NEW Sensor Technology
DS-Series Displacement Sensor - New ground-breaking sensor technology, for when the going gets tough!
The brand new DS-Series displacement sensor from ElastiSense is built to last, even in rough environments! The unique high grade silicone rubber encapsulation makes it perfect for industrial applications, where it will often be exposed to harsh weather or rough industrial environments. Add to that a phenomenal ability to stretch and bend in all directions without breaking or loosing its ability to perform, you have the future of position and displacement sensing!
How does condition monitoring sound? Simply always knowing how your application is performing in terms of position and displacement! Or what about Predictive maintenance, where you continuously get information that tells you exactly when it is time for maintenance. That will help you avoid unexpected and expensive downtime, and provide damage prevention, by notifying you as soon as something is about to go wrong. To make it easy to use data for process optimization, feedback control is essential.
DS-series sensors are developed with Industrial Internet Of Things (IIOT) and Industry 4.0 in mind and are thus capable of taking your applications to a new level, where position and displacement sensing is both easy, value-adding and cost-efficient.
The sensors are developed for industrial applications, including Off-road vehicles, Structural Health Monitoring and Factory Automation, but applicable in all thinkable applications where the going gets tough and where data about position and displacement can help secure efficient operation of the application.
The product consist of an innovative, extremely strong, durable and very efficient stretch sensor, fully encapsulated in high grade silicone rubber, with embedded electronics. It is extremely durable and resistant to external influences such as rain, snow, dust, heat, cold, dirt and other environment and weather related obstacles. Apart from that, the stretch sensor technology and the silicone rubber encapsulation, makes it fully bendable in all directions and tolerant to over-stroke and misalignment. The technology is unique for ElastiSense products and provides an efficient and optimal alternative to non-contact or cylinder-based sensors.
To further outcompete other sensor technology, installation, operation, maintenance effort and costs can be substantially reduced as there is no need for special mounting, protection or cleaning of the sensors.
You mount it to your application with two screws, plug the cable from the embedded electronics to your control system in your application, and you are good to go. Couldn't be more simple and easy!
