Sensor-based Controls

Switches or assemblies for triggering electrical functions

Usually functioning on the on-off principle, switches open or close the electric circuit in which they are installed, with actuation always leading to a specific switching state.

Our sensor-based control elements operate contactless and are therefore resistant to wear. They transmit the switching signal by means of proximity sensors upon the actuation of the switch or pushbutton.

Usually combined into one assembly, key switches, rotary switches, and steering column switches are all examples of control elements based on sensor technology.

Because these switches feature contactless operation, they are particularly well suited for settings with high levels of dirt or moisture.
