09-03-2021 | Sensirion | Test & Measurement

Sensirion has launched its new calibrated and ISO 17025-certified temperature and humidity and temperature sensors. These sensors allow customers to deliver cost-efficient GDP-compliant supply chain monitoring of drugs, vaccines and perishable goods.

The STS32 and STS33 are the company's new high-accuracy ISO 17025-certified digital temperature sensors optimised for cold and frozen chain applications. Both rely on CMOSens Technology, facilitating increased computational power, reliability and enhanced accuracy specifications compared to predecessors. Their functionality incorporates enhanced signal processing, two distinct and user-selectable I2C addresses and communication speeds of up to 1MHz. The DFN package has a footprint of 2.5mm x 2.5mm2 while retaining a height of 0.9mm. Every sensor is identified by its unique serial number and is furnished with an ISO 17025-accredited calibration certificate. The calibration certificate includes three temperatures, -30C, 5C and 70C. As well as the certified temperature sensors, the company introduces the SHT33 humidity and temperature sensor as the new flagship of this certified sensor family. The sensor is based on the SHT3x series, providing the highest accuracy and quality standards combined with ISO 17025-certified temperature sensing on one chip.

“As the first ISO 17025-accredited semiconductor company in the world, we are able to offer customers this disruptive and forward-thinking sensor solution for GDP-compliant data logging”, says Matthias Scharfe, product manager Humidity Sensors at Sensirion.
