Total solution for weighing, level control stress and fatigue monitoring

Vishay’s Model 178 extensometer is a load sensor designed for force measurement on any load-bearing structure

Take a hard look at load cells, and get a head start on higher process control

Load cells aren’t all alike, and taking a hard look at the differences can put users closer to total control. All weight–measurement functions start with a load cell, so it makes sense that a little difference there can have a large effect.

Senix Ultrasonic level sensors accurately measure diesel fuel for rail applications

From regional short line freight service to coast-to-coast passenger trains, the nation’s railroads depend on diesel power.  With increasing investments in new technology diesel engines and repowering and replacement of existing engines, railroads are poised for achieving greater service and efficiency goals.  Diesel power is a proven technology and provides efficiency, durability reliability and now near-zero emissions, Diesel has long been the technology of choice for moving people and goods by rail.

Stroke measurement in hydraulic cylinders - say goodbye to drilling pistons!

Whether it’s agricultural machinery, construction equipment, or municipal vehicles, intelligent sensors are indispensable throughout the mobile machine market. 

One small sensor helps - Grensmass project

In the Dutch province of Limburg, the Grensmaas Consortium extracts about one hundred thousand tonnes of gravel every week. A quantity that requires an enormous logistical operation. Stopping the process is not an option. And certainly not unannounced. With one single sensor, Hans van der Meer can monitor that risk.
