All the way with CANbus

Sensor-Technik UK provides CANbus integration services unmatched in the market from conceptual design right through to prototyping and small-batch manufacture

With the recent addition of an in-house machine shop, Sensor-Technik can now boast the capability to create complete CANbus systems from start to finish. The company's engineering expertise spans the complete project, from conceptual design, through component and subassembly specification to prototyping and small-batch manufacture.
Sensor-Technik UK Ltd is a dedicated supplier of CANbus systems, sensors and instrumentation based in Sharnbrook, (Beds GB), and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Sensor-Technik Wiedemann GmbH (STW). STW is one of the world’s major players in CANbus technology, and its CANbus controllers are widely used in mobile plant and machinery. The company also develops and manufactures pressure sensors for hydraulic, pneumatic and food industry applications. Sensor-Technik UK also supplies allied components and systems such as operator interfaces, instrumentation, motion sensors and load cells and from leading-edge manufacturers including Micronor, PR Electronics, Wachendorff, Graf-Syteco, Precision Transducers, Richmond Industries, London Electronics and Datum Electronics.
STW Technic LP is the US arm of this comany.

According to Sensor-Technik UK Managing Director Morten Moller, this capability is unique in the market. “I know of no other company that can boast this complete level of expertise”, he says. “While other companies may concentrate on certain aspects of CANbus systems, such as supplying nodes or components, this leaves the customer with the lion's share of the work, integrating the system and managing multiple suppliers”.

The company's CANbus expertise is built on countless projects based on its ESX series of controllers. But it doesn't end there. Sensor-Technik also distributes other system components such as operator interfaces from Wachendorff and complete CANbus control system and interface packages from Graf-Syteco.

Top-class CANbus hardware, though, is only one part of the picture. Their engineering staff have intimate knowledge of all the latest CAN protocols, and between them have written tens of thousands of lines of CANbus software. When you put this together with the company's systems integration expertise and in-house capabilities to create bespoke cabling and housings, then the company can rightly claim to have the market's most complete capabilities in CANbus systems.

But it doesn't end there. Sensor-Technik's CANbus engineers will see every project through to (and beyond) its end. This includes delivering systems and commissioning them on the customer's site to ensure they work exactly as envisaged and post-sales support provided over the phone, online and on-site using the company's fully equipped service van.
