We Make Your Applications More Energy Efficient
The growing global demand for energy and our planet's rapidly depleting natural resources present a major challenge to humankind, and it is vital that we take steps to address this challenge today. The majority of greenhouse gas emissions are currently produced by the energy sector. This means that through efficient systems, we have the chance to significantly improve the global energy balance and make a major contribution to environmental protection. Through energy-efficient applications, we can counteract the constantly growing energy consumption around the world while at the same time reducing harmful emissions. As the leading international manufacturer of sensor solutions, we offer our clients from a wide variety of industries solutions for sustainable and efficient energy management.
State-of-the-art heat exchangers allow you to reduce your energy consumption and save money while at the same time optimizing the indoor climate and your comfort level in your home or office. Our differential pressure sensors create a continuous air flow in the ventilation system, which means that the energy contained in the exhaust air can be transferred to the supply air. If the supply air is warmer than the air temperature in the room, it is cooled using this energy transfer; if it is too cool, it is heated. This eliminates the need for external energy sources in order to optimally temper the incoming air.
This is just one example of a sustainable building technology energy system. Temperature and humidity measurement in buildings also opens up a wide range of possibilities to conserve energy. The term "smart home" stands for the digital networking and automation of a house. This technology markedly improves inhabitants' quality of life and increases security in the home while also boosting energy efficiency. Take, for example, automatic ventilation or heating that is automated based on room usage.
Vehicle air-conditioning systems consume a great deal of energy. For this reason, it makes sense to ensure that the air-conditioning is only switched on when it is truly needed. One in three vehicles that are manufactured today are equipped with a sensor from Sensirion that for example is used to intelligently control the air-conditioning system. Activating the ventilation system in the car can prevent the windshield from fogging up, which in turn ensures that the driver always has a clear view of the road. Once the temperature and humidity levels in the vehicle are no longer conducive to condensation, the air-conditioning is switched off automatically, thereby reducing energy consumption.
Sensors are also used to regulate the cooling systems in cars with air-conditioned seats. Here the temperature and humidity on the surface of the seat and the backrest are regulated using ventilators that convey air through the seat. As with the interior climate control, people tend to leave the seat cooling system on longer than necessary. Sensirion has automated air-conditioned seating so that it only uses energy when the temperature and humidity levels on the seat and backrest are high enough to cause passenger discomfort.

With our sensor solutions, we help ensure energy-efficient operation of family homes, industrial facilities, and entire building complexes and increase the level of comfort. Sensirion is one of the world's leading manufacturer of sensor solutions for heating, ventilation and air conditions (HVAC), appliance and industrial automation.
Sensirion offers comprehensive sensor solutions for the automotive market with outstanding quality, low prices, and expert support. Using Sensirion’s proven sensor solutions, we help automotive manufacturers meet stringent emission standards in the automotive industry and reduce the vehicle's energy consumption by up to 3 percent. Our sensors set new standards in terms of comfort, safety, and energy consumption. They ensure that cabin air is always optimally regulated inside the vehicle for the driver by means of air-conditioning or climate-controlled seats. Furthermore, by determining the dew point the vehicle’s air-conditioning can be controlled to eliminate fogging of the windshields and ensure a clear view of the road ahead.
Medical devices must meet the highest standards in terms of quality and reliability. Doctors, nurses, and patients benefit daily from applications in the field of medical technology that are getting smarter by the day. The use of proven Sensirion sensor solutions contributes to this and offers the possibility of making applications safer, more reliable, and more convenient. Our many years of experience in the field of medical technology make us the preferred experts for leading medical-technology companies.
The Internet of Things (IoT) makes our house a smart home: effectively an interconnected living area where machines, too, interact with each other. Due to this tight network of and communication between electronic devices via sensors, a house “learns” how best to work according to the requirements of its occupants. For example, it controls and monitors the power consumption, household appliances, heating and ventilation, etc. This smart control increases the quality of life and living significantly, and leads to a more efficient use of energy.
