BD|Sensors - Pressure Measurement at the Highest Level


'Successful medium-size companies are not successful because they are active in many areas, but rather because they concentrate on one area and do it better than anyone else.” 

This is our philosophy. That's why BD|SENSORS has concentrated on electronic pressure measurement technology from the beginning. With our unremitting product and quality strategy we have been successful in becoming a major player on the world market for electronic pressure measurement devices within a few years.

Our consistent product and quality strategy has enabled us to set new benchmarks on the global market with the development of a portfolio of pressure measurement devices that range from 0.1 mbar up to 6,000 bar:

  • pressure sensors
  • pressure transmitter
  • electronic pressure switches
  • pressure transmitter with display and switching outputs
  • submersible probes
  • display and evaluation devices

While we had to purchase all pressure sensors during the first years of our existence, we are now one of the few or possibly the only provider on the global market that manufactures four sensor technologies in-house or that has them produced by partner companies by using in-house know-how. For more information on this topic, please go to 'sensor technologies'.

Today, the product portfolio of our more than 100 standard products ranges from affordable OEM devices to high-end products with HART®-communication or fieldbus interface.

In addition we have developed hundreds of customer-specific solutions, underlining the competence and flexibility of BD|SENSORS. The excellent price/efficiency ratio of our products is proof of the fact that we are able to meet the toughest demand: Being a problem-solver for our customer .

For large production batches as well as for small lot sizes, no matter for what medium or external factors, with almost any mechanical or electrical connections - we solve your problem.

Our Quality is Your Bonus for Success!

DIN EN ISO 9001:2015
The highest possible quality is certified regularly. BD|SENSORS and its quality management always achieves this certification, as it did recently too.

What's it all about?
It's about no less than guaranteeing customer satisfaction. All processes and routines to be kept running smoothly within a company, between market coverage, understanding of the work, production, innovation and waste disposal are assessed from that perspective. That's what ISO 9001 stands for.

Customers need trustworthy and reliable partners, now and in the future. As technology, markets and customer needs are subject to changes it is self-evident that independent certification bodies only issue ISO 9001 certificates for a fixed time limit. Audits are run at great expense and effort, which is recognisable in that companies are methodically put to the test. This guarantees independent transparent results. Certification can only be assumed if effectiveness is apparent in all aspects of quality management. Just one guarantee for the crucial regular successful certification of BD|SENSORS lies in the sound expertise of our staff. Highly specialised personnel develop and realise customised solutions for customers from a whole range of industries on time.

BD|SENSORS' competence is reflected in its structured development, is underpinned by our clear processes and completed by on schedule assembly and delivery. You also receive quality and professionalism afterwards from our experienced sales staff and quick, uncomplicated service handling. Furthermore, the exclusive use of first-class quality purchased parts from our suppliers is indispensable for our company. Our aim is constant improvement of the highest standard.

DIN EN ISO 9001 for BD|SENSORS is the result.
