Sensirion has announced its new calibrated and ISO 17025-certified humidity and temperature sensors. These sensors enable customers to achieve cost-efficient GDP-compliant supply chain monitoring of drugs, vaccines, and perishable goods. Highly regulated products, such as pharmaceutical or perishable goods, typically require special handling along their distribution chain to comply with several directives. Manufacturers are obligated […]
New sensor solution for ventilators
The global demand for sensors for ventilatros keeps increasing. As a sensor technology manufacturer, Sensirion has made a giant development leap and is now introducing the new flow sensor SFM3019 to the market. The sensor has been optimized for respiratory applications and is available in high volumes. A dedicated team of developers has been working […]
How are gas sensors impacting the HVAC market?
An integral part of smart buildings and even regular homes and commercial buildings, heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems strive to reduce air extraction and limit energy consumption. In the process, limiting humidity and CO2 concentration and providing optimum and efficient comfort must also be achieved. To address these issues, the sensors need to […]
What information does a proximal flow sensor provide?
At Sensors Expo 2019 in San Jose, CA, Lucas Tschuor, Head of Field Application Engineering at Sensirion, explains how his company’s proximal flow sensor is used in respiratory applications with the help of a teddy bear. With a very sensitive device, breathing cycles can be detected and help the patient breathe providing an ideal sensor […]
What market growth is expected for sensors? Part 2: Gas Sensors
While there are several market research reports published each year for sensors, some focus on specific markets like industrial, automotive or consumer and others address a single sensor category. Gas sensors are an interesting example. In “Global Gas Sensor Market Study Report 2019,” QY Research says the global Gas Sensor market is valued at million […]
What’s happening in air quality sensing?
Many people take clean air as a given. However, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates (2014) that 4 million deaths globally are caused, at least in part, by air pollution. WHO also estimates (2016) that more than 90% of the world’s population lives in regions where air pollutant levels are higher than the WHO specified […]
New EK-P4 Evaluation Kit with Flow Element
Sensirion presents the advanced EK-P4 evaluation kit, which simplifies the evaluation of Sensirion’s differential pressure sensors even further. The kit combines all the features required for test measurement, including a flow element, so first measurements can be made cost-effectively and exceptionally quickly. The evaluation kit consists of a USB stick connected to a PCB on […]
