Founded in 2016 to bring application specific sensors to industrial, medical & HVAC markets
The industry is ready for a new wave of innovation!
Our focus is on better overall sensor performance and unique system features to optimize user experience. The team has expertise bringing innovative solutions to these challenging markets and building successful businesses.
We chose to be based in Northern California’s Silicon Valley region, not only to draw upon great local talent, but perhaps more importantly to build a unique, highly driven, customer centric corporate culture.
Our mission is to provide products that are truly impactful to our customers with unsurpassed attention to detail. We ask ourselves, how will our products help our customers grow revenues, improve profits and expand their markets? We judge our successes based on these metrics. We believe that everything matters – All aspects of the company must be closely aligned from product realization to supply chain management, manufacturing, sales, and technical support, with the goal to maximize overall efficiency and produce the best products possible.
Superior Sensor Technology believes that ensuring our products meet the industry’s highest levels of quality is core to building a successful business. Quality and reliability must be built into the culture from the start, considered in every system used within the company and carefully measured along the way to ensure issues are caught early in the development process and promptly fixed to avoid any impact in the final product.
Everything we do as a company must create value to our customers
We ask ourselves the following questions:
1) How do our sensors help customers win additional business or increase margins?
2) Do our products enable customers to add differentiated features to their systems?
3) Are we great to work with? Do our customers value the interactions and find the provided information useful?
Customers should expect:
Expert initial contact – Deal immediately with our technically minded, experienced sales and application teams.
Global reach – Local and global support through our distribution and sales networks.
Broad product offerings – Solutions optimized to handle a wide variety of industrial and medical applications.
Easy to evaluate – Easy to source and evaluate products, with detailed technical literature and fast inquiry responses.
Application specific features – Customized product offerings, improving application fit and overall system performance.
Long term focus – Not only do our products provide long-term, robust solutions, but our support extends over the many years needed to match lengthy system life cycles.
Unique differentiated product roadmap – Support customers in developing new generations of systems with differentiating pressure sensor features and performance improvements.

Superior Sensor Technology is committed to protecting the environment by minimizing the amount of hazardous substances in our devices.
We strive to meet the highest quality standards in the industry by working closely with customers and suppliers to ensure our products and services comply with industry environmental and social responsibility standards, including compliancy with EU RoHS, EU REACH and Conflict Minerals.
Restriction of Hazardous Substances
The goal of the RoHS directives are to reduce the content of harmful substances in materials and products. These usage reductions are aimed to make electronics manufacturing safer at every stage of the electronic device life cycle. RoHS 1 was adopted in February 2003, becoming effective on July 1, 2006. This directive identified and restricted the use of six hazardous substances, including Lead, Mercury, Cadmium and 3 others, in electronic and electrical equipment. RoHS 2 was added in July 2011 and became effective on January 2, 2013. This second directive added four additional hazardous substances to the harmful list and focused to improve regulatory conditions and legal clarity from the original directive.
California Proposition 65
Restriction on Chemical Exposure Known to be Hazardous
Proposition 65, officially known as the California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, aims to protect California citizens from signiﬁcant exposure to chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects, or reproductive harm. California Proposition 65 obligates businesses operating in California to provide clear and reasonable warnings before knowingly and intentionally exposing Californians to chemicals that are listed in Proposition 65 List.
Regulation of Very High Concern Chemicals
The goal of the European Union REACH (EC1907/2006) regulation is to improve the protection of human health and the environment through better and earlier identification of very high concern chemical substances. This regulation encompasses four distinct processes; registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals. REACH came into effect on June 1, 2007 with various phases defined over the next decade. It also established the European Chemicals Agency to manage the technical, scientific and administrative aspects of REACH. Based on this regulation, the European Chemicals Agency must be notified of the presence of substances of very high concern (SVHC) in products when the total quantity used is more than one metric tonne (1000 Kg) per year and the SVHC is more than 0.1% of the mass of the object. The REACH regulation applies to all chemicals imported or produced in the EU.
Conflict Minerals – Business Ethics
The objective is to support improved human rights through avoidance of sourcing specified minerals from conflict affected, high risk areas, when those funds are then used for exploitation and human rights abuses. There are various initiatives around the globe to address this difficult issue, with all of them focusing on responsible supply chain management of four key minerals (Tin, Tungsten, Tantalum and Gold) used to fund armed conflicts, then leading to human rights abuses. In 2010, US Congress passed section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act, requiring publicly traded companies to ensure that the raw materials they use to make their products are not tied to the conflict in Congo, by tracing and auditing their mineral supply chains. In the EU, a similar regulation comes into effect on January 1, 2021, drawing upon experts from the OECD to define “Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas.” We strongly support these efforts around the globe to avoid contributing to human rights abuses through our mineral sourcing practices.
