Endress+Hauser wins Hannover Messe's Hermes Award

This year´s Hermes Award at Hannover Messe goes to Endress+Hauser Messtechnik for its hygienic compact thermometer featuring a self-calibrating sensor for process temperature measurements that meet stringent safety and quality specifications. These are required in sectors such as the food and pharmaceutical industries. The temperature of the sensor is calibrated automatically using a physical fixed point based on the Curie temperature (which is material-specific and has long-term stability) of an internal reference sensor integrated in the sensor. The fully automated inline calibration of the temperature sensor is audit-proof and facilitates regular recalibration without additional processes or system downtime.

The award was presented by German’s Federal Minister of Education and Research, Anja Karliczek, at the official Opening Ceremony for Hannover Messe on Sunday, 22 April.

Dr. Wolfgang Wahlster, CEO of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) and chairman of the jury, said: "Smart sensor technology is a major driver in the next stage of Industry 4.0. With the number of sensors increasing dramatically in a smart factory, audit-proof self-calibration of sensors without system downtime will become a key factor for economic success. This is where Endress+Hauser’s innovative product comes into play, making an important contribution to the continuous process verification and quality control during production that we are aiming for with Industry 4.0."
