Industrial

In modern manufacturing processes there is a need for engineers to accurately control and measure movement and speed. Position and speed sensing is used in a wide variety of measurement applications so engineers can develop more efficient processing procedures and production techniques. Whether the application is power generation, paper converting, materials handling or offshore, Active Sensors specialist knowledge of the measurement technology required make us the number one choice for control system engineers worldwide.

Hydraulics & pneumatics

Linear position sensors are used extensively in the hydraulics and pneumatics industries where position feedback of actuators and solenoid valves is required.

Process control

Position and speed sensors are used throughout the process control industry for textile, paper and film manufacturing and also in steel and aluminium processing.

Power generation

Linear and rotary position sensors are used in the power generation industry for position sensing and indicating the status of intelligent control valves.

Petrochemical

Position sensors are used throughout the petrochemical industry for position sensing in intelligent control valves in refineries to shut down valves in oil field production.

Material handling

Position sensors are used extensively in the material handling industry for position feedback of actuators on lift trucks and telehandlers.

Motion platforms

Our linear and rotary position sensors are used widely in the motion simulation industry from monitoring the actuator position on moving platforms.

Robotics

Position sensors are used throughout the robotics industry for position feedback of animatronic characters and the control of robot arms.

Plastics & rubber

Linear position sensors are used extensively in the hydraulics and pneumatics industries where position feedback of actuators and solenoid valves is required.
