Phoenix™ development leverages Primes extensive harsh environment sensor packaging expertise with RFID and metamaterial technologies to create an entirely new class of electrically passive wireless sensors for ultra-high temperature applications.
Phoenix™ Ultra-High Temperature Wireless Sensors
Ultra-hot environments (1500F and above), such as that encountered in coal combustors, gasifiers, gas turbines and metal annealers, present challenges not only with electronic components, but any type of cabled sensor solution. For these applications, Prime is developing Phoenix™, a revolutionary ultra-high temperature sensor technology that uses electrically passive metamaterial-based sensor ‘patches’ that can be remotely monitored from outside of the hot environment. By using a metamaterial-based analogy of radio frequency identification (RFID) tags, Phoenix™ is being developed for use in environments up to 3000F.
