The hyper-elastometric rubber displacement sensors from Elastisense operate based on capacitive measurement principle. These rubber-type sensors are robust and mechanically flexible to accurately measure both linear and off-axis movement. Their highly elastic design offers an inherent ability to resist shock, vibration and installation misalignment. The sensors can be easily installed without the need to hire complicated or precautionary mechanics.
Rubber displacement sensors can be used as a standalone sensor or part of a sensor system when daisy-chained with similar sensors. They can interface with a wide range of industrial computers and are capable of performing high-speed sampling for dynamic applications. These sensors have been previously used in the 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.
