IDM Instruments distibute miniature sensors for use in consumer goods.

Photograph of a variety of consumer goods containing miniature sensorsWhether it’s an altimeter built into a wearable band to measure how many steps we climb each day, or a sports watch charting the ascent up one of the world’s highest mountain peaks, our miniature sensors are used to convey critical information for the dashboard of our daily lives.

Dive computer sensors help provide safety in leisure activities, while our piezo film enables your bed to monitor your heart rate, breathing and even how well you sleep.

We’ve been making sensors for wearables before there were wearables. The IDM Instruments team have technical skill in miniaturization, low power consumption, and high-performance.

That’s why out sensors are in harsh environments, from the world’s highest parachute jump to the deepest dive.
