Unique Pressure Sensor Technology A Revolution In Itself

Superior Sensor Technology unveils NimbleSense, a breakthrough, application specific, pressure sensor technology for industrial, medical and automotive applications. The NimbleSense architecture is an integrated platform combining advanced piezoresistive sensing elements, an analog signal path, processing intelligence, and proprietary integration techniques to create the industry's highest performing sensor solutions. According to its creator, NimbleSense-based solutions will dramatically reduce sensor inventory requirements and improve the reliability and performance of pressure sensor technology in mission critical equipment.

 

Superior Sensor Technology co-founders, Jim Finch, CEO and Tim Shotter, CTO, established the company in October 2016 with the intention of offering performance enhanced Application Specific Sensors targeting high-performance, cost-focused industrial HVAC and medical equipment. "Up to now, most of the innovation for pressure sensors has been targeted to reduce cost, with limited sensor performance improvements and essentially no emphasis on improving system performance, creating a technology gap for the industrial HVAC and medical equipment markets," commented Finch. "Our company's objective is to revolutionize the high performance, pressure sensor market, providing manufacturers with solutions that will significantly enhance sensor and system level performance, reduce design complexity, lower manufacturing and installation costs of HVAC equipment and improve the reliability of life critical medical equipment during therapy cycles."
