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 five vehicles that are manufactured today are equipped with a temperature and humidity sensor from Sensirion that 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.
