ElastiSense

Our displacement sensors are precise yet mechanically flexible thanks to the utilized ground-breaking ‘active rubber’ sensor technology.

Unlike piston-based displacement sensors (LVDTs, Potentiometers, and Linear Encoders), our sensors can measure displacement while tolerating off-axis shear motion of a machine since the core sensing element is made of rubber and thus stretchable in all three dimensions.

Our sensors and sensing solutions offer robust and reliable measurement of displacement, frequency, and speed, in nearly all applications within industrial automation.

Features

Robust – highly resistant to shock, vibration, overload, and misalignment – made of rubber.

Accurate and repeatable – high accuracy due to capacitive sensing.

Versatile – can be configured to different needs in size, range, and electrical output.

DISPLACEMENT SENSORS

Our displacement sensor may either be used as a standalone unit or as a part of a system together with other daisy chained sensors. In stand-alone mode the sensor requires 24VDC supply and outputs an analogue current in the range of 4-20mA. The output signal is linearly proportional to the displacement i.e. 4mA corresponds to 0mm and 20mA represents the maximum displacement of the sensor. The sensors are available in 20, 50, 100, and 200mm measurement ranges. Other customized ranges are available upon request.

PORTABLE TEST KIT

The Portable Test Kit is designed to enable easy yet precise displacement measurements of a system or tool, with up to two sensors, allowing system characterization and monitoring.

The kit is supplied with two displacement sensors of your choice (20, 50, 100, 200mm) and contains all other necessary sub-components and software, serving as a complete plug-and-play system.

MONITORING SYSTEM

If your system requires multiple sensors, we recommend ElastiSense Monitoring Systems, containing multiple daisy-chained sensors and a controller to handle communication and data processing. The controller communicates with the sensors over a full duplex RS485 network. The controller receives real-time, synchronised data from the sensors, analyses it, then sends information (signals, data, alarms) to the machine controller, operator, or a supervisory controller.

The controller used for this is a standard, versatile controller from National Instruments, from their cRIO Series. It can be configured to communicate with your system with a protocol of your choice, as there is a wide range of corresponding communication modules available.

ABOUT

HISTORY AND BACKGROUND

ElastiSense ApS is a spin-off of LEAP Technology ApS, and specializes in the integration of its patent pending Electroactive Polymer (EAP) sensor solution, specifically designed for industrial automation applications.

ElastiSense received funding from Syddansk Innovation in 2016, in order to commercialize its unique sensor solution.

The founders of ElastiSense ApS have a combined 30 years’ experience with EAP sensors through their earlier work with Danfoss and LEAP Technology, both EAP technology providers.

We leverage from our 30 years’ industrial experience, to engineer our solutions for your specific needs.

Along with relevant academic backgrounds, this means we possess all the necessary engineering expertise: mechanics, electronics, software, modelling, experimentation, and process design, in order to offer unique sensor solutions for your particular application.
