Products and services

Heraeus Nexensos provide different products to meet your different need in many solution. For all solutions, we have wired sensor elements use for attaching lead wires.

Many temperature sensing applications require sensing elements packaged in protective housings.

To reduce development time and cost, Heraeus has developed a line of standard housed sensors suitable for a wide variety of applications.

And for E-mobility solution, we provide high-precision and fast-response soot sensors to monitor whether the diesel particulate matter trap (DPF & GPF) in the aftertreatment system fails.

Heraeus Nexensos Product Portfolio

Heraeus offers a variety of Platinum RTD sensors (PT RTD) with different resistance values (PT100, PT200, PT500, PT1000) and different temperature coefficients (TC3750, TC3770, TC3850). The Surface mount RTD (SMD) Elements are designed for automated board mounting in high-volume applications. Standard SMD Elements are available in Platinum (Pt) 3850 and Nickel 6180 temperature coefficients. These types of sensors are also known as an SMD RTD, SMT and SMT RTD.

News & Innovations

Small, smaller, tiny - towards miniaturization

Heraeus Nexensos has developed a new generation of temperature sensors. With these sensors, potentials for miniaturization can be exploited even further.

Exploiting, that is: Placing extremely small and flexible temperature sensors very close to heat sources. This means that even subtle changes can be monitored in real time. With a footprint of less than 1.0 mm x 0.6 mm and a low profile of 50 µm, even the smallest electronic components can be monitored.

Vaccine distribution increases demand for cryogenic temperature sensors at Heraeus Nexensos

Providing a perfect cold chain for temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical products, such as vaccines and other biologicals, is a major logistical challenge for the pharmaceutical industry.

Heraeus platinum-based resistance temperature detectors (RTD) are a perfect fit for harsh cryogenic sensing applications. Heraeus RTD sensors provide reliable and accurate temperature measurement in dry ice (-78 °C), with capability down to -200 °C. Platinum RTDs exhibit extremely low drift, even after years of service, ensuring reliable data collection for the life of the measurement device.

This reliability translates to precise monitoring of temperature-sensitive biochemical synthesis processes, and secure temperature control and monitoring for the complete cold chain logistic, from shipment to storage.
