About SMARTEC bv and SMARTEC s.a.r.l.
HISTORY OF THE TEMPERATURE SENSOR
Almost 20 years ago, Smartec bv was born out of a
laboratory concept, when a temperature sensor was developed at the
Delft University of Technology. This digital sensor proved to be more
accurate and stable than the digital temperature sensors that were on
the market at that time. The Smartec temperature sensors do not need
calibration and they prove to be extremely stable and reliable.
A very strong feature is the
possibility to measure with a resolution of 0.005 Kelvin, without any
extra effort. Specifications that are still valid now, more than 15
years later. Since 1992 millions of sensors have been sold worldwide.
The concept of the company was very new in those days because all
production was organised on a partnership base. Smartec built up
strategic alliances with first class companies like the semiconductor
companies in the Far East as well as with European companies. These
alliances have led to long-term partnerships, excelling in close
cooperation in research and development, not only with Smartec but also
with numerous Universities of Technology all over Europe.
After the introduction of the digital temperature
sensor we were glad to offer the market our humidity and infrared
sensor as well as a whole range of pressure sensors.
The latest successful step in the Smartec
history was made by launching the Universal Transducer Interface (UTI),
a family of interface chips that can interface and digitise all kinds
of sensor signals. For measuring low value capacitances with an
resolution of more than 15 bits, this chip is the best in the world.
The device is in full production and millions of UTI's and many types
of custom-made derivations along with it, have found their way to the
SMARTEC IN FRANCE
For more than a decade the manufacturing company
SMARTEC bv in the Netherlands has been extending its sales network, and we are proud to say that we are represented in more than 20 countries. SMARTEC s.a.r.l.
was founded in the year
2000 in France, as a European distributor, highly specialised in
Smartec products. Originally Smartec s.a.r.l. was created to serve the French market
in particular, but after the introduction of the Euro and the
disappearance of the European borders, Smartec s.a.r.l. successfully
extended it's activities into other European countries.
