Sensirion is a leading Swiss high-tech company with headquarters in Staefa near Zurich and sales offices in the USA, Japan, South Korea and China. Its highly skilled team of over 200 employees develops and produces CMOS-based sensor components and systems for a wide variety of medical and other demanding OEM applications. The range of high-quality products includes gas and liquid flow sensors, mass flow meters, mass flow controllers, differential pressure sensors, and humidity sensors (RH&T).

Sensirion is a reliable partner for the global OEM industry, providing millions of sensors each year. Based on its innovative CMOSens® Technology, Sensirion offers standard sensor solutions as well as customer-specific versions. Therefore, the existing standards are modified or completely redesigned on request.

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 superior accuracy and sensitivity even at low differential pressures (below 10 Pa). This makes them perfectly fit for use as flow sensors 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. In this way, Sensirion’s sensor solutions help to increase the safety and reliability of medical devices.
