together with its historic KLIXON and Kavlico brands, Sensata has the combined technical expertise of both businesses. This comprehensive product portfolio enables current and potential customers to consolidate the amount of suppliers needed to bring a product to market ready for their own customers. Sensata’s global Aerospace Solutions team means enhanced customer experiences and dedication to quality standards in any part of the world.

“Customers who have had relationships with our brands in the past will be pleased with the level of expertise and size of the service network now available to them,” said Stuart Parker, General Manager, Aerospace. “Sensata is serious about investing in the future of its aerospace business, starting with its aerospace engine sensor solutions.” 

Sensata will be featuring the following product lines at booth G191: Pressure sensors, position sensors, aircraft circuit protection, switches and other sensors and controls.

1 million LVDTs and counting

Sensata product brand Kavlico LVDTs are the standard for flight and fuel control position measurements, able to withstand temperatures up to 260 degrees Celsius today, and developing product capability up to 535 degrees Celsius for the future. They operate using a non-contacting mutual induction principle, providing friction-free motion and nearly infinite resolution. Used for applications in flight control actuation, engine valve control, landing gear actuation, cockpit controls, and environment control systems, there are over 1 million Sensata brand LVDTs installed in aircrafts worldwide. 

Leading innovation since 1941 

Sensata is in the business of aircraft circuit breakers and has been since it designed and manufactured its first circuit breakers for military aircraft in 1941. Now, with over 1 million circuit breakers sold each year, Sensata is committed to the constant process and design improvements necessary – like the use of 3D printing – to stay on the leading edge of circuit breaker innovation.

The pressure is on

With pressure sensors contributing to over half of its business, Sensata sells more pressure sensors than any other company worldwide. Years of development experience mean that Sensata engineers can develop application-specific products in-house, therefore reducing costs to the customer and ensuring strict adherence to quality and qualification standards. Sensata is pushing the limits for next generation aerospace pressure sensors which will incorporate wireless connectivity, complex electronics and edge computing, as well as higher temperature capability for engine sensing applications.
