Technology

Regarding capacitive sensors, we can provide you with proximity switches from Greatecs.

Acceelerometers, Gyroscopes, Humidity, Microphones, Pressure, Proximity, Temperature, e-compasses;

Reed technology enables contactless switching. The switching needs no additional energy. We are specialised in the implementation of different use cases in white goods, automotive and industrial applications.

A Hall effect sensor is a transducer that varies its output voltage in response to a magnetic field. Hall effect sensors are used for proximity switching, positioning, speed detection, and current sensing applications.

Inductive sensors constitute the main element to build a search coil magnetometer also known as search coil. These are used in many fields of research: magnetotellurics electromagnetic waves measurement, space magnetometers to investigate electromagnetic waves in space plasma as well as natural electromagnetic waves observations on Earth.

A photoelectric sensor, or photo eye, is an equipment used to discover the distance, absence, or presence of an object by using a light transmitter, often infrared, and a photoelectricreceiver. They are largely used in industrial manufacturing. There are three different useful types: opposed (through beam), retro-reflective, and proximity-sensing (diffused).

Application

Our manufacturer are the leading suppliers in the level sensor field based on Reed or Hall technology. Our sensors are used in tanks and containers for liquids from the food, industrial and automotive sectors. The robust design gives us the opportunity to offer container solutions under pressure and high/low temperatures.

This type of sensor is an elegant solution to non-contact switching. Reed and Hall effect technologies are available as is the modification of capacity and ultrasound; depending on the type of application with or without a Schmitt trigger output. A special form of Hall proximity sensors is the analogue Hall sensor which outputs a voltage analogue to the magnetic field strength.

STMicroelectronics’ temperature sensors include both analog and digital temperature sensor ICs. Both types are suitable for use in a wide range of applications, such as industrial, consumer, medical and computer market segments.

The analog temperature sensors feature low power consumption and good linearity, and can operate over a temperature range as wide as -55 to +130 °C. The digital temperature sensors feature low power consumption, up to 12-bit resolution and can operate over a temperature range as wide as -55 to +125 °C.

Speed sensors are machines used to detect the speed of an object, usually a transport vehicle.
