Dr. Brandt - Partner of ElastiSense
ElastiSense is producer of mechanically flexible displacement sensors based on a ground-breaking sensor technology (capacitive elastomers) which allows measurement of both linear and off-axis displacements.
Unlike piston-based sensors (LVDTs, Potentiometers, and Linear Encoders), ElastiSense sensors operates by being STRETCHED hence no sliding parts are present in its construction.
The highly elastic characteristic makes the sensors inherently robust against shock, vibration, and installation misalignment which allows easy installation without the need for precautionary complicated mechanics.
The capacitive sensing of the sensor allows high precision even in mechanically aggressive applications with an absolute accuracy smaller than 0.1% full scale.

Contact Dr. Brandt-Team in case you are interested to customize the sensors to your special needs or if you have questions how to design-in the sensors. Customization can concern sensors size, measurement range, IP rating, sampling rates, analogue and digital communication, and mechanical fixation mechanisms.
