Abstract

In the early 1980s Elmwood Sensors, part of Hawker Siddeley's Instruments and Controls Division, was totally reliant on a single 15‐year‐old product range of electro‐mechanical thermostats using a bimetallic strip. Dissatisfied with this insecure situation and uncertain about the long‐term sales life for electromechanical sensors, the company decided that it should start looking for advanced technology substitutes.
