  • Position Sensors

    Non-Contacting Multiturn - Bourns

    A rotary position sensor translates angular mechanical position to an electrical signal. Rotary position sensors are designed for applications that typically require frequent adjustment. Shaftless designs allow for different engagement mechanisms, such as a customized shaft, a motor control, a human interface adjustment or a mechanical arm position locator. Rotary position sensors can be used in applications where a user needs to control a variable output such as a frequency, speed or volume control. Typical applications include test and measurement equipment, consumer electronics, small engines, robotics, and medical equipment.

  • Proximity Sensors

    Pepperl+Fuchs GmbH

    Inductive proximity sensors are the preferred choice for the majority of applications requiring accurate, non-contact detection of metallic objects in machinery or automation equipment. As a pioneer and market leader, Pepperl+Fuchs offers innovative, high quality inductive sensors to meet the needs of the worldwide automation and process control markets. Our experience, flexibility and customer focus continues to allow us to offer custom designed solutions for the most unique and demanding applications.

  • Proximity Sensors


    The Series 2000 Long Range Inductive Proximity Sensors are designed for Tracking the position of bar, pipe, tube or structural shapes in a rolling mill or process line.Built specifically for installation in the harshest of industrial environments, rated to IP66 with the housing constructed from Marine-Grade Glass Fibre or ABS enclosure, these sensors can be mounted in the floor-pan of the roller tables and other conveyor systems.

  • Register Sensors

    SICK Sensor Intelligence

    The register sensor line complements our wide range of contrast sensors. As specialists in the register control of printing presses they offer an optimal solution to detect marks in tough print conditions with extremely low contrast, complex colorful printouts or at very high speeds. Our range of register sensors also includes an ATEX certified fiber-optic product, ensuring safe solutions in hazardous areas (e.g. when using solvent based ink).

  • Quantum Sensors

    Apogee Instruments, Inc.

    Apogee offers two types of quantum sensors. The Full-spectrum Quantum Sensors feature an improved detector that provides accurate measurements under all light sources, including LEDs, right out of the box. The Original Quantum Sensor is less expensive and great for measuring all light sources except certain LED colors, where post-measurement correction factors need to be applied to achieve accurate readings.

  • Distance Sensors

    SICK Sensor Intelligence

    SICK has a wide range of optic and ultrasonic solutions that measure from sub-microns to kilometers. They solve measuring, detecting and positioning applications using triangulation and time-of-flight modes. Sensors using triangulation are ideal for short-range, highly precise measurement. They can inspect miniature parts, thickness and shape, etc. Time-of-flight sensors work at longer distances, are not influenced by reflectivity or ambient light − perfect for positioning AS/RS, rail cars and gantry cranes.

  • Diffusion Sensors

    BASIC EVO - smartGAS Mikrosensorik GmbH

    Diffusion sensors for room air monitoring are available from smartGAS as the BASIC EVO series. Like all smartGAS sensors, they are characterized by low detection limits, low drift, a wide temperature range as well as a fast response time and low maintenance. The BASIC EVO series is the optimal solution for all applications in which a room air sensor should be reliable and easy to handle at the same time.

  • Force Sensors

    Custom FlexiForce - Tekscan, Inc.

    With its paper-thin construction, flexibility, and force sensing ability, the FlexiForce FSR Sensor can measure force between almost any two surfaces and is durable enough to stand up to most environments. The unique construction and durability of these FSR sensors enables Tekscan to create custom-designed FSR sensors to meet the specific needs of many OEM customers. We also offer standard off-the-shelf sensor products for prototyping and low-quantity requirements.

  • Force Sensors

    Kistler Instrument Corp.

    In universities and industry, for basic research or quality assurance: exact data is always essential in order to measure forces and make processes more cost-effective. Thanks to their rugged design, piezoelectric quartz sensors from Kistler keep precise track of quasi-static and highly dynamic force processes, even when conditions are difficult. Our force sensors can also handle simultaneous measurements of multiple orthogonal force components.

  • Fork Sensors

    SICK Sensor Intelligence

    Fork sensors, which operate using a through-beam design, combine the sender and receiver in a single housing. As a result, alignment is no longer time-consuming. Even very slight differences in light attenuation are detected due to highly focused light emission and high detection accuracy. Easy installation, high immunity to ambient light, and a wide range of fork widths are some of the many advantages that SICK fork sensors offer. Applications include detecting labels or parts on conveyors.

  • ultrasonic sensors

    Contrinex Schweiz AG

    Contrinex ultrasonic sensors provide reliable, non-contact detection of solid, liquid, granular or powdered materials in air, tolerating precipitation, humidity, dust and fumes. Target materials may be colored, transparent, polished or matt; detection is practically independent of the target's direction of travel. Diffuse-mode and reflex sensors emit bursts of high-frequency sound waves toward a target, measuring the time elapsed until an echo is received.

  • Pressure Sensors

    Panasonic Electric Works Corporation

    Pressure and flow sensors from Panasonic offer self contained and separate head types for maximum versatility in your pressure sensing applications. All series' are available in positive pressure, vacuum, and compound pressure ranges as well as multiple port size and output options.
