Tradeshow Talks with TE Connectivity - SENSOR+TEST 2018

Tradeshow Talks with TE ConnectivityHall 1, 1-321

Tell us a bit about your company and why you are attending SENSOR+TEST 2018?

TE Connectivity is one of the larger sensor manufacturers on the globe. We have a sensor business which is close to a million dollars. We deal with pressure sensors, temperature sensors and position sensors, those are the main areas. SENSOR+TEST is a nice show to meet, first of all, customers, and secondly our competitors. The German sensor market is quite big and it's growing. We see this as a good opportunity to meet our customer base in Europe.

What products are you highlighting this year?

We are highlighting a couple of products from different markets. One of them is a vibration sensor, which is used for condition monitoring. Another one is a pressure sensor, which has it's own display so you can read the pressure directly, and you can connect it to an interface. The third series of products we are highlighting are magnetic position sensors, and they are used for distance measurement, short distance measurement down to the micro level.

Which markets do your products serve?

These products usually service different markets. The first one is a product which goes into the condition monitoring market to measure vibration on machinery and this can be used for predictive maintenance. We are working with the trend of IOT and the new things there. We are trying to offer our customers a portfolio on that range. The pressure sensors go into industrial machinery as well. They have a direct reading, as I mentioned, and you can use them in harsh environments, which is one of our strengths in the company. The position sensors, they are usually used in position machinery for measuring mechanical position of positioning tables, etc.

How can these sensors be used in association with IOT?

We usually have first level interface on most of these sensors, which can be either an analog interface or a digital interface. Many of our customers put this onto their first level transmission electronics, and then signals get transmitted into the internet, into a cloud. And usually calculation is then running in a cloud, and you get the decisions back. Most of our sensors are IOT ready, meaning we have this first level interface ready to be adopted to the internet. And then, we work with several customers in different areas to make sure that the specifications for the sensors match their requirements.
