Industrial and high-precision sensors to measure travel, pressure, and distance exclusively Made In Germany
As of 2014, Hoffmann + Krippner, Inc. has been partnered with INELTA Sensorsysteme GmbH & Co. KG and PIL Sensoren GmbH. We are now able to offer a portfolio of Displacement Sensors, Load Cells, and Signal Conditioners, as well as Ultrasonic Sensors, exclusively made in Germany for the sensor technology 4.0.
This product portfolio of industrial sensors for factory automation is characterized by a high degree of German innovation. We are proud to offer a broad range of products for automation technology based on highest quality standards for common applications as well as custom solutions.
Our inductive technology product line, like the LVDT-Sensors used as industrial displacement sensors for exact travel measurement, complies with the highest market requirements in regards to sensor accuracyand harsh industrial environments for position measurement.
With our portofolio of force sensors we are able to offer a range of load cells from 0.1N up to 750kN. The inner strain gauge is protected with steel or aluminum housing.
The PIL Ultrasonic Sensors work as proximity sensors for non-contact measurement and are characterized by the versatility for a broad range of applications like fuel level sensing or object detection, with millimeter precision. With this kind of retro-refective wave we can measure and/or detect virtually all materials or liquids.
In addition to our sensor technologies we offer compatible accessories.
Linear variable differential transformers (LVDTs), also known as linear variable displacement transducers, can measure an object’s linear movement by converting it into an electrical signal. With friction free operation and nearly infinite resolution – limited only by the noise in the LVDT signal conditioner and the output display’s resolution – LVDT’s can measure any changes in core position and serve as a critical component in maintaining high-performance functionality.
Load Cells and Force Sensors
Force sensors and load cells measure the load created by almost any object or force, including both static and dynamic. Hoffmann + Krippner offers a wide array of sensors to meet almost any needs, budgets, or specific application requirements. Customization options are available, and the sensors offer unparalleled lifespan and are suitable for use in rough and demanding environments.
Ultrasonic sensors measure the position and distance of objects using high-frequency sound waves. They can monitor objects whose surface structure, material composition, and/or color/translucence might distort readings from other sensors. They offer exacting accuracy with high resolution, optimum precision, long detection range, and very short minimum distances.
Our P-DMS Polymer Strain Gage is a compact, cost-effective way to detect and measure pressure with extreme sensitivity. With no moving parts, the strain gauge can achieve high accuracy and long lifespan, and its compact design eliminates potential failure points with affordable designs.
Sensofoil® Membrane Sensors
Measure linear and rotary position with fine-tuned accuracy by measuring the potential difference against a known voltage. Our membrane sensors offer ultra-flat design, cost advantages, and almost limitless dimensions in length and radius possible to meet any customer requirements. Sensofoil® membrane sensors have a service life between 1 million to 20 million operations and, as an analog sensor, the position signal remains available even after a power outage.
