In the process of tire manufacturing, there are several processes and checks that must be made before a finished tire can roll off the assembly line. In a vulcanizer, hydraulic pressure systems are often utilized in the tire curing process. These systems power multiple sections of the vulcanizer from molding the tire to transferring the tire onto the next step after it is cured.

Given the growing concern about global climate change and ozone layer depletion, ammonia and other natural refrigerants are an attractive choice to replace potent greenhouse gases in refrigeration and cooling systems. However, ammonia’s high corrosiveness and toxicity present significant challenges for system designers and engineers. Even the smallest leaks can endanger workers or a facility. This is why customers need reliable and accurate pressure transducers to play a critical role in maintaining system integrity.

With the lowed cost of sensing technology and improved standardized protocols, the benefit of interfacing sensors with digital communication is finally being realized.  Standardized protocols such as CANbus allow for direct communication between sensors and electronic control units (ECU). These protocols can help improve overall system efficiency and speed by reducing I/O uncertainties, simplify wiring and help to prioritize signals. They also help to define failure mode signals and error checks.
