For the international patent application "sensor and method for detecting measurement variables and physical parameters" the international test procedure was succesfully completed. The german Patent DE 101 15 715 B4 has been granted on 10/14/2004 This measuring method is already used in the new vacuum tranmitter VSP 62 (Thyracont): The time for the temperature rise of the measuring filament up to a certain threshold is a measure for the pressure in the environment of the filament. 

This procedure can be transferred also for measuring other physical values. Concepts for this are already existing, please contact me, if you are interested.
