The document helps define the hygienic requirements for sensors and provides guidance on how to use them.
For each sensor technology, the section describes the range of application, the design and construction details that have an impact on the hygienic purpose, the correct integration into the process, the consequences of a damaged sensor, the cleanability during the installation. Besides the certified sensor itself, it is equally important to ensure the hygienic integration.
