Product overview

Individual sensor solutions

Since elobau manages the entire development and production process in-house, exclusive and individual solutions can be manufactured efficiently and to a high quality standard. Contact us if you can’t find the right product in our standard range, and we will work to find a solution that suits your requirements.

In-house development, prototyping and production

Some industries, for example machine construction, have unique requirements that commercially available sensors cannot solve. In order to offer individual solutions while maintaining “made in Germany” standards, elobau controls and manages all services in-house. The in-house process includes mechanical construction, design, development of hardware and software, prototyping and extensive testing of materials and durability.
