Welcome to the Innovation Dialog! SENSOR+TEST - The Measurement Fair

The SENSOR+TEST trade fair is a permanent fixture in the appointment calendars of all user industries that require more and more sensors, measuring and testing systems for the development and production of their products. With its efficiency, clear structure and concentration on the essential, it is the ideal breeding ground for innovations. Scientists and developers from all over the world are at your disposal with concentrated consulting competence to work out the optimum solution for your task together with you.

In the various congress and forum presentations you can refresh your specialist knowledge and experience technical developments in greater depth. The SENSOR+TEST offers the world's most comprehensive range of technical solutions for measuring, testing and monitoring tasks in all industries.

The SENSOR+TEST is the most modern and complete performance and innovation show from sensor to evaluation.

Discover what the SENSOR+TEST 2021 has to offer:

Special Topic "Sensor and Measuring Technology for Condition Monitoring"

Monitoring the condition of devices, machines, and systems is the supreme discipline in sensor and measuring technology. These tasks supply data, analyze signals, and diagnose causes for deviations from the normal operating status.

With the special topic "Sensors and Measurement Technology for Condition Monitoring", the SENSOR+TEST 2021, which will take place from 4-6 May 2021 in Nuremberg, Germany, will show the latest developments from intrinsically safe sensors to highly sophisticated measurement systems that adapt independently to their monitoring task thanks to artificial intelligence.

SMSI 2021 - Sensor and Measurement Science International

For the first time the new international congress SMSI 2021 - Sensor and Measurement Science International will take place. SMSI 2021 replaces the scientific AMA congresses SENSOR and IRS². The AMA congresses will be integrated into the new congress Sensor and Measurement Science International (SMSI). In addition to the previous columns SENSOR and IRS² (then combined under 'Sensors and Instrumentation'), this congress will include further scientific topics: 'Measurement Science' and 'System of Units and Metrological Infrastructure'.

Special Stand "Vision Sensors and Systems"

Image processing requires sensors and systems which will be presented at SENSOR+TEST. In order to emphasize their importance, there will be again a theme stand "Vision Sensors and Systems" at the SENSOR+TEST 2021, where companies and institutes will present themselves with interesting products and solutions.

Expert forums offer first-hand knowledge

In the two expert forums, exhibitors at SENSOR+TEST 2021 will present new developments, products and applications on all three days of the event. More than 60 lectures will be held. Admission is free for visitors.

Joint stand "Young innovative companies"

In order to make it easier for start-ups to take part in trade fairs in Germany, the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy has set up a support programme that covers up to 60% of the costs incurred for stand rental and construction. The SENSOR+TEST has already been part of the circle of qualified trade fairs for many years. The participation in the joint stand "Young innovative companies" is subsidized.

AMA Innovation Award 2021 - And the Winner is...?

On the occasion of the SENSOR+TEST 2021, the AMA Innovation Award will be presented for the 21st time. It is one of the most renowned prizes in sensor and measurement technology and is awarded annually by the AMA Association for Sensor and Measurement Technology. The AMA Innovation Award is endowed with prize money of 10,000 euros, which is awarded directly to the development team and not to their companies and institutes.
