Parker’s EAP sensor technology can be used in a variety of monitoring applications such as strain, and temperature.

In a Sensor application, EAP acts as a displacement-to-capacitance transducer. As the EAP sensor is strained, the dielectric is made thinner and larger in area, causing a measureable increase in the capacitance of the device.

EAP sensor attributes include:
  • Material layers: 1 (25 micron)
  • Deflection range: 635 micron
  • Charge voltage: 3V – 5V
  • Capacitance: 50 pF
  • Capacitance change: 25 pF

Our EAP sensors work with Parker’s SCOUT™ Mobile wireless monitoring systems and software. SCOUT software allows users to view sensor data wirelessly with their iOS or Android mobile devices. They have access to comprehensive diagnostic data and analytics of processes and assets, as well as:
  • Quick, easy view of EAP sensor data
  • User-defined alerts
  • Customized interface
  • Side-by-side comparison of multiple sensors’ data
  • Real-time and historic trends.

SCOUT Mobile software is downloadable for free from the Apple Store and Google Play store.
