Sensata to Focus on Trucking and Industrial Equipment Markets

August 25, 2006

The sensors and controls provider brings proven technologies for industrial hydraulics and pneumatics, air suspension, tire pressure and inflation, braking, engine diagnostics, and emissions systems.

NASHVILLE, TN /PRNewswire/ -- With the heavy-duty truck and equipment market demanding better performance, reliability, and safety, manufacturers are turning to advanced electronics and controls to meet these goals. Sensata Technologies, formerly the sensors and controls division of Texas Instruments, is announcing a dedicated focus in this market, bringing proven sensor technologies for industrial hydraulics and pneumatics, air suspension, tire pressure and inflation, braking, engine diagnostics, and emissions systems. The company will be showcasing key pressure sensor products during the Great American Trucking Show (GATS), this week at booth 12019.

Advanced sensor systems, such as tire pressure, enable fleet managers to lengthen the life of their truck tires, reducing one of the most expensive maintenance activities of running a fleet. Safety-critical and productivity systems, such as breaking and lift systems, can be monitored automatically with pressure sensors, reducing the risk of failure and costly equipment downtime. Sensors also allow remote monitoring and regulation of critical engine controls and diagnostics.

"The rugged nature of these vehicles has been a barrier to wide-scale use of sensitive electronic devices, and manufacturers are skeptical of new-to-the-market suppliers that may not have a proven track record with harsh applications," said Timothy O'Brien, specialty vehicle marketing manager, Sensata Technologies. "Our experiences over the past 90-plus years providing reliable sensor technologies in some of the most extreme environments allows us to tackle these specific and demanding needs within the trucking and industrial equipment market."

Sensata Technologies' products come in a wide range of fittings, casings, stress ratings, and electrical inputs/outputs. For more information about the company or its full line of technologies for the trucking industry, please call 888-438-2214 or visit the company's Web site.
