Sensor Expertise

Mathematics, engineering and experience

From mapping wave heights to measuring twelve complex geometries on a thread, one characteristic that all projects share is that the requirements for the sensor-based system we have built - or have been asked to build, are rarely the same. In addition, technologies change, as do required conditions for operation.

Building upon our quarter century of experience, the challenges brought to us have helped develop our expertise with laser-based, ultrasonic, piezoelectric, electromagnetic and infrared technologies. We know how to balance proven application and performance characteristics of existing sensor types with the pursuit of knowledge to develop and build the next generation of sensors.

It is this sensor expertise that sets Qi2 apart.

    On our Horizon – Expansion of Microwave Application

    Qi2 regards microwave NDT as an important frontier with great growth opportunities and is collaborating with research institutes, federal government agencies, and industries to promote new applications. Our successfully executed projects include:
    • On-line track gauge measurement sensor development for high-speed railway
    • On-machine engine blade monitoring system development for simultaneous measurement of blade clearance, blade rotary speed, and vibration.
    Qi2 looks forward to collaborating with any parties to build a long-term productive relationship in microwave NDT.
