RUTRONIK SMART at Sensor+Test 2017: Everything for smart products

  2017

Ispringen, May 26, 2017 – With its RUTRONIK SMART range, Rutronik Elektronische Bauelemente GmbH will exhibit complete solutions for smart applications within the Internet of Things at Sensor+Test (in Nuremberg from May 30 – June 1, 2017) in Hall 1, Booth 319. The Rutronik research partner, the Professorship for Measurement and Sensor Technology at Chemnitz University of Technology, will present its latest research results for energy harvesting, impedance spectroscopy, and sensors based on carbon nanotubes in Hall 5, Booth 209. A presentation by Andreas Mangler (Rutronik) and Thomas Günther (Chemnitz University of Technology), as part of the “Innovative Testing” forum, will provide visitors with a wealth of information about “battery diagnosis based on impedance spectroscopy”.

Rutronik's trade fair activities will focus on its comprehensive portfolio of sensors, including MEMS sensors, environmental sensors as well as magnetic and optical sensors from leading manufacturers such as Bosch Sensortec, Infineon, Melexis, Micronas, NJRC, Omron, Sensirion, and STMicroelectronics. Complete solutions consisting of sensors, wireless components, microcontrollers, power management and safety solutions, as well as software cover the entire signal chain for applications in the areas of smart health, smart mobility, smart energy, smart home, smart agriculture, smart industry, and smart things.

The Professorship for Measurement and Sensor Technology at Chemnitz University of Technology is a research partner of Rutronik. Both partners are devoted to progressing research in the fields of impedance spectroscopy and energy harvesting. Chemnitz University of Technology will present the latest results at the booth "Forschung für die Zukunft" (Research for the Future) (5-209):

 

Energy harvesting: A wireless sensor system for integration in conveyor systems demonstrates the concepts for supplying power to autonomous and low maintenance sensors. Areas of application are Industry 4.0, environmental metrology, and disaster control.

 

Impedance spectroscopy: Using a demonstrator for the rapid detection of foreign particles in liquids, Chemnitz University of Technology will present the opportunities of a highly flexible methodology for the noninvasive characterization of test specimens. Areas of application are the diagnosis of batteries (demonstrator) and the characterization of materials and composites.

 

Sensors based on carbon nanotubes (CNT): In a demonstration setup, a strain sensor, coupled with a smartphone app and humidity sensors, detects various pressure patterns. The CNT based sensors with their innovative sensor principle enable the measurement of pressure, strain, and humidity and allow tailored, cost-effective designs that are easy to integrate in applications, e.g. in the sole of a shoe.

Presentation: "Enhanced battery diagnosis based on impedance spectroscopy in embedded battery management systems"

As part of the "Innovative Testing" forum, Andreas Mangler, Director Strategic Marketing & Communications at Rutronik, and Thomas Günther, Head of Impedance Spectroscopy at the Professorship for Measurement and Sensor Technology at Chemnitz University of Technology will talk about "Enhanced battery diagnosis based on impedance spectroscopy in embedded battery management systems". It enables an exact analysis and diagnosis of batteries in mobile systems and thus a reliable prediction of their state of health (SoH) and remaining useful life (RUL).

 

Date: Wednesday, May 31, 2017, 11-11:30 am, in Forum Hall 1
