Membership in organizations and associations Sensitec is involved
We are a member of various associations and institutions. The market- and competition-relevant information resulting from the associated exchange of experience is tailored to the specific needs of the electrical industry. These are incorporated into our product developments so that we can fulfill the requirements of our customers and the market.
Sensitec GmbH is actively involved in the following establishments:
The ZVEI represents the business, technological and environmental policy interests of the German electrical industry at a national, European and international level. It provides specific information about business, technical and legal framework conditions for the electrical industry in Germany. Moreover, it promotes the development and use of new technologies with suggestions about research, technology, environmental, education and science policy and supports market-based, international work towards standardization.
Established in 1980 as AMA Arbeitsgemeinschaft Messwertaufnehmer e. V [AMA working group for sensors], the AMA industrial association for sensors now has around 420 members, of which more than 70 are from R&D institutes. AMA considers itself the lobby group of all of those who, in the course of the value chain, deal with technical measurement systems (measuring or switching) for a wide range of applications. As such, the entire value chain of sensor technology/measurement systems is covered, from basic research to manufacturers and service providers and from the microtechnologies to sensor elements, complex measurement, testing and switching systems to actuator technology. Its membership structure and the multifaceted service offer enables the AMA industrial association for sensor technology to offer all firms and institutions in the field of sensor technology, measurement and testing technology a unique network.
The specialist trade fair SENSOR+TEST with accompanying congresses in Nuremberg is now recognized worldwide as a leading forum for sensor, measurement and testing technology. From micro-sensors to complex testing facilities, from ready-to-use components to individual services, the SENSOR+TEST stands for the entire range of measurement system expertise. As a member of the trade fair advisory board, we ensure that the expectations of the exhibitors and the trade visitors are met wherever possible.
Microsystems technology (MST) is an innovative new industry. The Rhine-Main region is home to various different organizations and commercial enterprises that are working on MST. MST is a network of excellence focusing on the topic of microsystems technology, which promotes cooperation between companies and research institutes in MST. The purpose of the association is the promotion of science and research in the application field of microsystems technology, with the particular consideration of conditions and needs in the Rhine-Main region.
The magnetic micro-systems innovation platform, allows companies and institutions, who offer products or services in the field of magnetic micro-systems and so have specific know-how in this area, to present themselves. The purpose of the association is the targeted promotion and distribution of applications for magnetic micro- and nanotechnology, which offer a wide range of applications in different industrial sectors, particularly using microsystems technology and in combination with microcircuitry. The association also aims to promote the application and distribution of these technologies in consultation with research and business, in order to make the innovation potential of these technologies useful in science and business.
The Commercial Vehicle Cluster represents a currently unique opportunity for the sector to develop its profile. The CV Cluster in South-West Germany is a communication platform for all stakeholders who are already involved in the conceptualization, development, production, service and the operation of commercial vehicles, or those who wish to do so in future. The CV Cluster represents a cooperation platform between manufacturers, suppliers, outfitters, service providers, qualifiers and researchers as well as with politics.
Sensitec is a member of the ECPE (European Center for Power Electronics) network based in Erlangen. Leading companies in the field of power electronics got together in 2003 to advance research, further education and technology transfer in this area. The aim is to demonstrate the importance of power electronics to the public in order to increase acceptance by political decision-makers and to encourage students to embark upon a career in this field. The ECPE has established itself as an industry and research network for power electronics in Europe.
Following an initiative of the Federal Research Ministry, Optence e.V. was founded in 2001 as a regional competence network for optical technologies in Hesse and Rhineland-Palatinate. By now it has become an established part of the cluster landscape. Optence e.V. is a platform for knowledge-transfer. It develops contacts between optics companies and research institutions, initiates working groups and expert meetings and organizes joint exhibition stands at national and international trade shows.
