Contact capacitive sensor

The displacement sensors from Elastisense work based on capacitive measurement principle. The sensors are robust and mechanically flexible which allows accurate measurement of both linear and off-axis movement. This highly elastic design presents the sensors with inherent ability to resist against shock, vibration and installation misalignment. The sensors can be easily installed without the need to hire for complicated or precautionary mechanics.

The ElastiSense displacement sensor can be used as a standalone sensor or part of a sensor system when daisy-chained with the similar sensors. They can interface with wide range of industrial computer and are capable of performing high-speed sampling for dynamic application. These sensors have been previously used in process automation industry for detecting faulty operations of stamping tools. They can also be potentially used for structural condition monitoring, predictive maintenance or industrial R&D.
