Thin Film TechnologySTW manufactures robust thin-film sensors for accurate force and pressure measurement and complete transmitters with thin-film, ceramic or silicon sensors. Our sensors are known for their reliability, accuracy and their ability to function in harsh environmental conditions.

These are used in various fields of industrial and automotive measuring technology, including novel and highly demanding applications.

In addition to the micro-structuring, coating of the thin-film sensor and the required electronics and housing, STW develops product specific hardware for installation and connection. 


  • Precision, accuracy and reliability are hallmarks of German engineering
  • Built for the toughest of environments. For example, we have thin-film sensors for pressure up to 3000 bar and median temperatures of up to 200°C.
  • Extensive customization options including customer specific sensors and complete measurement systems
  • Quality tested by tough international standards – many of our sensors are at IP67 (International Protection Rating) and beyond.

Pressure Transmitters

STW supplies complete transmitters with thin-film, ceramic or silicon sensors.

Pressure Transmitters with thin film sensors

Our M01, M01-CAN thin-film pressure transmitters are engineered for harsh conditions that are typical for mobile hydraulic applications.   

A low cost/performance ratio, the M01 and M01-CAN are pressure transmitters ideal for low cost, high volume production and off highway work.


This transmitter is perfect for high temperature applications with media temperatures up to 392 °F (200 °C).

The A09 is well suited for high pressure applications. It can be equipped with nearly every available pressure and output connection.

Pressure Transmitters with Silicon Sensors

The A07 in silicon technology is perfect for all kinds of pneumatic applications with a pressure range up to 25 bar (360 psi).

The S02 transmitter features a flush diaphragm connection. It is ideal for for viscous fluids or media where agglutination could occur.

The S04 transmitter is for lower pressure ranges, up to 10 bar (150 psi). This sensor is also good for absolute pressure measurement and high temperature applications.

The TS02 is developed for water level measurements. This precise working sensor is completely made of stainless steel.

The L03 is a sensor used extensively by the food and beverage industry. The flush diaphragm and mounting flange SF01 helps prevent agglutination of the membrane. Media temperatures of up to 125 °C (257 °F) are possible.

Pressure Transmitters with Ceramic Sensors

The C01 and C02 are the cost effective ceramic pressure transmitters for pneumatic applications in a pressure range up to 25 bar (363 psi).

Customization Services

STW offers customized engineering services. From the layout of structures and including simulation of the measuring cells, we also design the necessary mounting, connection and housing for a complete, integrated package. The sensors can be equipped with suitable electronic components for a complete measuring system. Read more about our customization services.
