Our sensors are based on different technologies, depending on intended use.
Potentiometers with conductive plastic is a cost-effective and simple technology. They are suitable for cost-sensitive products in applications where other electronic devices fail, such as in high temperatures. Potentiometers are also very easy to use and are available as cylinder sensors, linear sensors, and rotary sensors.
Hall effect technology is used in both rotary and linear sensors. Hall effect sensors offer very versatile and robust solutions. They are often used in industrial vehicles, such as forest machinery, forklifts, loaders, mobile cranes, etc. Many of our custom-design sensors are based on Hall effect technology and come with a wide range of electronic and mechanical features.
In cylinder sensors, we also use inductive and magnetostrictive technology. Inductive cylinder sensors have a compact design with small dead zones, meaning that the total mechanical length is close to the active electrical stroke, and the sensor probe has an operating temperature ranging from -40°C to 155°C. Magnetostrictive cylinder sensors are available in a wide range of mechanical and electrical specifications. The have a very long lifetime and excellent measuring accuracy.
