YAGEO Nexensos

Our partner for high-quality platinum thin film sensors

We are proud to be the official YAGEO Nexensos GmbH partner in supplying Pt100, Pt500 and Pt1000 thin film RTD temperature sensors. Yageo Nexensos delivers exceptional quality elements with an overall temperature range of -196°C to 800°C.

YAGEO is since 2023 owner of what was previously Heraeus Nexensos. YAGEO Nexensos GmbH continues the strong focus on innovation and quality of platinum thin films Heraeus Nexensos was known for.

YAGEO Nexensos also supplies a range of surface mount devices (SMD), which are specialized thin film sensors designed for fully automated placement on a printed circuit board (PCB).

Thin film sensors can be described as a two-dimensional miniature version of a traditional wire wound RTD. The length and diameter of the wirewound resistors are replaced by a very fine platinum layer on a ceramic substrate. The YAGEO Nexensos manufacturing process is largely automated and incorporates the latest production technologies.

Thin film RTD sensors are widely used in applications where high accuracy, reliability and quick response times across a range of temperatures are essential. The sensors are shockproof, adding to their reliability and durability even in challenging environments.

In which industries are thin film sensors used?

Renewable energy

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 Yageo 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 Yageo Nexensos offer a durable solution.


Because of the biocompatible nature of the platinum thin film resistors, 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 thin film resistors from Yageo Nexensos are particularly suitable.


With the miniaturization trend, accurate temperature measurement in the field of electronics is an extra challenge. The SMD sensors are valued components in a range of electronics, battery packs, hospital equipment and e-mobility where a standardized format is needed for fully automated placement with high mounting density.

Yageo Nexensos is also a well-established name in the automotive industry for all the thin film types.
