Each, even a simple automatics system, a monitoring system or even a single electronic subunit usually requires an appropriate type of sensors. Sensors are source of information about the real world for such a system, its only senses.
- Design and selection of sensors for individual applications
- Measurement of physical qualities process parameters, etc.
- Machine vision systems
- Building signal acquisition and processing systems
- Intelligent sensor networks (including wireless networks)
- Matrix sensors
They have to precisely and with required speed measure the necessary physical quantity and be adequately resistant at the same time. Selection of appropriate sensors for the projected system is often the key factor deciding on its capabilities and on whether it will fulfil its goal.
Regardless of whether it is just a normal temperature sensor or an advanced camera of machine vision, all aspects - from the selection of the element itself to defining its location – have to be precisely thought out and verified. It decides on whether the correct temperature value will be measured and in the case of a machine vision camera – the degree of complication of image processing algorithm.
Quite important also is the economic aspect. Not always expensive sensors from catalogues are exactly what we need, and sometimes they are „too good”, their accuracy exceeds requirements of the particular applications. Why pay for something that will not be used?
In SKA Polska we know how to find a sensor best suited for the needs of the particular project. It is influenced by knowledge of physical basis behind action of many sensor types and knowledge about how the measurement is influenced by particular conditions and how can they be compensated. Regardless of whether it is all about a simple induction converter a „feeling” piezoelectric foil or a IR detector, the team can assembly the whole system in such a way that it measures planned parameters with the planned accuracy. Our company has extensive experience in building networks of miniature sensors and matrix sensors.
