When industrial processes run smoothly and reliably, there are chances that this is partly due to measurement and control solutions from TR-Electronic. When a theater curtain goes up, for example, systems of TR monitor the complex stage technology. People and machines work safely together and the audience enjoys a perfect production. Wind energy plants generate energy with maximum efficiency thanks to optimally aligned rotor blades - controlled by TR solutions. In press lines for the automotive industry, TR sensors guarantee safe forming of the body components. In logistics, TR measuring systems enable smooth transport of goods, e.g. in conveying systems and high racks. TR control and measuring modules control and monitor pumps for drinking water supply, regulate correct feeding of pellets in wood-fueled installations or help to detect faults in a punching machine at an early stage.
For all of these and other applications TR-Electronic supplies the right rotary encoders, linear encoders and drives – as high-quality standard products or customized solutions.
