Continuous, on-line condition monitoring enabled for demanding applications, on mobile equipment, in harsh environments
with wireless, battery-less, easy-to-install and cost-effective sensors
SAW sensors bring new possibilities in process and equipment instrumentation, to achieve real-time condition monitoring and process control easily, quickly and at low cost.
High robustness, top performance, no cable disposal for installation, no battery disposal and no maintenance required overtime, industry standard interfaces with existing networks to control room or to local HMI: the features and the modularity of SENSeOR’s monitoring platform bring high value over the Smart Grid, in the Smart Factory, to Chefs and to TSO’s, DSO’s and all Industrials willing to get maximum throughput, high quality and optimum life-cycle costs from their equipment!
A wide scope of applications for challenging measurements
As they are wireless and entirely passive, SENSeOR’s sensors enable new measurements where other sensors are not convenient or impossible to use: on rotating parts, in inaccessible places, in harsh environments.
In addition to industrial equipment monitoring, professional appliance instrumentation and the numerous applications over the grid, SAW sensors can also bring value to applications in environment monitoring (Ex.: Temperature monitoring of inaccessible areas for scientific or meteorological purposes) or for continuous or on request structural health monitoring of engineered structures resulting in early detection of deformations before they lead to damage, thus improving safety and reducing total costs of ownership (buried/implanted sensors in concrete floors and walls, wooden beams and roofs, plastics, steel for monitoring of bridges, building foundations, tunnels, beams, historic monuments, churches, stadiums).
Exclusive promising features for Healthcare applications
As our society progresses, people live longer and prefer to stay independent at home. Telemedecine or home hospitalization gain importance. Under certain treatments, it’s crucial to constantly monitor patient health. It’s also an economic necessity to optimize patient care inside or outside medical facilities.
SENSeOR’s innovative sensors can play a signification role in real-time, remote patient monitoring and biotechnology. Low-profile, wireless and passive, mounted on biologically compatible material; they can be implanted in the human body.
They can be embedded in material or fabrics for continuous surveillance of critical health parameters. They can be set up to trigger an alarm when a critical level is reached.
They also enable new levels of sensitivity in chemical and biological sensing.
Produced in volumes, they would reach very low costs, making them suitable for disposable devices.
Examples of possible developments in advanced R&D projects: disposable body temperature patch at skin contact, implantable blood pressure sensor, implantable stress sensor for prosthesis monitoring etc.
