As part of its comprehensive range of industrial encoders and systems for precision automation, Wachendorff manufacture robust length measurement assemblies for use on conveyors, web processing lines, packaging & labelling equipment, and marking machines. Available from Variohm EuroSensor,...

Intrinsically safe pressure and level switching and sensing components

The new sensors will suit a variety of applications across chemical, oil & gas, HVAC, food & beverage and general engineering where ATEX certified approval is a prerequisite. The DPX9I and DPSXU electronic pressure switches, respectively equipped for current or voltage output from a...

Linear position sensors provide high accuracy steering

The Yorkshire based company are particularly strong in an area of agronomics known as controlled traffic farming (CTF) where satellite guidance is employed as a key element to reduce vehicle travel over the field to the very minimum. CTF essentially reduces overlaps and travelled ground in fields...

DesignFlex pressure switches aid DNA sampling process

As DNA data plays an increasingly important role in solving crime, forensic scientists have traditionally taken sample collections by using swabs. However, particularly when gathering micro-particles from rough, porous or smooth surfaces, this has not always been the optimum solution due to the...

ZEMIC Strain Gauges Added to Variohm EuroSensor Product Range

The range covers a very wide selection of standard strain gauges as well as special purpose and customisable versions that suit use for high precision transducer applications, hostile environments, wide temperature variation and more. Standard strain gauges are encapsulated in Constantan foil with...
