Accurate pressure readings are critical for any facility’s safe and efficient operation. As the energy-producing industry rapidly transforms into the digital age, engineers are beginning to achieve deeper clarity of facilities by adding increasingly more data measuring points. However, while data leads innovation, we understand that, in certain situations, traditional instrumentation can still play a vital role for engineers.
Addressing these demands, TWTG has developed a new pressure sensor that is accurate, versatile, and robust. The NEON Pressure Sensor is available in several pressure ranges and various other options, including one with a Badotherm gauge. The analogue meter addresses an engineer’s need for immediate visual feedback when performing manual inspections, delicate maintenance, or possibly emergency procedures. This design is best for digital and analogue workflows, with less failure points than competing installations.
NEON Pressure Sensors provide data for predictive maintenance and monitoring and issue alerts when tolerances are breached. They are retrofittable, with up to ten years of battery life, and communicate wirelessly via a local LoRaWAN network. As with all products in the NEON range, the sensors are IECEx, ATEX certified I-IoT devices.

IECEx Class 0 / ATEX Zone 0 certified
Designed for industry from the very beginning, TWTG’s NEON product line is built to not only operate in industrial sites where explosive gasses are being handled but also all other elements that a sensor may be exposed to in the course of its lifetime (up to 10 years). It has been tested and certified to work in conditions from -40° to 70° Celsius without hampering performance. The devices are designed and engineered in such a way that they can be safely and securely deployed in a wireless network and are remotely configurable, ensuring not only longevity but also reliability within an operation.
Accurate pressure readings are critical for safety and efficiency
Additional to the sensor’s extremely long lifetime, TWTG delivers spare parts and product lifecycle support. The sensor can continue to be used with the correct refurbishment kit. This way, maintenance can be kept at a minimum.
NEON Pressure Sensor can be installed / mounted using its bracket with a band clamp or bolts. The cable between the transmitter and sensor part allows for flexible placing options and easy access on-site.
NEON Product Line - LoRa devices designed for heavy industry
The NEON product range supports all industrial customers moving towards LoRaWAN as the Industrial IoT network of the future. The LoRaWAN network gives industrial operations a secure solution, which has no vendor lock-in, scales-up to tens of thousands of sensors, covers complete sites with only a small amount of gateways and best of all – the low-power approach means that the lifetime of the NEON products can be extended dramatically. This international networking technology is quickly becoming the industry standard.
NEON stands for a standardised approach to collecting data points from within the operation and a general approach to creating integrated solutions with existing IT ecosystems.
