Reciprocating engines Optical sensors
Developments in gas turbine engines, or internal combustions (IC) engines, for marine vessel propulsion have a common requirement for pressure and temperature monitoring in hot, hostile environments; ideal territory for Oxsensis optical sensors. We have two target applications:
- IC engine development test instrumentation and,
- medium speed/slow speed diesel production instrumentation.
Our sensors and signal processing are derived from aerospace and gas turbine instrumentation so many of the challenges for advanced engine R&D instrumentation have been addressed. Oxsensis sensors offer optical multiple measurand capability (dynamic pressure, static pressure and temperature) at high temperatures and pressure, small packaging and zero local electronics.
