Ensure Safety and Comfort. Improve Efficiency. Increase Health.
This is what our sensors do. They make a significant contribution to man and nature.
Ventilators that have to work flawlessly as a matter of life and death. The ideal indoor temperature for improved comfort and reduced costs. Cars that are highly energy efficient despite maintaining the perfect temperature inside the vehicle. We encounter sensors everywhere we go. Effectively a form of artificial sensory organ, sensors today do far more than simply ensure that things run smoothly. In many industries, they are the driving factor behind automation and facilitate an ever-greater degree of networking between machines and systems. New sensor technologies help both people and their surroundings to cope with demographic change, improve all-round sustainability and increase efficiency and safety.
At Sensirion, our focus is on people’s health, safety and comfort, with the aim of enhancing their sense of well-being and improving efficiency. These are the foundations on which life – human and nature – will continue to develop in the future.
Sensirion is committed to more energy-efficient applications.
With energy demands increasing all over the world and natural resources dwindling at an ever-advancing rate, humanity faces a number of major challenges it has to overcome. The energy sector is the number one producer of greenhouse gas emissions today. However, there is a way to counteract this: efficient systems can be used to significantly improve the global energy balance and help to protect the environment. Intelligent systems can curb rising energy consumption across the globe and reduce the use of harmful substances. Sensirion’s portfolio contains sensor solutions designed for use in a wide range of industries for more efficient and sustainable energy management practices.
State-of-the-art heat exchangers reduce energy consumption and costs while optimizing indoor air quality. Sensirion’s differential pressure sensors ensure a constant optimum air flow into the ventilation system, so that the heat in the exhaust air is efficiently transferred to the incoming air or vice versa. The incoming air is cooled if it is higher than room temperature, and heated if it is lower, resulting in less external energy sources.
The air conditioning unit in a car consumes a large amount of energy, especially when the incoming air has to be dried. Therefore, it is desirable to use it only when necessary. Sensirion’s humidity and temperature sensors are placed at the inside of the windshield to optimize control of the air conditioning unit. When the humidity and temperature in the car cabin come close to the condensation point the air conditioning unit is turned on to blow dry and warm air over the windshield, preventing fogging in the first place and ensuring a clear view for the driver. As soon as conditions allow, the air conditioning unit is turned off again in order to save energy.
Ensure Safety and Comfort
Sensirion helps to improve security, safety and well-being.
New technological developments are leading to innovative applications in various areas – the Internet of Things, smart homes, smart energy, the automotive industry, medical technology, etc. – with the aim of benefiting people in terms of safety and comfort. This can take many forms: automatic, optimized ventilation, heating an apartment or a building, managing a household’s energy consumption, ensuring a car windscreen does not fog up while driving, and convenient mobile home care for patients. Everybody understands the desire for safety and comfort. As the world’s leading sensor company, Sensirion provides solutions for customers in many different industries designed to enhance safety and comfort.
Sensirion's environmental sensors enable a room’s air quality to be measured and controlled accordingly. For example, the integration of particulate matter, CO2 and gas sensors into ventilation systems or air purifiers enables the Analysis of indoor air quality and purification using filters. This increases the comfort of the occupants and is beneficial to their health due to a reduced exposure to harmful substances, such as particulate matter.
Climate Control in a Smart Home
Measurement of a building’s air quality offers great potential to ensure higher comfort. In “Smart Home” applications, systems are digitally linked and processes automated, enabling more comfort for its inhabitants. Demand-controlled ventilation and heating systems that adapt to the current use of a room are two examples of such intelligent applications.
A person’s health is their most precious asset.
Sensirion develops sensor solutions that improve various examination and treatment methods – with the overall aim of helping as many people as possible to live a longer, happier and more fulfilling life. Many patients, doctors and nursing staff around the world already benefit from Sensirion’s intelligent sensor systems. Sensirion’s goal is to keep exploring the frontiers of these technologies and bring medtech applications to the next level. For example, Sensirion offers sensor solutions for ventilators, anesthetics, catheters, infusion therapies, implants and lab examinations.
In the fields of emergency medicine, intensive care and home care, Sensirion’s sensors measure the flow of gases. Sensirion has unparalleled expertise when it comes to sensing air flow in ventilation devices, with more than 10 million patients around the world daily relying on its sensors. The use of highly sensitive mass flow meters ensures that patients safely receive the correct amount of air, while the real-time measurement and associated regulation of ventilation reduces the risk of suffocation.
The most common problems associated with standard intravenous infusions include blockages in the infusion flow and open tubes. Sensirion’s liquid flow sensors detect and prevent these issues, allowing the infusion pumps to provide patients with controlled, accurate and self-contained medication.
