Measuring sensors and switching sensors

Sensors for checking, monitoring, measuring, detecting, identifying and optical data transmission

We offer a wide range of products from the field of sensor technology. The numerous measuring and switching sensors of different functional principles and designs are suitable for a wide range of industries and application fields.



Our Products

Measuring sensors


  • Compact design
  • High power density
  • Maintenance-free
  • Highly dynamic
  • High torque
  • Low moment of inertia


General about measuring sensors

Measuring sensors are used for monitoring, determining position, positioning and sizing of plant components and objects. The sensor measures the data and provides it to the controller in raw format or as pre-processed measured values. We carry a wide selection of technologies and designs of measuring sensors for the most efficient and trouble-free plant operation. In addition, we offer a product for optical data transmission for contactless and wear-free transmission of position data and distances.

Application fields

  • Intralogistics
  • Packaging industry
  • Assembly and handling technology
  • Automotive industry
  • Machine and plant engineering
  • Machine tool construction

General information about switching sensors

Switching sensors are used for presence detection, part detection and object identification. We carry a wide range of switching sensors with different operating principles and designs. The offered sensor solutions work either on an optoelectronic basis, via ultrasound or with the help of inductive or capacitive measuring principles. They output a robust switching signal or are network-capable via peripheral bus systems (I/O Link).
