Selecting the right Sensor for your application is no easy task. There is no real industry standard on how you go about selecting your product. Other challenges you may encounter include finding compatible instrumentation or requiring a non-standard product that could increase delivery time.
How To Guides – Futek
Even after you pick the right sensor, it will not give you satisfactory results if it is installed incorrectly. It is also important to find a sensor manufacturer that has the experience to support your needs before and after the sale. That’s why we provided some useful tips on how to select a Load Cell, Torque Sensor, Pressure Sensor or when you’re looking to build a Sensor System Solution.
