Company
Profile

Innovative Sensor Technology is a world-class manufacturer of thin-film RTD temperature sensors, capacitive humidity sensors, mass flow sensors, conductivity sensors and biosensors at the component level. With our state-of-the-art manufacturing technology, we offer both standard and custom sensors to satisfy various applications. Additionally, our highly qualified staff is now offering R&D consulting services for industrial applications. Our sensors have applications in the process control, building automation, test and measurement, medical, automotive, and appliance industries.

The IST USA Division, located in Las Vegas NV is a wholly owned subsidiary of Innovative Sensor Technology. We handle your needs with in-house stock and our technical support team. We offer during business hours design in and application support as well as after sales support with our on-site engineering team. Established in 1991 with headquarter in  Ebnat Kappel, Switzerland, Innovative Sensor Technology offers the most advanced technology in the sensor industry for over 20 years. Staying consistent with the Swiss standard of quality, we have been ISO 9001 and 14001 certified since 1997 and pride ourselves in our reliable products.

IST produces three types of thin film measurement technology: RTD temperature sensors, capacitive relative humidity sensors, and mass flow sensors.  Manufactured at the component level, these elements are available with a diverse range of standard and custom features. Our temperature sensors are offered in platinum and nickel with customer specified size, TCR value, extension type, and nominal resistance.

 

Our humidity sensor product line features excellent stability and linearity, rapid response times, high chemical resistance, and temperature compensation. Humidity sensors are available in multiple operating temperature ranges with different base capacitances. Our flow sensors are applicable in both gas and partially in liquids. They are able to measure extremely low and high flow rates, indicate flow direction, are suitable for level and bubble detection and come with optional housings to facilitate assembly.

 

IST AG is certified in accordance with ISO 9001:2008 / ISO 14001:2004 and uses respective quality management systems and procedures.

 

The quality management procedures are regularly audited, revised, and expanded, as necessary, in order to keep up with the growth of the company. This ensures that we can guarantee stable products at highest quality level fulfilling even most stringent requirements for unparalleled reliability, customer oriented service, and continuous innovation.

 

To us, this quality policy is of strategic importance: it thus comprises the basic principle of all our day by day business and activities.

Capacitive Humidity Sensors

Capacitive RH sensors consist of a ceramic substrate on which a thin film of polymer is deposited between two conductive electrodes.

The sensing surface is coated with a micropourous metal electrode, allowing the polymer to absorb moisture while protecting it from contamination and exposure to condensation. As the polymer absorbs water, the dielectric constant changes incrementally and is nearly directly proportional to the relative humidity of the surrounding environment. Thus, by monitoring the change in capacitance, relative humidity can be derived.

IST thin film capacitive relative humidity sensors are capable of measuring 0 to 100% relative humidity and operating at temperature ranges of -80°C to +190°C.  The humidity sensor product line features sensors with excellent linearity, low hysteresis, fast response times, and high chemical resistance.

IST provides exclusive humidity sensors with directly integrated platinum temperature sensors that cater to a wide range of applications. A variety of different layouts and connections such as SMD and wired configurations are available.

Flow Sensors

The Innovative Sensor Technology IST AG thin-film mass flow sensors offer solutions for a wide variety of flow applications. The thin-film and membrane technologies incorporate highly accurate temperature sensors and heaters as core elements on the sensors. The sensors are applicable in gas (operating temperature range of -20 °C to +400 °C) and liquid (operating temperature range of -50 °C to +180 °C) and can measure flow rates and direction from 0 m/s to 100 m/s.

IST AG develops and manufactures thermal flow sensors and offers three different solutions for measuring flow rates in gas and liquid applications. The standard solutions are optimal for various flow applications but can be fitted to meet customer specific requirements. For standard flow sensors, electronics for the evaluation are offered.

With many years of experience, IST AG also offers development of customer-specific applications in terms of technology development and consultation. As part of the standard development process, IST AG offers support at the point of implementation - this way we ensure the best solution for specific applications.

Biosensors

Innovative Sensor Technology IST AG offers biosensors designed to measure the concentration of glucose, lactate, glutamine and glutamate in aqueous media. The biosensors use the enzymatic-amperometric measurement principle. They rely on immobilized enzymes to detect the target analytes with high specificity and reliability. Jobst Technologies GmbH, as part of IST AG, has developed an immobilization system that allows for adjusting parameters such as sensitivity and measurement range, thus meeting the requirements of different applications and customers. Furthermore, the technology is compatible with gamma and beta irradiation.
