At this year’s Drives and Controls exhibition, visitors will have the opportunity to view the latest sensor technologies from Micro-Epsilon, including non-contact eddy current and laser displacement sensors, infrared temperature sensors, thermal imaging cameras and draw wire sensors.
Draw-wire sensors are suitable for applications with large measuring ranges or small sensor dimensions and where a low-cost solution is required.
Micro-Epsilon has published a brochure for the automotive industry, which includes 28 application examples of how the company’s sensors and measurement systems are benefiting customers.
Micro-Epsilon will provide high-precision sensors and measurement systems for the project that will be used throughout the testing, production and operational stages.
Micro-Epsilon produces a range of sensors, measurement equipment and systems. This guide is designed to help users to decide which products would be best for a particular application.
