Sensirion's mass flow meters ensure fast, accurate and economical measurements of gas flow over a wide dynamic range. At the heart of every mass flow sensor is a MEMS based calorimetric microsensor, which measures the gas flow using the thermal measurement principle. The sensor element is integrated with the complete signal conditioning electronics on one single chip. This unique integrated technological approach - provided by the unparalleled and innovative CMOSens® Technology - results in excellent performance at a very attractive cost. That is why leading manufacturers, including ones in the medical industry, rely on Sensirion's highly sensitive flow meters today.
Sensirion's mass flow controllers are characterized by fast and accurate control of gas flow over a wide dynamic range. Based on the innovative CMOSens® Technology, the heart of these mass flow controllers is a calorimetric microsensor (MEMS), which is integrated with the complete signal conditioning electronics on one single chip. While the flow is measured using the thermal measurement principle, efficient control is provided by an analog controlling circuit. This unique integrated technological approach results in excellent performance and reliability - at a very attractive cost.
Differential pressure sensors from Sensirion measure reliably, fast and stable. The digital and analog sensors offer highest accuracy and resolution, especially at very low differential pressures. The small and cost-effective design makes them an ideal match for price-sensitive solutions, e.g. in medical and HVAC applications. Each differential pressure sensor is individually calibrated and temperature compensated.
Sensirion's liquid flow meters establish new standards wherever monitoring of low liquid flow rates, liquid handling, and liquid dispensing is important. Our unique CMOSens® Technology allows measuring the liquid flow bi-directionally through the wall of the sensors flow channel from hundreds of milliliters per minute down to single-digit nanoliters per minute. Applications in fields like medical devices, diagnostics as well as process and automation technology benefit daily from our safe and reliable sensor solutions.
Sensirion is the world's leading manufacturer of digital relative humidity and temperature sensors. By pioneering digital humidity sensors 15 years ago, Sensirion has defined an industry standard with the SHTxx series. Best-in-class products, unmatched experience and excellent application support make Sensirion the No.1 partner for humidity and temperature sensing.
The high-accuracy digital temperature sensors are based on Sensirions CMOSens® technology, which combines the strengths of standard CMOS production processes and advanced MEMS technology on a single silicon chip.
CMOSens® Technology for IR detection enables carbon dioxide measurements of the highest accuracy at a competitive price. Along with the NDIR measurement technology for detecting CO2 comes a best-in-class Sensirion humidity and temperature sensor integrated on the very same sensor module. Ambient humidity and temperature can be measured by Sensirions algorithm expertise through modelling and compensating of external heat sources without the need of any additional components. The very small module height allows easy integration into different applications.
Sensirions forthcoming PM2.5 sensor will define new market standards for accurate and reliable detection of PM2.5 and PM10. With this new particulate matter sensor, Sensirion expands its range of environmental sensing solutions and opens up a new dimension in indoor and outdoor air quality applications.
The digital gas sensor SGP opens up new possibilities for the measurement of indoor air quality. The long-term stable metal-oxide gas sensor features multiple sensing elements on one chip, the SGP provides in-depth information on air quality. The sensing element features an unmatched robustness against contaminating gases present in real-world applications, enabling a unique long-term stability and low drift. The small package size (2.45 x 2.45 x 0.9 mm3 DFN), the I2C interface, and the dust and water protection membrane make the SGP easy to integrate into a large variety of applications, e.g. in appliances or smart home devices.
Sensirion is the leading manufacturer of high-quality sensors and sensor solutions for the measurement and control of humidity, and of gas and liquid flows. Founded in 1998 as a spin-off from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich, the company is based in Stäfa near Zurich, Switzerland, and employs people in countries such as the USA, South Korea, Japan, China, Taiwan, and Germany. The headquarters in Switzerland is responsible for research, development, and production.
Millions of Sensirion's sensor components and solutions are used all over the world, including in the automotive industry, medical technology, HVAC industry, industrial processes, and in consumer goods. Sensirion's success is based on the innovative CMOSens® technology, which combines the sensor and analysis electronics in a single semiconductor chip. This means large unit numbers can be produced at high quality and low cost. This makes Sensirion a preferred supplier of microsensors and sensor solutions.
