What Is An Integrated Sensor?



An integrated sensor is the core technology of a sensor without the package. It allows for multiple sensor technologies to be combined or "integrated" into a single plug-and-play assembly. Integrating as little as 3 sensors can reduce leak points by 75%, reduce footprint by up to 80%, while also reducing the complexity and optimizing the end-user's experience.

This animation shows how a piston type flow switch and a valve are integrated into an assembly that also contained: bypass re-circulation, filtration and reverse flow prevention.
