Monitoring of mechanical connections in wind power
Monitoring of mechanical connections on wind turbines can be done in 24/7 regime by using MEMS sensors and digitalization. With remote diagnostics, maintenance efforts and costs decrease, especially in offshore applications.
Sensors for hydrogen as an energy carrier or sensors for the energy transition
Hydrogen is considered a key element for the energy transition. Produced in a climate-friendly way, it has versatile applications in industry and mobility, and reduces CO2 emissions. For the safe production and storage of hydrogen, the CiS Research Institute is researching and developing long-term stable joining compounds for pressure sensors in electrolysers and system storage tanks. As hydrogen-resistant sensors, they are part of a multisensor.
