Jobst Technologies

Specialists in biosensors, micro systems technology and electrochemical analytics.


Develop thermal infrared emitters, material detections and spectroscopy.


Leading manufacturer of pressure, strain and displacement sensors.




Active and passive temperature sensors available as standard and customised. Providing a wide measuring range, long-term stability and high accuracy.


Thermal gas flow and liquid flow sensors and modules. Delivering a large dynamic range, high sensitivity as well as long-term stability.


Available as adaptable humidity modules and humidity elements. These sensors have excellent accuracy and high chemical resistance for capacitive humidity measurement.


Sensors for high accuracy, conductivity measurement with high chemical resistance. Also available with an optional integrated temperature sensor for optimal accuracy.


Single or multiparametric measurement including glucose, lactate, glutamine, glutamate. Exceptional long-term stability allows for continuous monitoring or use in an analyser mode.


For use in devices necessitating a small but accurate heat source with precise temperature control.

Can be customised to fit specific application requirements.

Thermal infrared emitters

Miniaturized infrared sources in SMD housing (HISsmd series)

For use in miniaturized gas sensors.

Low energy consumption, high efficiency and small size make them a perfect fit for portable and battery powered applications.

Black-body infrared sources in TO39/TO5 package (HISbasic series) 

High efficiency and optical output power is achieved in these emitters by using an integrated gold-plated reflector to direct radiation emitted from the rear to the front.

High-power infrared sources in TO-8 housing (HISpower series)

These emitters achieve maximum efficiency by using an integrated gold-plated reflector to direct radiation emitted from the rear to the front through the housing window.

 “Their versatile products enable them to support so many sectors including automotive and transportation, electric vehicles, aerospace, medical to name just a few. We’re looking forward to collaborating with them to find our customers the best sensor solutions for their projects
