Available sensors include rotary encoders and linear position sensors for detecting position and speed; sensors for detecting proximity, pressure, temperature, level, flow, current and voltage; and limit switches. With discrete or analog outputs, these sensors are critical to automating any machine or process.
A common function of a control system is detecting the presence of an object, or measuring a process variable. Sensors and sensing technologies are available to satisfy a wide range of usages, environments and accuracies needed in industrial and commercial applications.
Use these optical encoders for your motion control applications or with our PLC high-speed counter modules and our Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) with encoder feedback.
Inductive sensors detect metallic objects. IP69K sensors are rated for harsh duty (food grade) applications; new metal face and rectangular proximity sensors offer more options.
Inductive sensors detect metallic objects, while capacitive sensors detect all other materials.
More M12 and M18 sensors, some with IO-Link compatibility
Photoelectric, laser, fiber optic and fork sensors allow non-contact detection of objects using red or infrared light, or lasers. Color and contrast sensors are also available.
Area Sensors are multi-beam, through-beam sensors used to sense wide areas. MD area sensors are available in basic and advanced versions
Ultrasonic proximity sensors are ideal for applications in which the sensed object is made of clear, transparent or varying surface color materials.
ProSense pressure switches and pressure sensors are designed to monitor system pressure in hydraulic and pneumatic applications and vacuum systems.
Temperature switches, sensors, transmitters, thermowells, and thermocouples provide accurate temperature monitoring and control.
Rotating paddle switches
Level sensors monitor the level of liquids, pellets, powders, and other similar products in tanks and process systems. Available are:
Flow switches, transmitters, flow meters, thermal flow sensors and vortex flow sensors monitor liquid media and provide reliable flow detection.
Performance AC and DC current sensors offer outstanding features, flexibility and durability at incredible prices.
Ground fault sensors help protect people, products, and processes from damage that can be caused by ground fault conditions.
Our limit switches feature the most popular actuator styles (plungers, short and adjustable levers with rollers, and steel and plastic rods) and a wide variety of cable entry options.
Magnetostrictive linear position sensors
Linear position sensors attach to an object or piece of machinery and translate the linear position to an electrical signal proportional to the linear displacement of the object. Available linear position sensors include:
