ElastiSense – Position sensing made easy

Position sensors from ElastiSense are developed with the sole purpose of making displacement and position sensing simple and cost efficient for a wide variety of industrial segments.
We have had great success helping customers within structural health monitoring, factory automation, off road vehicles and many other application areas where displacement sensing otherwise can be a challenge due to mechanically aggressive and harsh environments.
We help our customers ensure full control of their systems with reliable measurement of position and displacement thus enabling effective monitoring, preventive maintenance, breakdown prevention, and downtime minimisation – all leading to savings and profit.
Displacement sensors from ElastiSense are precise yet mechanically flexible thanks to the exploitation of a ground-breaking ‘active rubber’ sensor technology. Unlike piston-based displacement sensors (LVDTs, Potentiometers, and Linear Encoders), our sensors can measure displacement while tolerating installation and operation misalignments since the core sensing element is made of rubber and thus stretchable in all three dimensions.
Furthermore, displacement sensors from ElastiSense are fully encapsulated, allowing them to endure all sorts of weather-related conditions, including heavy rain, UV light, wind, extreme heat and extreme cold. With an ingress protection of IP68, sensors from ElastiSense are completely dust and water tight, and require no special mounting, protection or cleaning, which helps you reduce costs on installation, operation and maintenance, compared to other sensor solutions. All sensor solutions from ElastiSense can be customised to fit your application and control system and provide data in the format best suitable for you.
All in all, solutions from ElastiSense add value to our customers. It is simply position sensing made easy.
