Sensor Types for Automation and Control
The piezo film sensors provide durable vibration, accelerometer, or dynamic switch elements for a wide range of markets and applications.
Our torque sensors use advanced strain gage technology to satisfy the most demanding requirements for static and dynamic applications.
Our supplier has 20 years of designing and manufacturing vibration sensors based on proprietary Microelectromechanical System (MEMS), bonded gage and piezoelectric ceramic/film technologies. Voltage mode piezoelectric is the most popular accelerometer design due to its high level output and wide bandwidth.
We are a leading supplier of of water level and water quality sensors. Our expertise in media isolated pressure sensors offers unique advantages in creative product development and consistent product performance.
