Monitoring environmental conditions is crucial for many processes that impact our daily life. Fish that has been transported in an environment that is too warm might not only not taste bad but could also pose a danger to the consumer’s health. A drug that has been produced, transported, or stored under the wrong conditions will not have its intended effect. Plants that are grown in an unfavorable environment will most likely never reach their full potential or beauty. For all these and many more applications, data loggers are used to empower users to trace and manage environmental conditions accurately and comprehensively.
Sensirion develops and manufactures highly accurate sensors to be built into data loggers to further improve their readings and increase data quality. With its strong focus on innovation (24% of revenue is invested into R&D), Sensirion not only supports the needs of data loggers today but also shapes the future of what is possible in this market in the future with groundbreaking new sensor technologies.
To achieve a reduction of food waste it is crucial to consider the entire supply chain from farm to fork. Many fruits and vegetables, such as bananas, are transported and stored in a controlled atmosphere (CA) to preserve freshness. CA parameters are carbon dioxide (CO2) as well as humidity and temperature (RH/T). The exact conditions depend a lot on the exact commodity, with typically a low temperature, high humidity and CO2 concentration somewhere between 1% and 20%. Proper monitoring and controlling of the transportation conditions allows to prevent losses by proactive action and improve the quality of the supply chain. Sensirion has just the right sensors for the job! Learn more
During production, handling, and delivery of pharma products, environmental parameters such as temperature and humidity must be closely controlled. For example, only product temperatures within presupposed limits will guarantee the intended use or even prevent fatal misuse. Recognizing the impact of handling conditions on product reliability has generated high standards in the industry from companies and legislation, such as GDP and pharmacopoeia, and EN12830.
The requirements place particular emphasis on the calibration of data loggers. Here, ISO 17025-compliant, three-point calibration processes ensure the highest monitoring quality. Sensirion provides value to the industry by supplying fully calibrated digital temperature sensors including three-point calibration certificates. This enables customers to manufacture data loggers in a scalable and cost-efficient way with the highest quality standards. Learn more
