KH SERIES SIL2 - A PERFECT PRESSURE MEASUREMENT SOLUTION WITH MOBILE HYDRAULICS APPLICATIONS

The new KH Series with SIL2 certification, from Gefran is a pressure transducer for use on mobile vehicles, utilizing measurement ranges from 0-4 bar to 0-1000 bar.

With many applications in mobile hydraulics, for example earth moving machines, aerial work platforms, cranes, farm machines, and utility vehicles, the common denominator is “reliability and safety.”

Now the news KH Series meets these requirements, due to SIL2 certification (European Functional Safety Standards), made to prevent harm to people. The pressure measurement in mobile vehicle hydraulic circuits is a fundamental metric in ensuring the safety of both operators and vehicles.

Mobile vehicles demand high performing mechanical and electrical systems - the KH Series has innovative features like the ratiometric output and automotive electrical connectors.

Ratiometric output does provide an amplified output signal (0.5 to 4.5 V), and a supply voltage of only 5 V: a huge advantage for systems on mobile vehicles. For wiring, the new KH Series uses automotive electrical connectors: Deutsch DT04-4P 4-pin, AMP Superseal 3-pin, and Packard Metripack 3-pin, for compatibility with industry standards. Also available are the traditional M12x1 and EN 175301-803A (electrovalve), as well as direct output with shielded cable.

A small size, high EMC protection level, process temperature from -40° to +125°C, and ±0.25%FS precision, the KH Series is ideal for mobile hydraulics applications.
