For more than thirty years, the engineers at Sensing Technologies have been working closely with customers in the HVAC, refrigeration, food service, pool/spa, medical, automotive, and military/defense markets. Quality is our highest priority. We recognize that in this era of reduced engineering resources, many companies are looking for a way to extend their engineering talent. It is for that reason that we encourage our customers to think of us a partner in the design, development, and manufacture of high quality, precision temperature sensors and probe assemblies.
When it comes to measuring temperature, no two applications are exactly alike. At STI, we believe that the proper design of a temperature sensor requires a collaborative effort between the customer and the manufacturer. The process starts with a thorough understanding of the application requirements, including temperature range, accuracy, thermal response and electrical isolation. Equally important, however, are the environmental requirements such as moisture and chemical resistance, vibration, freeze/thaw cycling, and thermal shock.
At STI, we offer a wide variety of sensing elements, including epoxy coated chip and glass encapsulated thermistors, thin film and wire wound platinum RTDs, voltage to temperature transducers, and current to temperature transducers. Our sensors are used from -50°C to +500°C with acccuracies as close as ±0.10°C.
A properly designed housing is critical to sensor performance. It locates the element in direct contact with the medium to be measured and protects the sensor from damage while allowing for the fastest possible thermal response. In addition to having a large selection of standard list precision closed end tubes, we offer a wide variety of machined stainless steel, brass, copper, and plastic housings.
Throughout the design process, we use 3D modeling as our means of communicating ideas to and getting feedback from our customers. Once the model is complete and approved, we often provide prototype units for test and evaluation.
Sensing Technologies utilizes NIST traceable temperature measuring equipment to insure accuracy at tolerances down to ±0.01°C. MIL standard testing includes shock and vibration, temperature, humidity, corrosion, and altitude.
