The MicroWire sensor is a passive element. It is made of a metallic alloy and a glass coating (1–50 µm and 2–20 µm in diameter). Not only the diameters but also the length makes the sensor a miniaturized component. This and the glass coating mentioned above make it possible to integrate the MicroWire sensor into almost any material.
Essentially it is a magnetized, miniature sensor that provides measurements of physical quantities, such as temperature, pressure, magnetic field directly. It is also possible to calibrate measurements on el. current, torsion, torque, vibration, flow, etc.
