We are the leading manufacturer of high-quality sensors and sensor solutions for the measurement and control of humidity, and of gas and liquid flows. The new SLI flow meter series is a high precision solution for low flow rates of liquids based on water or hydrocarbons (alcohols, solvents, oil, fuel, adhesives). Based on Sensirion`s well-proven thermal microsensor technology, it opens new perspectives in terms of sensitivity, reliability and speed. The short response time and high precision of the SLI Flow Meters allows the accurate monitoring of highly dynamic processes such as fast dosing operations.
Sensirion is the leading manufacturer of high-quality sensors and sensor solutions for the measurement and control of humidity, and of gas and liquid flows. Founded in 1998 as a spin-off from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich, the company is based in Stäfa near Zurich, Switzerland, and currently employs around 450 people in countries such as the USA, South Korea, Japan, China, Taiwan, and Germany. The headquarters in Switzerland is responsible for research, development, and production.
Millions of Sensirion's sensor components and solutions are used all over the world, including in the automotive industry, medical technology, building technology, industrial processes, and in consumer goods. Sensirion's success is based on the innovative CMOSens® technology, which combines the sensor and analysis electronics in a single semiconductor chip. This means large unit numbers can be produced at high quality and low cost. This makes Sensirion a preferred supplier of microsensors and sensor solutions.
Sites all around the world and a seamless distribution network mean we can be local to any customer anywhere in the world in order to provide the best possible support at every stage of the project. We have a range of awards that prove we are prepared to go the extra mile for our customers. Most recently, we have received the Ernst & Young 'Entrepreneur of the Year® 2010' Award, which is presented to companies that have contributed to improving the competitiveness of the Swiss economy by means of personal commitment and the willingness to take risks.
Sensirion makes every effort to ensure that its products and services satisfy the most stringent quality specifications. After all, the reliable delivery of impeccable products is a fundamental prerequisite to achieving high customer satisfaction. This applies in particular to applications in sophisticated markets such as medical technology and the automotive industry.
To address the ever stricter specifications, we continuously improve and refine our quality management system. An important step in this process was the company's certification to the ISO/TS 16949 standard in March 2008. This enhances and supplements the previous certification to the ISO 9001 standard.
The ISO certifications of our quality management system are a reflection of our ongoing efforts to design processes that achieve the highest possible customer satisfaction and to maximize the support of our customers' value-added processes.
As well as its decided quality approach, Sensirion also works on the continuous improvement of its environmental performance. Main goals are the permanent increase of energy efficiency, the safe handling of chemicals, and the absence of restricted or hazardous materials - making our production more sustainable. As evidence of this policy, Sensirion was certified according to the environmental ISO 14001 standard in March 2011.
