In support of the worldwide demand of ventilators, Sensirion launches enablement platform to distributors
Sensirion, a global leader in environmental and flow sensing started a new initiative across all SFM3xxx flow module platforms for distribution networks worldwide. The new program will be providing smaller stock of our inspiratory (SFM3019, SFM3020, SFM3100, SFM3200, SFM3000), expiratory (SFM3200-AW), and proximal solutions (SFM3300-D, SFM3300-AW) to distribution stock.
OEM’s and government bodies worldwide are facing an unparalleled challenge to ramp and stock up on ventilators in order to combat the COVID spread. As the virus has spread throughout each country, there is a shortage of flow meter modules more than ever to those now requiring devices for initial prototyping, certification or pilot run activity. Often these activities are unable to proceed or are at best delayed due to other countries and companies already allocating massive inventory for ventilation builds from vendors such as Sensirion.
This program allows pre-production activities to quickly perform simple tasks such as validation or regulatory approval to move the process along while larger production orders are in route. This is a very challenging bottleneck in the design process that we are dedicating smaller flow meter batches to on a regular basis to handle all customers of any size and region. It is a complement to our current massive scaling efforts over 10x in production to show unbiased support as COVID does not show bias in its’ spread globally.
These units will be provided on a regular basis without delaying pre-committed production orders. The support is based on the analysis of curves progressing across each individual continent and fulfillment to global demand. Note that stock is limited and to provide equal support, will have a restriction on the quantity that each request can attain.
We thank all healthcare workers and respiratory OEM’s working around the clock to combat this pandemic.
