              • HUMIDITY SENSORS

              • Capacitive RH sensors consist of a ceramic substrate on which a thin film of polymer is deposited between two conductive electrodes. The sensing surface is coated with a microporous metal electrode, allowing the polymer to absorb moisture while protecting it from contamination and exposure to condensation. As the polymer absorbs water, the dielectric constant changes incrementally and is nearly directly proportional to the relative humidity of the surrounding environment. Thus, by monitoring the change in capacitance, relative humidity can be derived.

                Innovative Sensor Technology IST AG humidity sensors are capable of measuring 0 % RH to 100 % RH and operating at temperature ranges of -80 °C to +190 °C. The humidity product line features sensors with excellent linearity, low hysteresis, fast response times, and high chemical resistance.

            • CONDUCTIVITY SENSORS

            • Electrical conductivity is the ability of a material to build an electric current in the presence of an electric field. Metals are good conductors and therefore exhibit a large conductivity. Insulators are bad conductors having a very small, close-to-zero conductivity. In liquids, particularly aqueous solutions, the conductivity is greatly affected by the amount of dissolved charged atoms or molecules (ions).

              Conductivity measurements are widely used in industrial and environmental applications as a simple and inexpensive way to control the ionic content in a solution. In water purification systems, the conductivity is monitored at different stages of the process. Since the mobility of the dissolved ions is affected by temperature, these monitoring systems are required to either control the process temperature or to compensate readings according to the sample temperature.

              Innovative Sensor Technology IST AG has combined thin- and thick-film technologies to develop ceramic-based conductivity sensors that include a resistive temperature sensor (Pt1000 IEC 60751 F0.3), thus allowing for accurate compensation at the point of measurement. The conductivity sensor consists of two current electrodes and two measuring electrodes. This basic design can be adjusted to specific applications and requirements.

                • BIOSENSORS

                • Biosensors allow the analysis of complex biological media. The detection of a large number of compounds is of great relevance, not only for scientific research but also for process control in the chemical and food industry. It is also indispensable in the healthcare field for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and monitoring of illnesses. The pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries greatly desire frequent to continuous analysis of biological media.
