    Trafag revolutionises the measuring of highly dynamic pressure curves

    Trafag has succeeded in unifying the highly dynamic response behavior of a test bench sensor and the extreme robustness of a mobile hydraulic pressure transmitter by combining thin-film-on-steel measuring cells and an ASIC developed in-house. The Trafag ASIC TX with an innovative parallel mixed-signal structure is the key to a response behaviour at nearly unlimited speed.

  4. How to assess the corrosion resistance

    Trafag Salt spray test chamber

    There are two major criteria to assess the corrosion resistance against salt water of a stainless steel based on material specifications: PREN Pitting Resistance Equivalent Number and CPT Critical Pitting Temperature, both depending on the contents of the material. For practical tests, a good and reliable indication is the salt mist test according IEC 60068-2-52:1996.
