Sensata Technologies Holding N.V., through its subsidiaries, operates as an industrial technology company worldwide. The company engages in the development, manufacture, and sale of sensors and controls. The company produces a range of sensors and controls for applications, such as thermal circuit breakers in aircraft, pressure sensors in automotive systems, and bimetal current and temperature control devices in electric motors. The company’s sensors are customized devices that translate a physical phenomenon, such as pressure or position, into electronic signals that microprocessors or computer-based control systems could act upon. The company’s controls are customized devices embedded within systems to protect them from excessive heat or current. The company’s primary products include low-, medium-, and high-pressure sensors, temperature sensors, speed sensors, position sensors, motor protectors, and thermal and magnetic-hydraulic circuit breakers and switches. The company develops customized solutions for specific customer requirements or applications across various end-markets, including automotive; heavy vehicle on- and off-road (HVOR); appliance; heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC); industrial; aerospace; data/telecom; semiconductor; and mobile power, among others. The company has relationships with a base of major original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and other multinational companies worldwide. The company uses a range of manufactured components, subassemblies, and raw materials in the manufacture of its products, including silver, gold, platinum, palladium, copper, aluminum, nickel, zinc, and resins. Segments The company organizes its operations into two segments, Performance Sensing and Sensing Solutions. Performance Sensing segment This segment supplies automotive and HVOR sensors, including pressure sensors, speed and position sensors, temperature sensors, and pressure switches. Products manufactured by this segment are used in various applications, including automotive air conditioning, braking, transmission, tire, and air bag applications, as well as HVOR applications, including operator controls. With the acquisition of August Cayman Company, Inc., the company added low pressure sensing capabilities, primarily tire pressure monitoring sensors, to the company’s existing portfolio. The company’s customers consist primarily of major global automotive and HVOR OEMs and their Tier 1 suppliers. Sensing Solutions segment This segment provides bimetal electromechanical controls, thermal and magnetic-hydraulic circuit breakers, power conversion and control products, industrial sensors, and interconnection products. The company markets and manufactures a portfolio of application-specific products, including motor and compressor protectors, circuit breakers, pressure sensors and switches, temperature sensors and switches/thermostats, linear and rotary position sensors, semiconductor burn-in test sockets, solid state relays, and power inverters. The company’s control products are sold into industrial, aerospace, military, commercial, medical device, and residential end-markets. The company derives majority of this segment’s revenue from products that prevent damage from excess heat or current in various applications within these end-markets, such as internal and external motor and compressor protectors, circuit protection, motor starters, thermostats, switches, semiconductor testing, and light industrial systems. The company’s industrial sensors, including pressure sensors, temperature sensors, and linear and rotary position sensors, provide real time information about the state of a specific system or subsystem, so control adjustments could be made to optimize system performance. In addition, in December 2015, the company acquired August Cayman Company, Inc. and certain subsidiaries of Custom Sensors & Technologies Ltd. in the United States (U.S.), the United Kingdom, and France, as well as certain assets in China (collectively, ‘CST’), which has expanded the company’s product offerings in industrial sensors and power conversion and controls.
