SmartCap 850 GT

Unprecedented capabilities in the world’s harshest environments

Work Hotter and Smarter

Pressure Sensing to 850°C

The SmartCap 850 GT is a capacitive sensor for simultaneously measuring pressure and ultra-high temperatures for extremely demanding applications such as energy generation and propulsion systems. It provides static pressure at high data rates and analyzes high-frequency pressure/acoustic signals in the compressor to output real-time metrics that can be indicative of compressor and combustor health and performance (blade passing frequency, stall onset, etc.). The sensor is engineered to survive and perform in extreme high temperature, oxidative and corrosive environments.

Harsh Environment

Including up to 850°C and corrosive environments

High Bandwidth

Visibility into high-frequency pressure phenomena up to 39 kHz


Onboard processing for predictive analysis or other real-time analytics (requires programming) for active process control.
