Marine Technology Reporter

Sensor Technology Ltd. manufactures custom hydrophones, ultrasonic and acoustic transducers, as well as the piezoelectric ceramics at the heart of these devices, offering existing designs as well as fully custom components. With machining, assembly and testing facilities all in-house, Sensor Technology Ltd. is capable of taking customers from concept, to prototyping, to full-scale production.

The custom transducers and hydrophones produced by SensorTech often serve as a critical component in next generation systems for applications including mine hunting, sub-bottom imaging, trawl monitoring, fish tagging and geophysical exploration. Based in Canada, the ISO 9001:2008 registered company exports the majority of its production to customers in countries around the globe. To date, SensorTech has made more than a million hydrophones.
Sensor Technology Ltd. is constantly expanding its capabilities and improving its production processes. In the last year the company purchased two new CNC machines and made huge improvements to its methods for producing piezoelectric ceramic hemispheres and spheres. The results are improved product consistency, faster turn-around and increasingly smaller sizes. The company is now capable of producing piezoelectric hemispheres with frequencies as high as 440 kHz.
