Custom level sensor
From design to manufacturing elobau has been developing and manufacturing thousands of customized solutions for OEM’s for over 40 years. Our customers include manufacturers in the medical, dental, semiconductor, printing, food / packaging, mobile equipment and consumer products. elobau uses a variety of non-contact technology including, reed, hall, capacitive and ultrasonic. This allows our designs to be flexible and fit a large number of applications. A wide market knowledge ensures our engineers will create a solution that fits your unique requirements.
Our manufacturing facilities are located in Germany and feature injection molding, encapsulation, automated / manual manufacturing cells, environmental / life cycle testing, automated soldering, and SMT pick-and-place. elobau adapts the standard products to fit your custom tank.
Examples of elobau customized solutionsThe model on the left below shows a sensor developed for gearbox oil control for the power generation and truck market. Due to space constraints, the customer required the lowest possible mounting height in addition to a very narrow flange space. Additional needs were a long life and robust construction as well as a rigorous internal testing.
The model above on the right was a sensor developed for industrial ink-jet printers. This was a challenging project, because an accurate analog measurement without having an additional opening for the sensor was required. The solution was a custom hall module on the outside of the reservoir with an internal magnet float system.
