Geometric SensorsgSENS - precise measurement of length and angles

  • Precise and reliable measurement
  • Harsh environments
  • Customizable for any application

Special Feature: Precision

gSENS sensors detect geometric parameters such as an object’s angle or length and converts them into electrical values. Based on captured values, loads are calculated to guarantee safety according to the safety regulations.
