Prime Position for Sensors

Charcroft have been a specialist distributor for the Sensata franchise, offering both Airpax and Klixon brands along with the core Sensata range, for a number of years. Offering specialised technical support both in-house and from our field-based Product Specialist team located throughout the UK, this strong relationship has allowed Charcroft to offer Sensata unparalleled support for the UK market, growing both sales and brand awareness.

As a result of this ongoing positive partnership, Sensata have now extended their franchise agreement with Charcroft to cover three more of its brands. Charcroft are now able to offer Crydom, BEI Sensors and Kavlico, alongside our pre-existing ranges from Airpax and Klixon.

The Kavlico brand covers mission-critical, linear and rotary position sensors used by aerospace OEMs and Tier One suppliers as well as pressure sensors used in the industrial market. BEI’s position sensors, motion control sensors and optical and magnetic encoders are used in the industrial, aerospace, agricultural and medical device markets. The Crydom range of Solid-State Relays and Contactors (SSR/SSC) specialises in applications in the industrial market.

These new brands complement the sensors, switches, circuit breakers and thermostats available from Sensata’s Airpax and Klixon brands, and also serve to extend the repertoire of sensing products that are available from Charcroft.

Alongside the Sensata range of products, Charcroft also offer a wide range of optoelectronic sensors and switches from TT Electronics’ Optek range, such as the OPB9000 and the new OPF352A/350A fibre optic transmitters. We are also a franchised distributor for Fredericks, who manufacture a wide range of precision tilt sensors and switches and inclinometers for industrial applications.

The new brands from Sensata will be on display at Sensors & Instrumentation show in September, where Charcroft will be hosting a stand together with Sensata and TT Electronics. We will have our Product Specialists in attendance alongside representatives from both Sensata and TT Electronics. In the technology showcase, Sensata plan to display their 116CP Pressure Sensor, whilst on the main stand (stand 61), you will find further samples and product literature available. Make sure you drop by the stand and see the full range of products that we can offer. For sensing problems, Charcroft can find the solution.
