Green sensor thin film Platinum temperature sensors: software from Estonia, hardware from China
Feanor OU signed an agreement for the development of Platinum temperature sensors in Xi'an Research Park.
This technology is actually only available from manufacturers in USA and Germany and saw a rapid increase in the last years, despite the international financial crisis which impacted the automotive and related manufacturing business. These 'green' and versatile sensors have an estreme wide measuring range, from -196 °C to 1000 °C and are employed in aircrafts (more than 100 in each single aircraft), engines, process technology, micro-heaters, gas sensors, bio-sensors and flow sensors.
Feanor will develop data acquisition software and the R&D base. The new plant, which includes a clean room, will be operational in 2011 and will employ approximately 400 people.
