LOS ALTOS, CA., February 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Instrumems has announced its official entry into the flow sensor market with a revolutionary solution that offers multi-sense capabilities. The company is an innovative spin-off of princeton university research developed by the professor Marcus Hultmark and Dr. Gilad Arwatz. Instrumems was founded to advance flow sensing capabilities and expand adoption to more markets such as medical, IoT and industrial applications. Instrumentems’ product is a multi-sensing solution that is the first and only to accurately measure flow and temperature, including very low flow rates, using a single sensor. The company is also extending the capabilities of the physical sensor using real-time edge computing with advanced algorithms.
Instrumentems’ platform is ideal for low-power applications that require real-time sensing in breathing devices, such as CPAP devices, smart inhalers, and ventilators. Its multi-sense solution is also optimal for thermal management and instrumentation requiring precise flow measurement. Instrumems plans to announce expanded support for additional detection parameters, such as bubble detection and gas detection.
the flow sensor market is estimated at approximately $7.5 billion. The demand for air flow sensors is increasing in the industrial automation and end-user sectors, including automotive, data center, healthcare, medical device, building automation, food and drinks, etc.
The vision of Instrumentems is to bring smart sensing solutions to any device by digitizing data and providing real-time visibility and control of flow sensors in areas previously impossible. Products that require flow sensors face many constraints, including form factor, battery life, cost, speed, and sensor accuracy. Today’s flow sensors are expensive and bulky, making them uneconomical and unsuitable for adoption in consumer products or high-volume applications.
“There is no other combined temperature and flow sensor on the market today that is as small, low power, fast and cost effective as Instrumentems Multi-Sense Flow Solution. Our sensing technology opens the door for a multitude of industries to integrate advanced flow sensor technologies into places previously impractical due to cost, accuracy and form factor,” said Gilad Arwatz, Founder and CEO of Instrumentems “Our innovative sensing technology allows customers to retrofit, miniaturize or reinvent their products to be more competitive and aesthetically pleasing.”
Instrumentem’s management team brings expertise in several areas, including flow control, high-precision nanosensors, fluid mechanics, and microelectronics design and development. The management team includes the CEO Gilad Arwatz, PhD. in mechanical and aerospace engineering princeton university. Gilad is a serial entrepreneur, having founded other startups in IoT, smart packaging and AdTech. Vice President of Operations, Ashish Shahis responsible for high volume supply chain development and project management. Sun Choi serves as vice president of business development and is responsible for expanding into new markets. Instrumems raised $4 million in seed funding from IP Group and PeopleFund.
Instrumems has an evaluation kit to demonstrate its flow and temperature sensing and can quickly customize sensor packaging to suit a range of applications. Interested persons can contact [email protected].
Silicon Valley-based Instrumems is a venture capital-backed start-up, raising the bar in the flow sensor market with its MEMS-based multi-sense solution. The company has introduced innovative nano-sensors to measure temperature, speed, humidity, etc. Instrumentems’ revolutionary sensing technology reduces cost, power consumption and size, enabling manufacturers of industrial and consumer products to adopt a smart sensing solution in any device. Instrumems is an innovative spin-off from princeton university research.
