Automobiles Details(HTML)

A variety of sensors are required in a modern automobile, and they must work flawlessly in many different environments. The power unit requires a unit that can resist oil mist, water, dust, heat and vibrations. In the climate-control system, the sensor must quickly and accurately measure interior and exterior conditions to provide optimum passenger comfort.
Shibaura has the wide range of sensors to meet these needs, and can custom design and manufacture sensors to customer requests.

Water Related Equipment Details(HTML)

Sensors used in hot water supply and water service equipment must be able to withstand hot, humid environments. Shibaura uses NS thermistor elements, which provide outstanding moisture resistance.
To prevent electric erosion, our sensors feature the optimal selection of sensor protecting tubes materials—copper, chrome-plated copper, stainless steel and others. Shibaura can also provide liquid level sensors and flow sensors for other water-related applications.

Air-Conditioning Equipment

Air conditioning units make use of both temperature and airflow sensors, which must withstand severe temperature cycles while working in a damp and dusty environment. The airflow sensor is critical for detecting the clogging of the ducts and filters; the temperature sensor must provide fast thermal response, moisture and dust resistance.
Shibaura’s wide range of thermistor sensors for air conditioner use provide all these features--with outstanding reliability.

Fire Prevention and Security Equipment

These sensors can be used as the temperature control sensor for a heat detector fire alarm.

Food Processing Machines and Cooking Appliances

Temperature is at the very heart of microwave oven operations; the sensors used in them must work through repeated temperature cycle changes in humid, oily environments.
Shibaura’s sensors have the heat and moisture resistance and heat response speed for a wide range of microwave, gas and electric ovens. Its temperature sensors are used in the cooking control of ovens, while its humidity sensors are used to control automatic cooking in microwave ovens.

A recent technology for the kitchen is the induction cooker, which provides all the benefits of gas cookers with greater intelligence and higher safety. Induction cookers provide higher thermal efficiency, while producing no hot air, reducing cooling costs and making for a more pleasant kitchen working environment.
The quick thermal response of Shibaura sensors provides for the intelligent functions and safety features of modern thermal cookers. They are not influenced by electromagnetic energy, and can withstand temperatures of 300°C.

White Goods

Today's intelligent refrigerators can provide different temperatures in each compartment: 3°C to 5°C in the main compartment, 5°C to 6°C in the vegetable compartment, -1°C to 1°C in the fresh fish compartment, -7°C to 1°C in the soft freezing compartment and -18°C for hard freezing. Where older refrigerators used only one mechanical thermostat, modern refrigerators are equipped with a large number of Shibaura thermistors to control the carrying temperatures and defrosting functions in the various compartments. Shibaura sensors are ideal for cold applications, and can work continuously through repeated freeze and thawing cycles.

Industrial Equipment

Greenhouses and other industrial applications are a severe test of thermistor sensors, with heat, cold, humidity and repeated sudden temperature changes.
Shibaura thermistor sensors have been designed and constructed to resist heat, cold, moisture, thermal shock and other factors. Highly accurate, stable PSB thermistors are used, providing for a wide range of applications.

Office Automation Equipment

Temperature sensors in copiers and printers have a tough job, required to respond at high speed in environments that are alternately hot and cold, and are subject to mechanical abrasion and vibration. In liquid-crystal displays, cameras and watches, the sensors must provide stable operations over long periods of time.
Shibaura sensors provide excellent heat and abrasion resistance and high response speed, making them ideal for printers and copiers. Chip thermistors provide the excellent characteristics and stability for LCD.


These sensors can be used for detection of the surface temperature of motors, inverters, heat sinks, and more.
