Special/niche brands

We also offer highly specialized brands which are sometimes produced by small manufacturers without their own sales presence in Germany.

These are often specialists from outside Germany which provide unique technology for the automation and safety area. This helps our customers to bundle their procurements with fewer reliable sources.

We also develop customized products with design and functional describing in collaboration with our manufacturer partners. 

These are our special areas of expertise:

  • Sensors: Optical, inductive, ultrasound and measuring technology more generally
  • Safety sensors: Protecting workers and machines according to the most recent norms

Datasensing Micro Detector (Italy): A wide set of sensors of all types

Datasensing, previously M.D Micro Detectors S.p.A has been manufacturing a variety of sensors for automation technology since 1991. MD was the first series manufacturer of M18 sensors, which are now a global standard. Since 2022, M.D has been taken over by Datalogic/Italy. Datalogic and Micro Detectors have merged their business under the new company Datasensing S.p.A.

Today we offer all products of this company in Germany. Technical advice and service is provided for you by our field service together with the manufacturer

The portfolio includes:

Photoelectric sensors, inductive and capacitive sensors of all common types, ultrasonic sensors, area sensors for the packaging and wood industry. Optoelectronic safety light grids and switching devices, safety scanners (Sentinel), fork sensors, label sensors, print mark sensors and laser markers complete the range.

A majority of the sensors are certified and manufactured according to standards such as ATEX, CULus, TÜV, UL, FDA and ECOLAB.

Datasensing is particularly experienced in customer-specific OEM construction directly for mechanical engineering. We are happy to support you here.
