Things You Should Know about Sensor Technology in Environment and Laboratory

Posted: October 21, 2020 at 8:15 pm / by / comments (0)

Have you ever heard about the sensor? Well, a sensor is a term that is often used in daily life. In general, a sensor can be defined as the equipment of a tool that can be used to detect the small concentration or level in a specific subject. The sensor technology can detect and determine anything based on its program. This technology is beneficial for the industry during the production process. So, the quality of the product and safety of the production process can be maintained. In addition, some laboratories have developed sensor technology that can detect trace toxic compounds, metals, and environment conditions accurately. They can use simple equipment but offers good performance in the detection process.

In environmental monitoring and laboratory, sensor technology plays a big role. Why? The sensor technology can sense any environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity. In addition, the sensor technology can detect the flow rate of gas, conductivity, and others in the laboratory or industry. So, the standard condition of the synthesis of the production process can be maintained. The sensor technology also plays a big role in the biological analysis since some biosensors can be used for detecting any biomolecule in the real sample accurately.

Some sensor technologies are developed in the laboratory of some universities. Every year, there will be a lot of new sensor technologies that have been invented for many purposes. However, for the industries or laboratories that cannot develop their own sensor technology, they can purchase it from some companies. They can choose it from a company that has a specialty in the development of sensor technology. One of them is from Innovative Sensor Technology IST AG. This company is well known is providing the best and most innovative sensor technology.

The IST AG provides many types of sensors such as temperature sensor, humidity sensor, flow sensor, conductivity sensor, and biosensor technology. The temperature sensor of this company can be divided into some types such as platinum, nickel, and TSIC. Those temperature sensors can detect any temperature from -50 oC to 1,000 oC.The benefits of the temperature sensors from IST AG are excellent thermal coupling, fast response time, small dimensions, and others. On the other hand, this company also offers flow sensor products. The flow sensor technology can be divided into two types that are gas flow and liquid flow sensor. It depends on the desired phase. Meanwhile, the conductivity sensor can be used for detecting conductivity of substance in the range of 100 μS/cm to 200 mS/cm (typical cell constant of 0.68 cm -1). On the other hand, the biosensor technology can be used to determine some biomolecules such as glutamine, glucose, and others. The biosensor is developed based on the enzymatic characteristic in amperometry technology.

Well, in order to maintain the quality of the sensor technology, the IST AG proceed with the sensor through some processes. Each process is carefully checked by the professionals. The production processes of sensors are deposition of substrates, photolithography, etching, laser trimming, screen printing, dicing, welding, and measuring.
