Sensor solutions for mobile automation

Home Engineering Electrical Sensor solutions for mobile automation

TO automate mobile machines, entire workflows or even have vehicles run autonomously, it takes smart sensor solutions.

That’s according to Instrotech, local representatives of Siko, which provides a range of sensors for position, velocity and inclination detection.

“Siko’s range of sensors are specifically and exclusively developed for mobile machines and mobile hydraulics, with the focus on the application itself,” Instrotech said in a statement.

“E1 approval by the German Federal Motor Transport Authority, high electromagnetic compatibility, as well as shock and vibration resistance, protection up to IP69K and reliable sensors for applications up to Performance Level d (PLd) are an integral part of almost any sensor.”

It added that Siko had introduced the world’s first modular sensor “Pure.Mobile”, which has been developed 100% for use in commercial vehicles, and promises more flexibility, robustness and security.
