Heraeus Nexensos, our partner for high-quality platinum thinfilm sensors

Heraeus Nexensos was founded in 1851 and is headquartered in Hanau, Germany. With technical expertise and a strong focus on innovation, this family-owned company has become one the world leading technology groups when it comes to platinum thinfilm technology for temperature sensors

Kamet is an official partner of Heraeus Nexensos when it comes to Pt100, Pt500 & Pt1000 thinfilm RTD sensors & micro heaters. 


High precision temperature measurement is essential for technologies to improve clean air and energy efficiency. The portfolio of Heraeus Nexensos sensors consists of highly accurate measuring thinfilm Pt100, Pt500 and Pt1000 technology over the temperature range of -196°C to 1000°C in gases, liquids and solid. Our German partner produces advanced standard and customized solutions contributing to these technologies. These Pt100, Pt500 and Pt1000 thinfilm resistors are sold through Kamet.

A two-dimensional, microscopic variation

Platinum temperature sensors in thinfilm technology can also be described as a two-dimensional, microscopic variation of the traditional ceramic wirewound resistor type. The wire length and diameter of the ceramic wirewound resistors are replaced by a very fine meander structure on a ceramic substrate. The Heraeus Nexensos manufacturing process is largely automated and thus incorporates the latest technologies in silicon chip production.

Industries & applications

In the field of renewable energy, such as energy generation by wind turbines, facilities typically operate continuously. The long-term stability of measurements as well as the high reliability and durability of platinum sensors from Heraeus Nexensos are therefore highly advantageous.


Process technology

When precision and reliability are crucial, or when high currents, corrosive environments or mechanical stress create harsh conditions, or when especially high or low temperatures are involved, platinum sensors from Heraeus Nexensos can be applied.

Cyrogenic applications

Because platinum thinfilm resistors from Heraeus Nexensos biocompatibility, they are exceptionally reliable and safe for use with living cells. Also for cryogenic applications, such as analytical equipment for medical and laboratory purposes, the Pt100 thinfilm resistors from Heraeus Nexensos are particularly suitable.
