Displacement, Distance and Position Sensors

Eddy current sensor systems from Micro-Epsilon are designed for high performance non-contact measurement in harsh environments. Whether measuring displacement, position, gap or vibration, Micro-Epsilon has a huge range of sensor and controller options to solve your task.


Capacitive sensor systems from Micro-Epsilon provide a modular, expandable and cost effective measurement system for position, distance, gap, thickness or closed loop control in the nanometre, micrometre and mm range.


The optoNCDT portfolio of laser triangulation, displacement, distance and position sensors from Micro-Epsilon is the widest range worldwide from any sensor supplier, with more than 380 versions all supplied from stock!


The confocal chromatic confocalDT measuring system is used for fast distance and thickness measurement. Different sensor models and controller interfaces open versatile fields of application, e.g. in the semiconductor industry, glass industry, medical engineering and plastics production.


Laser distance sensors are designed for non-contact distance measurements: laser gauges for measuring ranges up to 10m, laser distance sensors for up to 3,000m. These sensors are used for positioning and type classification in machine building and handling equipment.


Micro-Epsilon offers a large range of inductive sensors for displacement and position measurement from conventional LVDT sensors and inductive sensors with integrated controller to customer-specific high-volume versions. The induSENSOR displacement sensors from Micro-Epsilon are used in automated processes, quality assurance, test rigs, hydraulics, pneumatic cylinders and automotive engineering.


mainSENSOR is based on an innovative measuring principle, which has been developed by Micro-Epsilon in order to combine the advantages of both inductive and magnetic sensors. Magneto-inductive sensors are frequently used as alternative to inductive sensors and proximity sensors in process automation, the packaging industry and in machine monitoring.


Draw-wire sensors of the wireSENSOR series measure almost linearly across the entire measuring range and are used for distance and position measurements of 50mm up to 50,000mm. Draw-wire sensors from Micro-Epsilon are ideal for integration and subsequent assembly in high volume OEM applications, e.g. in medical devices, lifts, conveyors and automotive engineering.
