Explore our selection of sensors including encoders, pressure switches, vibration and shock and ultrasonic to find what will work best.
Current sensors for detecting electrical current (AC or DC) in a wire, and generating a signal proportional to it.
Several encoders for converting information from one format or code to another, for the purposes of standardization, speed, secrecy, security, or saving space.
Flow sensors for measuring air and gas flow, liquid flow and liquid mass.
Force & Load CellForce & Load Cell
Force and load cell sensors for dynamic impact applications such as industrial stamping or ballistics, providing a reliable way to measure force up to thousands of pounds.
Humidity sensors are very important, especially in the control systems for industrial processes and human comfort.
Liquid LevelLiquid Level
Float, optical and other liquid level sensors for detecting the level of substances that flow, including liquids, slurries, granular materials, and powders.Level and float switches and weights for measuring the level of substances that flow, including liquids, slurries, granular materials, and powders.
Magnetometers are finding increasing use as compasses in consumer devices such as mobile phones and tablet computers.
Motion sensors of different types such as angular rate, mercury, non-mercury, piezoelectric or PIR sensors for detecting motion in different ways.
Photo sensors for detecting the distance, absence, or presence of an object by using a light transmitter, often infrared, and a photoelectric receiver.
Photo Interrupters
Position sensors for position measurement, either absolute or relative position sensors, linear, angular, or multi-axis.
Pressure Switches & TransducersPressure Switches & Transducers
Pressure switches for on/off switching from a pneumatic or hydraulic source and transducers for converting pressure into an analogue electrical signal.Pressure transmitters for pressure, altitude, flow or level/depth sensing, leak testing and radiometric correction of transducer output.
Capacitive, inductive, reed and other proximity sensors for detecting the presence of nearby objects without any physical contact.Proximity sensors for application to car bumpers, for aviation safety, for vibration measurements of rotating shafts in machinery, in reciprocating engines, in paper machines, anti-aircraft warfare, roller coasters, conveyor systems and touch screens on mobile devices.
Temperature sensors such as resistance temperature detectors, switches and thermocouples for measuring the temperature of a medium.
PTC thermistors used as current-limiting devices for circuit protection, as timers in the degaussing coil circuit of most CRT displays and as heaters in automotive industry. NTC thermistors used as resistance thermometers in low-temperature measurements, as inrush-current limiting devices in power supply circuits, in automotive applications, and to monitor the temperature of an incubator.
Ultrasonic sensors such as piezoelectric sensors for measuring wind speed and direction, fullness of a tank and speed through air or water.
Vibration & ShockVibration & Shock
Vibration and shock sensors for monitoring the condition of rotating machinery, calculating balance and bearing issues before they become costly and time-consuming problems.

Ideal for typical domestic cleaning tasks like cleaning of patios / paths, stairways and vehicles.
