GadCap CapaciSense is at the forefront of solutions for blade condition monitoring in extreme environments.

GadCap CapaciSense systems were developed in the 1980’s with the support of Pyrotenax®, the market leader in high temperature mineral insulated cable. Now part of GadCap Technical Solutions, the CapaciSense product has matured into a full system and service package. Currently employed worldwide within the power generation and aerospace industries, GadCap CapaciSense sensors are favoured for their ability to survive extreme temperatures for a long period of time, enabling the whole engine to be monitored continuously, not only the lower temperature compressor areas.
