Pressure sensor technologies
The practical requirements regarding the transmitter and the level measuring device are extremely diverse and require first of all to choose the sensor technology properly as well as intelligent solutions from a structure point of view.
BD | SENSORS is one of the few companies in the world that manufactures, alone or with its own technical knowledge through partner companies, four of the most popular sensor technologies that are also used in modern pressure measurement technology. We are able to react flexibly to any pre-existing mounting position and the most varied application conditions, and we always make a customized product available.

In the Sensor Technology division, Kistler brings together the main steps of the process under one roof: development of sensors and electronics, design, prototyping, calibration and technological foundations. Our measurement technology experts develop high-performance sensors with exceptional performance to move our customers forward.
The future lies in sensor technology 4.0
Real-time diagnostics, easy network integration, and verifiable measurement results are increasingly present in pharmaceutical production. What requirements must smart sensors meet to facilitate next-generation process technologies?
- Weighing Solutions for Industry 4.0 Applications
The pharmaceutical industry must comply with the strictest regulations and, at the same time, improve production efficiency due to continuous market pressure on prices. So the expectations around the automation of process technology are increasing. Measurement sensors are essential in production processes according to industry standard 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) concept.
Revolution in the processes
Modern, smart sensors with network functions provide a wealth of additional information that helps improve the efficiency, quality, and safety of automated production processes. For example, a pH sensor with integrated diagnostic functions can be replaced just before it fails during an expensive reaction process. A metal detector continuously monitors certain critical parameters to reduce the frequency of checks and alerts users to potential problems.
Weighing Sensors – Troubleshooting
Weighing sensors are used to dose materials into reactors or to check the weight of the final product in applications with exceptionally tight tolerances. If there is any inaccuracy, an immediate alert is sent to the control system, in which you can proceed to solve problems to ensure product quality and process safety.
