About Heraeus Nexensos

More About

Heraeus Nexensos Is the Global Market Leader for Maximum Reliability in Temperature Sensing.

Sensor Expert KNSY

High-precision temperature measurement is essential for many key technologies, and a prerequisite for efficient technical solutions. Platinum temperature sensors are characterized by high stability, repeatability, and fast response times. Heraeus offers a wide range of platinum temperature sensors with a variety of resistance values and temperature coefficients.

The possible applications for platinum thin film technology far exceeds the well-known temperature sensor. Innovative multifunction chips are created by combining sensors, heaters, application-specific electrodes and other structures on a single substrate.

For over 100 years, Heraeus Nexensos continues to develop innovative solutions to support your development goals.
