Sensors are often vital to product performance, yet engineers often overlook their design, development, and supporting supply chain.
Sensor designs that are weakly matched to their target operating environment will lead to unnecessary product failures, costly product replacement costs, and possible injury to product users. While off-the-shelf sensors may be convenient to buy, their development pedigree is usually unknown. This is a major design risk.
Another major risk during product design is selecting a sensor supplier that may have a weak quality system or supply chain support your product’s sensor. Off-the-shelf sensors are often supported by manufacturing, documentation, or supply chains that are not well-matched to target production consumption needs. Any of these mismatches will lead to sensor inventory shortages.
Unreliable supplier delivery performance will drive costly production disruptions, missed customer commitments, and engineering headaches.
If your product must perform in a harsh environment, the development pedigree of the sensors you specify matter. Ultra Electronics, Energy is uniquely qualified to meet your custom sensor requirements. We would love the opportunity to discuss your sensor applications. We will provide, at no charge, a comprehensive requirements report defining the ideal temperature sensor solution for your product.
