Numerous sensors for each physical quantity are commercially available today.
Yet, have you ever heard of a sensor that is able to sense more than just one?
RVmagnetics MicroWire is the only sensor that can measure several physical
quantities at once (e.g. temperature + pressure). And what's even better is
that you need just one interface.
If you are looking for solution that off the shelf sensors cannot provide,
you do need a unique, customized solution.
Temperature is one of the most required physical quantity to be measured
across all industries. Seamless, accurate and reliable measurements are critical
across all verticals – from managing manufacturing process to saving
Market offers wide range of solutions including thermocouples, resistor
temperature detectors (RTD), thermistors, infrared sensor, thermometers,
semiconductor sensors, etc.
RVmagnetics offers customized alternative – sensor based on magnetic
principles, able to measure temperature down to 0,01°C resolution, covering
range from –273°C up to 600°C. A tailor-made sensing solution providing a
benefit of its size, range, chemical resistance and on top of it provide also
2. Pressure, Stress,
Along with temperature monitoring, the other most required physical quantity
to be measured is pressure.
Market offers wide range of solutions including strain gauge, piezoelectric
sensors, MEMS, optical sensor, etc.) covering whole range from industrial
applications to laboratory and testing settings (measuring pressure directly and
indirectly also other quantities).
RVmagnetics MicroWire is a passive sensor – element with no power-wiring
that can be embedded into any material – and able to measure pressure,
strain, torsion, bending, etc. And we do not stop just there. MicroWire is also
able to cover structural health monitoring (SHM), detect cracks inside the
material and even play a key role in predictive maintenance of your products.
A tailor-made sensing solution providing a benefit of its size, range, chemical
resistance and on top of it provide also temperature sensing.
3. Magnetic Field, Position in Magnetic Field,
RVmagnetics MicroWire sensor is using magnetic principles and therefore
measures magnetic field, position in the magnetic field, orientation of an
object (product, part, implant, etc.). While the smallest available gyroscope
sensor can still be bulky for your application or wiring of any sensor might be
causing lot of issues – RVmagnetics presents its passive MicroWire sensor
that will help you avoid size restrictions, wiring restrictions or survive
chemically aggressive environment (e.g. concrete).
If you need to sense precise position of relatively big object, such as
tilting of a bridge construction or detecting precise position of miniature
diagnostic device placed in human body, RVmagnetics MicroWire is the solution
you can count on. MicroWire sensors can also be used for triangulation.
4. Movement, Vibration
How import is movement sensing in your industry? Do you work in construction
and you care about milimeter precision or do you work in healthcare where
micrometer precision saves a patient life?
How precise do you need to monitor vibration of a motor turbine or electric
plant? What is the reliability, accuracy and how many devices you need for
vibration control? RVmagnetics offer the first multisensor of microdimensions
that is able to monitor and measure movement changes in micrometers and at the
same time detect change in vibrations in 10 kHz. Both can be monitored with
just one interface. Rvmagnetics sensors can be applied in neurosurgery, through
electricity production, construction to trasportation monitoring.
RVmagnetics MicroWire is able to detect movement or a vibration of an object.
The MicroWire replaces typical vibration sensors like accelerometers or
transmitters and uses a different physical principle.
By measuring pressure indirect measurement of flow can be obtained.
RVmagnetics MicroWire is able to measure flow of any liquid or gas. Given the
size and biocompatibility of MicroWire continuous measurements of human blood
flow are possible. On the other hand – given the passive nature of the
sensor – sparkles sensing of flow in oil and gas industries can be
Thanks to MicroWire glass coating – sensor is able to be present in almost
any type of environment including industrial gases, acids and other hazardous
gases and liquids. While you measure flow, other data such as total volume,
level, velocity and also temperature can be obtained.
6. Electric Current
Imagine sensor that you can simply clip on the electric wire and you will be
able to monitor the exact electricity consumption, online, real-time and with no
need of power wiring. RVmagnetics MicroWire technology enables you to easily
monitor your or your client’s power wires / power cords. Why is it important
If smart sealings equipped with MicroWire will be able to detect overheating
of a power cord as a result of short-circuit, measure loss of current due to
its break, or simply detect any incorrect power wire installation, will you give
smart sealing a second thought? It might be your safety critical part whether
its mounted in a building, car, electronics or elsewhere.
