Kompass Sensor Systems unite optical and mechanical sensors with highly integrated signal processing. Based on the measurement of spectral or mechanical properties, they are used for the universal determination of environmental parameters or of forces and moments in a wide variety of applications. By using innovative sensor solutions, multi-sensor platforms and sensor networks, the following goals can be achieved:
- Understand environmental processes
- Optimize the use of resources
- Maintain the quality of life
The Fluorine Tracker is a smart sensor system for the safe and at the same time simple detection of fluorine in solid substances. The detection of fluorine, e.g. in ski waxes, is made possible by a modern, clean and environmentally friendly technology based on optical sensor principles.
The Photosynthetically Active Radiation Monitor is a multi-lambda sensor system for monitoring global radiation. It is used in scientific and technical fields of application, such as agriculture, to characterize plant activity or to provide basic information for fertilizer use. Likewise, additional important information can be collected for solar plants or for viticulture.
The Evapotranspiration Monitor is a complete sensor system for the acquisition of optical properties in the field of environmental monitoring. By using three different sensor technologies (UV-VIS spectrometer, thermopile, broadband photodiode), extensive information about plant activities can be measured, allowing e.g. monitoring of evaporation and transpiration at the field site.
The Water Quality Monitor is a sensor system for monitoring important water quality parameters in free water. By using various optical sensor technologies, several water
parameters can be measured remotely, both qualitatively and quantitatively, such as information on turbidity, nitrate content, temperature and pressure.
The Micro Force Transducer is a high-resolution force sensor based on a novel principle of capacitive force measurement with a laterally movable dielectric. Applications for the
ceramic sensor include force measurement and weighing technology, geophysics and gravimetry.
