Experience and Innovation
Since 1945, analytical instrumentation has been developed and produced in Meinsberg. Sensortechnik Meinsberg stemmed in 1990 from the Meinsberg research institute and continued the successful tradition at the location Meinsberg in Saxony. The founder of the research institute was Prof. Kurt Schwabe. The team of engineers and technicians combines years of specialised experience in electrochemistry with electrode and sensor design as well as laboratory, field and online instrumentation.
Today the Kurt-Schwabe research institute, which is based in the vicinity, is a strong partner for an innovative connection between research and practice.

Meinsberg Electrodes have been a synonym for innovation, high quality standard and custom-specific design. Sensortechnik Meinsberg develops and produce a wide range of electrochemical sensors for application in industry, water technology and laboratory analysis.

  • pH and redox (ORP) electrodes, ion-selective electrodes
  • Conductivity cells
  • Dissolved oxygen and chlorine measuring sensors
  • Standard solutions, electrolytes

Meinsberg process, laboratory and field analytical instrumentation fulfil all requirements for measurement and process control in analytical technique reliably.
