Wind Tunnel and Flight Test Pressure Transducers

These transducers are ideal for the flight test environment. The core technology is a patented piezoresistive silicon-on-insulator miniature sensing element. These transducers have found wide acceptance in aerospace applications, for wind tunnel, flight test and acoustic measurements with decades of use on many important flight test programs. Kulite has established the industry standard of excellence for dynamic pressure measurement. The extremely small size of these devices has made them uniquely suited to a large variety of test and production applications in industry and research and development.


High Temperature Line of Pressure Transducers
with High Temperature SOI Electronics

These transducers are ideally suited for: internal combustion engine measurements (in-cylinder pressure, exhaust, etc.); oil, gas and geo-thermal explorations and drilling; gas turbines; aircraft engines: test, monitoring and control and the automotive industry. The unique piezoresistive SOI sensor coupled with high temperature SOI electronics in the lightweight package concept is the ideal product of choice for the engineer looking to: 1) perform measurement in high temperature, harsh environments, 2) obtain high level output, 3) reduce weight, 4) increase reliability, 5) achieve high accuracy, while meeting cost objectives.


Aircraft Pressure Transducers

These transducers are found in the Commercial, General Aviation, Military, Commuter/RJ and Rotorcraft Industries. The unique piezoresistive sensor coupled with the lightweight package concept is the ideal product choice for the aircraft engineer looking to reduce weight, increase reliability and fulfill the need for higher accuracy while meeting cost objectives. Typical applications include: Auxiliary Power Unit, Hydraulic Pressure Transducers High Pressure Sealed Gage and Absolute, Propulsion/Engine, Environmental Control System, Electronic Pressure Switches and Combination/Duplex. Custom engineered Special Products illustrating the versatility of the Kulite Product for Pressure - Load or Mass measurements in an aircraft environment are also featured.


Automotive Pressure Sensors

These sensors can be found in the automotive test lab, at the proving grounds, on the racetrack and even the public highway. They are used to monitor aerodynamics, air bag systems, airspeed, brake pressure/antilock brake system testing, coolant pressure, dynamometer, engine oil pressure, exhaust system testing, fuel pressure, hydraulics system, in cylinder pressure measurement, intake manifold, oil pressure and temperature, steering system pressure and transmission testing. They have been adapted to measure forces and structural vibration.


Gas Turbine Engine Sensors

These sensors are supplied to the aircraft engine industry, providing sensor solutions for laboratory research, engine development testing, flight quality engine measurements and various Turbine Engine measurements for Commercial, Military and Power Generation applications. Typical applications include: Propulsion/Engine, Auxiliary Power Units, Power Generation Turbines, Turbine Test/Development, Combination/Multi-Function/Redundant and Technology/Research.


Marine Pressure Transducers

These transducers are ideal for shipboard, downhole, subsea and general military and commercial marine applications. The core technology is a patented piezoresistive silicon-on-insulator sensing element with decades of reliable use on mission critical systems on aerospace and naval programs. All welded construction provides a hermetic seal to eliminate the effects of moisture, salt, dust and other environmental contaminants. Construction is commonly 316 stainless steel, Inconel or Hastelloy for optimum corrosion resistance and long term reliability in a seawater environment.


Miniature IS Silicon Diaphragm Pressure Transducers

These transducers have found wide acceptance in aerospace, for wind tunnel, flight test and acoustic measurements. They have established the industry standard of excellence for dynamic pressure measurements. The small size of these devices has made them uniquely suited to a large variety of test and production applications in industry, research and development.


Precision Pressure Transducers and Transmitters

These transducers are designed and produced for applications that require high performance, accuracy and reliability. They are specifically packaged to perform in severe environment pressure measurement situations.



Aircraft Pressure Transducers

These are the wide range of Kulite Solid State Pressure Transducers used in numerous aircraft applications that require high performance and reliability. All Kulite Aircraft Transducers have evolved from four decades of having pioneered the development of miniature static and dynamic pressure measurement devices.


OEM Pressure Transducers

Solid State low cost pressure sensors available in mounted chip form to complete transducer assemblies.


Strain Gages

The semiconductor strain gage may be thought of as a strain sensitive resistor. Generally cemented to a stressed member, its resistance changes as a function of applied strain. This characteristic makes it useful in the field of stress analysis, physical measurements and testing and transducer manufacture. Similar to conventional metallic wire and foil gages, Kulite Semiconductor Gages offer the significant advantages of: higher sensitivity, smaller sizes, higher resistance, higher fatigue life and low hysteresis.
