Angst+Pfister AG, of Zürich, Switzerland, a leading supplier of mechanical and electronic components for the industrial and medical OEM markets, announces the acquisition of the temperature and pressure sensor business of Smartec BV.

Smartec BV, based in Breda, the Netherlands, is a developer and manufacturer of high-precision, semiconductor-based temperature and pressure sensors – also for industrial and medical OEM applications. After having been successful for 35 years in sensor technology, Rolf de Boer, Smartec’s owner and CEO, has decided to take his well-deserved retirement and sold the business to Angst+Pfister. Angs...

The potentiometric measuring principle for oxygen sensing has the widest range of concentration ranges among all oxygen sensing technologies – from 10-35 bar O2 and up to 100% O2. The physics may be complex, but the concept is easy to understand – one side of a heated zirconia element is exposed to the sample gas with an unknown oxygen gas concentration and the other side to a known reference...

The parametric measuring principle for oxygen sensing works in a concentration range from ~0% O2 and up to 100% O2. The physics is rather complex, and there are different measurement approaches in order to exploit the fact that the oxygen atom is paramagnetic, because of the two unpaired electrons. Some measurement approaches use a temperature imbalance between thermistor pairs caused by a...
