Sensata Technologies plans to introduce a suite of new temperature, pressure and position sensors for aircraft engine applications, including a military-spec sensor (pictured above) that measures the temperature aircraft gearbox oil at the 2019 Paris Airshow.

At the show, Sensata plans to introduce a new sensor that provides accurate temperature measurement of aircraft gearbox oil, which indicates to the pilot potential issues with continued operation of the engine. Qualified to military specifications, this new product features a hermetically sealed tip, fast response time, and can also be used to measure the temperature of fuel or low-pressure hydraulic fluids.

A recently added silicon-on-insulator (SOI) sensor technology further expands Sensata’s pressure sensing portfolio to address high temperature performance required in aircraft engine applications.  

“Sensata Aerospace is excited to be part of the Le Bourget event this year and introduce our expanded sensing portfolio that includes new position, pressure and temperature offerings,” said Stuart Parker, General Manager, Aerospace. “We are able to leverage a century of engineering excellence, spanning multiple markets and applications to provide solutions specifically tailored for the most demanding applications.” 

Together with its historic KLIXON® and Kavlico brands, Sensata’s combined technical expertise and comprehensive product portfolio enables current and potential customers to consolidate the number of suppliers needed to bring their products to market.
