2018 Hermes Award won by world’s first self-calibrating thermometer

28 April 2018

Endress+Hauser has won this year’s Hannover Messe Hermes technology award for its iTHERM TrustSens self-calibrating temperature probe. 

The compact thermometer iTHERM TrustSens is designed for hygienic and aseptic applications found in the food & beverage industries. With automated and fully traceable self-calibration during production, it eliminates the risk of undetected non-conformities, resulting in maximum product safety and process efficiency.

The company’s Heartbeat Technology allows for continuous device diagnostics and verification without interruption of the process.

iTHERM TrustSens relies on the Curie point physics principle – the magnetic properties of a material abruptly change at a specific temperature point which is determined for the reference sensor. As soon as the temperature falls below this value both sensors are adjusted. Because the Curie point remains constant, the reference sensor as a master provides a stable comparison value. The probe can therefore calibrate itself each time the system is cleaned or sterilized a big benefit in both food & beverage and life sciences applications.
