Electric Technology



Capacitive sensors work contactless, reactionless and wear-free. Thanks to their high sensitivity and the ability to detect electrically conductive as well as non-conductive objects, they can be used in many different applications. They even detect levels of liquids or solids. In addition to position measurement, further important application areas are overflow protection, dry run protection of pumps and leakage detection. 


Photoelectric sensors and systems use visible or infrared light to detect many different kinds of objects without contact, regardless of their material, quality and consistency. Whether standard or programmable multifunctional versions, compact devices or devices with external amplifier etc., each sensor has special features suited for different applications – with us you find the largest range of photoelectric solutions worldwide. 


Magnetic field sensors are used in particular for contactless detection of the piston position in pneumatic cylinders. Using an electronic operating principle, our magnetic field sensors detect permanent magnets of different strength attached to the piston in all common cylinders error-free. The sensors operate wear-free, are short-circuit proof, rugged and IP67 rated. We also offer solutions for use in welding or hazardous areas as well as for analog queries. 


Ultrasonic sensors detect a multitude of objects contactless and wear-free with ultrasonic waves. It does not matter whether the object is transparent or opaque, metallic or non-metallic, firm, liquid or powdery. Our ultrasonic sensors are available in many different designs, ranges, cone angles and output types. Most of them feature temperature compensation, noise suppression and a connection cable for auto-synchronization

Linear position

Path measurement can be solved with various sensors. The inductive linear position sensors operate contactless and wear-free according to a revolutionary measuring principle. The position is not detected via a positioning magnet but via an oscillating RLC circuit. The product portfolio comprises magnetostrictive linear position sensors for position tracking in hydraulic cylinders or encoders for the tracking of floats as well as draw-wire sensors


Our rugged inclinometers of the Q20L60 and Q42 series capture almost any inclination and can also be used in systems implementing fast motions or subjected to shocks. We offer sensors for angular ranges of ±10°, ±45°, ±60° and ±85° as well as with freely selectable measuring range 0…360°. The following output variants are available: 4…20 mA, 0.1…4.9 V, 0…10 V, PNP/NPN window as NC or NO contact, IO-Link, CANopen


Pressure is one of the most commonly measured values in industry. Whether on presses, cooling circuits or storage tanks — pressure that needs to be monitored and measured can be found everywhere. The extensive product portfolio of pressure sensors from Turck offers solutions for industrial applications and mobile equipment. Various different process connections, output signals and a huge variety of pressure ranges mean that the ideal sensor can be found for any application.


Our product portfolio guarantees maximum flexibility for temperature measurement. The new series TS+ temperature sensors ensure reliable and reproducible measurement of process temperatures in industrial applications. The large number of different measuring ranges and process connections offers a wide variety of options that allows most applications to be implemented without any problems. In addition to the compact temperature sensors, compact analysis and display units can also be connected to separate temperature probes.


Flow monitoring is a procedure that demands a reliable and reproducible surveillance of limit values and flow patterns. Flow sensors detect critical deviations of the flow rate of liquid and gaseous media. Typical areas of application are the monitoring of cooling circuits in welding applications for example, protection against dry running of pumps, as well as the flow monitoring in air ducts and air conditioning equipment. Because of the calorimetric mode the media temperature is also monitored.


Users can utilize the respective advantages of different measuring principles for level detection or continuous level measurement. This depends on factors such as whether granular media or liquids where foam forms on the surface are used. Similarly, special solutions are required for mounting in confined spaces, in areas with explosion protection and in particularly deep containers.
