With nearly 50 years of industry experience, elobau is one of the world’s foremost suppliers of contactless sensor technology devices. Starting with the design of a magnetic proximity switch through a reed contact basis for a hay distribution system in 1972, elobau has remained true to the advantages that contactless sensor technology provides to industries throughout the world. We can continue to produce robust reed contacts that require no power supply and can be integrated into the electronic communication of machines and off highway vehicles.
