For the measurement of process data in bioreactors, very small wireless sensors are currently under development to replace the conventional rod probes. The so-called Sens-o-Spheres measure the temperature and in future the oxygen content and the pH of fluids. In order to evaluate the distribution of the measured values within the process, it is necessary to locate the wireless sensors. Because of the small size of the sphere (diameter 8 mm), inhomogeneous ambient media and the size of the reactor (less than 2 m), an inductive locating by magnetic fields with a frequency of f = 13.56 MHz is necessary. Since the behaviour of the magnetic field is very different from that of the electromagnetic wave, new locating methods are required, which are presented in this paper.
