Fluid Property Sensors
TE’s portfolio of intelligent, efficient, and high-performing sensor solutions features fluid property sensors. Our products are specifically designed to provide fluid quality and condition monitoring capabilities.
Engineered to operate under a wide array of pressure, flow, and temperature conditions. We offer distinct technologies to measure fluids. Our tuning fork technology is coupled with efficient software algorithms for accurate measurement of viscosity, density and dielectric constant. Dedicated applications include oils (engine, hydraulic, transmission), fuels, fluid monitoring, and others. Our urea quality sensors, based on Near Infra-Red (NIR) technology or ultrasonic measurement perform an analysis of the Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) fluid to provide urea concentration and secure misfilling protection to the Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems. Our highly reliable reed switch technology is combined with temperature measurement for level sensing. Robust design enables fluid property sensors to operate under diverse pressure, flow and temperature conditions to bring real-time fluid monitoring to engines, fuel systems, SCR systems, compressors, transmissions, gear boxes and many other industrial applications. Our new water-in-oil measurement sensor supplements the existing fluid quality range of products.
TE's Marcus Schulte describes how we work with our customers to help limit vehicle emissions. One example is a sensor we created to measure the quality and concentration of urea in systems that reduce the amount of greenhouse gases created by diesel engines.
