HVACR / Building Equipment

Application

Sensors for HVACR and Building Equipment

TE Connectivity (TE) sensors play a major role in regulating heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration systems. Download our solution guide to learn more about our latest offerings in HVACR.

Our indoor environments are becoming more comfortable and efficient to maintain due to the growth of innovative technologies and sensor networks that regulate heating, ventilation and air conditioning.  Sensors encounter many diverse application needs throughout the HVAC and refrigeration industries. Temperature, humidity and pressure sensors are the most commonly used sensors for HVAC and building equipment applications. Temperature sensors can monitor ambient conditions as well as liquids and gases that are used to heat and cool the environment. Pressure sensors and transducers can operate in the same way to provide efficiency.  Humidity sensors can be integrated into humidification systems or dehumidification systems to increase comfort. In some cases, these sensor types are integrated into the same device.  Our global network of engineers provide full support of application-specific, standard and custom requirements, from product concept through manufacturing. Fast-paced product development time lines are met with rapid prototyping as TE creates solutions for its customers. Leading products include:

  1. Exploring Sensors in HVACR Systems (English)

Sensors are an integral part of most heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, and refrigeration (HVACR) systems — helping to not only maintain a comfortable indoor climate but also to enable the HVACR system to perform properly. Watch this webinar to learn how sensors and HVACR systems are evolving to meet the industry needs for much finer control and improved performance and efficiency.

HVACR Sensors

TE designs and manufactures sensors for vibration, liquid level, position, and fluid property. From motor vibration monitoring, to water flow in boiler systems, the TE portfolio allows integrators to specify various sensor types within one system from a single supplier. As a global designer and manufacturer of sensors and sensor-based systems, TE provides support to HVACR engineers in both the development and instrumentation of HVACR systems. Our sensors are designed and manufactured to exacting specifications, often on a custom basis. Together with our customers, we are working to solve today's biggest application challenges in new and creative ways.
