Sensor technology

elobau sensors are contactless, wear and maintenance free, as well as extremely reliable. Our electronic sensors are based on the Hall, MEMS or magnetoresistive principle. In addition to tilt, angle and proximity sensors, our product line includes proximity switches based on reed-contact technology (also for potentially explosive areas), steel-proximity switches, vane switches and plunger switches.


Thanks to our range of standard products, we can quickly and cost-effectively provide customer-specific solutions.


The sensors from elobau offer: 


  • Very long service life through contactless technology
  • Protection class up to IP69K
  • Temperature range -40 °C to +150 °C
  • Large sensing distances and offset tolerances
  • Extremely high resolution
  • Output signals: analogue, digital, single-channel and redundant as well as
    with direct bus connection via CANopen or SAE J1939
  • Cable or plug connection on housing
  • Rugged and compact housing designs in various materials
  • Simple, time-saving mounting

Ultrasonic sensors

Measuring angles and pitch

Tilt sensors

Whether on the platform of a lifting hoist or the fork of a lift truck, the mercury-free N3/N4 tilt sensors from elobau are ideal even in difficult installation conditions.


Special characteristics of the elobau tilt sensors:


  • Monitoring of up to two axes
  • Zero-point calibration via IR remote control
  • Measurement range and up to four switching points can be freely combined
  • Switch-on and switch-off delay
  • Selectable vibration filter and signal delay
  • High repeat accuracy, low temperature drift
  • Mercury-free

Angle sensors

The angle sensors are suitable for detecting rotary motions from 20° to 359°. elobau angle sensors are based on the contactless Hall measurement principle; this is extremely reliable and ensures a long service life.

Special characteristics of the elobau angle sensors:

  • Analogue angle measurement of up to 360°
  • Select between ball or plain bearing
  • Optionally with actuation lever

Angle sensors 20-360°

Angle sensors 30-120°

Position detection

The elobau product line for position detection includes magnetic and electronic proximity switches in cylindrical and rectangular designs. Steel proximity switches, vane switches and plunger switches as well as cylinder switches for pneumatic cylinders complete the portfolio.

Position detection for potentially explosive gas and dust atmospheres

In its extensive product line, elobau offers solutions for applications in potentially explosive gas and dust atmospheres. The proximity switches are designed in accordance with the corresponding standards and directives making them suitable for use in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry and in oil- and gas-processing systems, such as painting lines.

All sensors are approved in accordance with the ATEX directive 2014/34/EU, certificate number BVS 03 ATEX E 126 X

All parts except for part 610 0... are available in category 1G, 1/2G, 2G, 1D and 2D. Part 610 0... is not available in category 1/2G. All parts are available in both the intrinsically safe as well as in the non-intrinsically safe version. Observe the Ex-relevant aspects in the operating instructions.
