Impact of global chip shortage on products shipment

Due to the pandemic that caused global chip shortage, Broadsens was also affected. Fortunately, Broadsens has allocated resources to stock up the supplies. Therefore, the delivery of multichannel ultrasonic thickness gauge UT200s, multichannel ultrasonic scanner BroadScan D200 and multichannel ultrasonic scanner BroadScan D110C will not be affected in the upcoming 2-3 months.

We especially allocated lots of resources for the popular ultra-low power wireless vibration sensors SVT200-A and SVT200-V,  so that there should not be a problem for the upcoming orders too. Although we were hit hard on the materials costs and labor costs, Broadsens will do the best to keep the same price while delivering the products on time. As an example, our wireless gateway costs increased at least 30% compared to half a year ago. But we expect that the cost will go down when global chip supply stabilizes in 2022. So we decided to keep the same price as before.

In the mean time, the upcoming wireless vibration sensors SVT300-A and SVT400-A were postponed slightly to meet the strong demands for wireless vibration and temperature sensors SVT200-A and SVT200-V first. All Broadsens wireless vibration sensors share the same high precision temperature sensors, which has +/-0.3 degree Celsius accuracy without calibration . The good news is that SVT300-A and SVT400-A will be available for pre-order in 1-2 weeks.
