‘Shapeability’ for custom position sensor requirements

‘Shapeability’ for custom position sensor requirements

What happens when you are making a piece of kit, or even worse have designed, built and launched the machine, and the position sensor becomes unreliable? As frustrating as this issue is for engineers, when using traditional position sensing methods it does happen, particularly for applications in harsh environments. 

New generation inductive sensors from Zettlex, use the same principles as traditional inductive sensors, offering precise non-contact measurement performance irrespective of the operating environment, but offer what Zettlex call ‘Shapeability’, printed circuits on flexible or rigid substrates giving Zettlex the ability to make a sensor of almost any shape. 

As well as replacing unreliable sensors, Zettlex is seeing applications for its technology in situations with cost, weight and size restraints, or where the space available is tight or in an awkward shape.
