Sensirion designs and develops digital microsensors and systems. They measure and control humidity, gas and liquid flows. Sensors are used for all manner of applications. They could control the heating system in your home, enabling you to save on energy costs. Or they could be used in breathing apparatus during respiratory treatment to monitor oxygen levels. Sensirion has 600 employees from many different countries like USA, South Korea, Japan, China, Taiwan, and Germany. However, all of their research, development and production still takes place in Switzerland. This means they can still put ‘Made in Switzerland’ on all their products. The company is very successful with annual revenue of CHF 174.8 million in 2018. This represented a massive 18% growth and the trend is set to continue.
History and Mission
ETH graduates Moritz Lechner and Felix Mayer founded the company in 1998. They launched their first sensor in 2000 and the company grew fast. It is now based in Stäfa, Switzerland. They manufacture sophisticated and cost-effective environmental and flow sensor solutions for the automotive, medical, industrial, and consumer markets. The success of Sensirion is, in part, due to innovative CMOSens technology, which combines the sensor and analysis electronics in one semiconductor chip. Their mission is to improve the quality of life wherever possible through unique sensor applications.
Industrial – Sensors are essential in industry. By monitoring and controlling heat and airflow in HVAC systems you can significantly reduce energy consumption in entire building complexes. Obtaining maximum comfort for the inhabitants and cutting costs at the same time. Sensors can be used to optimise automation processes and also provide critical safety indicators.
Automotive – 1 out of 3 cars manufactured in the world contains at least one Sensirion sensor. They are used in climate control to ensure optimum comfort and reduce energy waste. They can monitor humidity to prevent fogging windshields and they help to meet stringent emission standards.
