A Belgian company has developed a small, clip-on and low-cost wire current sensor, that is easy to install, and reliably detects small DC (and AC) currents. The technology is fit for demanding environments, and the sensor is easily redesigned to fit many applications. Current designs are aimed at the automotive aftermarket. The company is looking for industrial partners in other technological sectors, and offers dedicated design for the customers' application and subsequent production.
A Belgian company, with production facilities in Eastern Europe, has developed a clip-on current sensor that performs a contactless and thus non-intrusive measurement of low DC (and AC) currents.
The technology is fit for demanding environments (noise, vibration, dust, temperature, ...), and the sensor is easily redesigned to fit many applications. The current design is aimed at the automotive aftermarket. Technological feasability has been establised and a patent application is filed.
The company now wants to broaden the application portfolio of the developed sensor technology. It is therefore interested in meeting industrial partners in other technological sectors looking for a simple and cost-effective current sensor solution. The company offers the design and testing of custom sensors to the requirements of the customers' applications, and also provides the subsequent volume manufacturing.
The company is part of a large industrial group, and has more than 30 years of experience in the field of automation and control of industrial production machines in demanding environments. Thanks to this, the company owns and has access to state-of-the-art development, production and testing facilities, including complete traceability for quality assurance.
The clip-on design allows for easy installation on existing cabling, enabling easy retrofitting/upgrading of existing installations. The sensor is highly sensitive, so that it can detect small AC and DC currents in a reliable way without calibration. The design is such that it can be easily adapted to specific applications, and produced at low cost in large quantities.
Partner expertise sought:
- Type of partner sought: designers, integrators and manufacturers of electrical/electronical systems
- Specific area of activity of the partner: any sector requiring the reliable detection of small currents, e.g. automotive, home & office automation, embedded control systems, industrial and aerospace equipment, energy management systems, ...
- Task to be performed by the partner sought: specification of sensor requirements for their applications, testing of the designed sensor in the application, integrate sensor in system design
