If you are an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) looking to optimize cost and streamline installation processes, you’ll want to learn more about ratiometric (RM) output pressure transducers. These highly efficient and cost-effective solutions are engineered to accommodate a wide range of applications, such as off-highway vehicles (OHV), motorsports, and mobile hydraulic systems. I recently published a blog that reviewed three key factors to consider when selecting an OEM pressure transducer: reliability, durability, and repeatability. Ratiometric output transducers incorporate all three factors and more. In this article, you will learn how these pressure measurement instruments can help you achieve cost savings while ensuring seamless integration and enhanced performance in demanding environments.

Pressure transducers are used to measure pressure levels in some of society’s most critical OEM applications, from mobile hydraulics to pump monitoring to railroad pneumatics, performance racing, and more. Without an efficient, accurate pressure transducer, it’s impossible for manufacturing processes to run smoothly and predictably. In the worst cases, uncontrolled or unmonitored pressure levels can put operators and equipment at risk. Ashcroft has many years of experience designing pressure instruments for a variety of settings. We believe the key factors to consider when selecting an OEM pressure transducer are reliability, durability, and repeatability. In this article, we’ll review these features in a little more depth, discuss some of the most common applications for these devices, and compare the specific options Ashcroft offers, including the G2 and the S1 models. When you are finished reading, you will have a solid understanding of what to look for when selecting a pressure transducer for your application, the similarities and differences between these two models and be ready to make a decision about which is best for you. .

Your pressure sensor is a vital component of your equipment or system. When properly specified your system will operate safely and to expected performance levels over the design life of the system or equipment, but only if you have the right sensor that’s appropriate for your application. The wrong pressure sensor can result in equipment damage, worker injury or out-of-specification measurements. So, how can you ensure you choose the right one?
