Industrial Sensors

At Variohm we are designers, manufacturers and supply chain partners for a wide range of sensor types and technologies for use within a variety of application environments. One of which is industrial sensors.

What are Industrial Sensors?

Almost all our sensors can be classed as industrial sensors as they are used within professional industries. Generally speaking, an industrial sensor is a little more robust and able to withstand the harsher conditions it may be exposed to.

Industrial sensors are a vital part of delivering required information from one device to another and alerting personnel when intervention is required. Without sensors, many aspects of industrial automation would not exist and far more manual processes would be required.

Industrial Sensor Types

Within the industrial field, a broad range of sensors are used. Anywhere that there is a variable that requires something measuring, a sensor will be responsible. Some of the variables include;

Industrial sensors are used to analyse, measure, detect and process various transformations within industrial applications. We have a full range of sensors to ensure any aspect of measurement is covered. If you are looking for a specific sensor type please contact us.

Features of Industrial Sensors

The sensors we offer are suitable for use in industrial applications, within this environment, we would expect some temperature fluctuations, a lot of dust, debris and moisture, lots of noise and vibration so it is important that a sensor is able to cope with these conditions. To ensure they are suitable, many of our sensors have the following features

  • Highly robust
  • Resistant to dirt, dust and moisture
  • Hard-wearing
  • High IP ratings
  • High repeatability
  • Able to withstand temperature changes

Uses for Industrial Sensors

There are many different areas within the industrial sector, some of these are;

  • Factory automation
  • Machine automation
  • Industrial automation
  • Smart sensors
  • Industrial manufacturing
  • HVAC
  • Mobile Hydraulics
  • Heavy Duty Machinery
  • Transport Systems
  • Industrial Equipment Manufacture

The list goes on…

Sensors are all around us and very important in a wide variety of applications.
