Together with the Erligheim based company Staiger and the Steinbeis Transferzentrum Mechatronik in Ilmenau the IMS is going to develop a new safety electronic device to continuously monitor magnetic valves using integrated electronics. The valves are able to "monitor themselves" and recognize and signal possible malfunctions before they actually happen. This creates a significant improvement of valve systems in safety-critical areas, such as medical technology, power plants and automotive technology. Within the hightech strategy "KMU-innovativ IKT" sponsored by the Bundesregierung the joint project ValMon is funded over a course of 2 years by the Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF).
