Sensirion – The Sensor Company

Sensirion, headquartered in Staefa, Switzerland, is one of the leading manufacturers of environmental and flow sensors. With offices in the USA, Germany, Japan, South Korea, China and Taiwan Sensirion employs a highly skilled team of over 800 people. The headquarters in Switzerland is responsible for research, development, and production of the CMOS-based sensor components and systems that are applicable to a wide variety of medical and other demanding OEM applications. In addition to the Swiss headquarters, our worldwide branch offices support the sales of our sensor systems and solutions, which guarantees a competent support and efficient customer service around the globe.


An Innovative Technology

Sensirion owes its success to its innovative and patented CMOSens® Technology. This technology integrates sensor elements and evaluation circuitry within a single semiconductor chip. This combination ensures that the weak sensor signals can be amplified and digitized with high precision directly where they are generated, thereby making them resistant to interference. This provides the basis for the extremely high measurement accuracy of Sensirion’s sensors. With the elimination of fault-prone solder joints, users also gain from outstanding long-term stability, as has been proven by extensive field tests. In the highly competitive medical market, this system integration offers unbeatable customer benefits, in particular its high reliability and precision at low cost.


Customized Sensor Solutions for the Medical Industry

Medical devices must meet the highest standards in terms of quality and reliability. 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. Besides standard sensor solutions, Sensirion offers custom versions. The essential goal is to understand the requirements of our customers and to implement the key benefits of our technology skillfully to their advantage by modifying or completely redesigning our products. As a result, perfectly suitable products for the medical market are available: The high-sensitivity liquid flow sensors are designed for measuring ultra-low flow rates in diagnostics applications, while the mass flow meters for gases are especially appropriate for respiratory devices. Due to their dynamic flow measurement principle, Sensirion’s digital and analog differential pressure sensors offer superb long-term stability and achieve highest accuracy and sensitivity even at low differential pressures (below 10 Pa). This makes them a perfect fit for the use in anesthesia equipment and medical ventilators. For the control of an ambient atmosphere, Sensirion provides a variety of humidity and temperature sensors, which are characterized by excellent performance and low power consumption. Thereby Sensirion’s sensor solutions help to increase the safety and reliability of medical devices.


Sensirion's Latest Solutions for Medical Applications

Flow Platform SFM3xxx
Sensirion's flow platform SFM3xxx includes sensors for inspiratory, expiratory and proximal flow measurement as well as gas mixing in ventilation and anesthesia applications. With the platform, Sensirion offers its customers the right sensor for all flow measurements and underscores its worldwide expertise in the field of medical ventilation. The SFM3xxx platform from Sensirion consists of multiple flow sensors with comprehensive capabilities for a diverse range of medical applications. All sensors share characteristics such as high precision or robustness, are fully calibrated, temperature-compensated and measure the flow rates of air and other non-corrosive gases bidirectionally. The sensors of the platform also impress with very low pressure drop and fast signal processing times.


Infusion Therapy
Everyday millions of patients worldwide receive intravenous infusion therapy, many times assisted by a smart infusion pump. With the single-use liquid flow sensors of the LD20 series the liquid flow rate can be measured directly and at the point of interest for a more effective patient treatment and improved safety. LD20 series combines Sensirion’s proven liquid flow sensing technology with a single-use, cost-optimized design for high volume applications in the medical industry. The sensor provides a bidirectional measurement of flow rates from 1000 ml/h down to single-digit ml/h, while it as well reliably detects common failure modes such as occlusion, free flow, or air bubbles with unprecedented speed and sensitivity. This will lead to an increase in patient safety and well-being, a reduced workload and less stress for hospital staff as well as overall savings in the healthcare system.


Smart Inhaler
More than half of patients using an inhaler today suffer from poor disease control and are a long way from achieving optimal therapy. A digital connected air flow sensor as an integral part of an inhaler provides drastic advancements. With the SDP3x flow sensor, Sensirion enables solutions ranging from the simple triggering of inhalation flows to the precise characterization of flow profiles. Existing inhalers and platforms can easily be upgraded with a clip to integrate the required electronics. No matter if integrated or as a clip-on, robust and accurate flow measurement with high sensitivity is an important feature for avoiding application errors and improving disease management and patient outcomes. This provides customers with the right solution for all smart inhalers and creates a powerful tool in asthma and COPD disease management.
