Sensors for Automotive Industry

Continually making engines better and also cleaner is an important goal of the automobile industry. The requirements placed on today’s vehicles by policymakers and consumers are tremendous. Future generations of vehicles depend on modern emission control systems and hybrid technologies, while electromobility is becoming a key technology for the cars of tomorrow.

Meeting these major challenges will require sophisticated technology. Controlling the processes plays a significant role here, as does precise data measurement. Precision is required even under difficult conditions, such as high temperature variations, harsh environments, and severe mechanical stress.

Platinum sensors from Heraeus guarantee the precision and reliability you need for your applications. With their help, you achieve precise and constant measurement data with little drift even over long periods. In automotive applications they cover a temperature range from -40 °C to 1000 °C. Outstanding chemical and mechanical stability and resistance to moisture, climate, and other environmental factors make measurements reproducible over many tens of thousands of cycles, thereby ensuring the necessary safety in continuous operation. Our products are constantly optimized to meet your needs and are manufactured in dialogue with you.
