Parker Hannifin: SCP04 SensoControl Pressure Sensor


August 25, 2022

Parker Hannifin recently announced the launch of the new SensoControl SCP04 pressure sensor for hydrogen applications.

With this latest development, Parker is following its strategy of engineering products for new markets and future applications. Hydrogen is more and more frequently used in all kinds of transportation equipment: from trucks to buses to trains and marine. In order to enable the production, transportation, fuelling and storage of hydrogen, new products and solutions are necessary. The SCP04 pressure sensor from Parker has been designed to meet the chemical and physical requirements in the whole hydrogen lifecycle. Here the sensor is especially flexible due to its different threads to match a wide range of system connectors.

The SCP04 offers a high-pressure resistance and, as a digitally calibrated piezoresistive measuring cell, it detects pressures from 4 bar up to 1,000 bar. The special-bonded connection withstands low temperatures, shocks or vibrations, which makes it especially robust for the most demanding environments.

A monolithic design removes the need for internal seals and eliminates leakage due to material fatigue. The SCP04 has no pressure transfer fluid and no large, pressurized areas. It is also vacuum-tight and elastomer-free. The process connections have been designed to be gasket-free to meet the requirements of hydrogen applications.

The SCP04’s robust construction from 316L stainless-steel and low permeability result in a wide media resistance and prevent embrittlement of the metal by ionized hydrogen. Besides that, the sensor offers a high connectivity through high compatibility with different available connectors and can be configured with various output signals.

Siemens: SIMOVAC Non-Arc-Resistant and SIMOVAC-AR Arc-Resistant Motor Controllers

The Siemens SIMOVAC medium-voltage non-arc-resistant and SIMOVAC-AR arc-resistant controllers have a modular design incorporating up to two 12SVC400 (400 A) controllers, housed in a freestanding sheet steel enclosure. Each controller is UL 347 class E2, equipped with three current-limiting fuses, a non-load-break isolating switch, and a fixed-mounted vacuum contactor (plug-in type optional for 12SVC400). The enclosure is designed for front access, allowing the equipment to be located with the rear of the equipment close to a non-combustible wall.
