Modern commercial vehicles as we know them today are intelligent, flexible and networked. However, the requirements of robustness and longevity remain the same, because the vehicles and machines are permanently exposed to harsh environments.

Regardless of whether subject to hot or cold environments, high shock or vibrations, water, mud or dust, these machines must function reliably under any conditions. To automate mobile machines, entire workflows or even have vehicles run autonomously, it takes smart sensor solutions.

With application experience in mobile machines of more than 30 years, SIKO provides a wide range of sensors for position, velocity and inclination detection.

SIKO’s range of sensors are specifically and exclusively developed for mobile machines and mobile hydraulics, with the focus on the application itself. E1 approval by the German Federal Motor Transport Authority, high electromagnetic compatibility, as well as shock and vibration resistance, protection up to IP69K and reliable sensors for applications up to Performance Level d (PLd) are an integral part of almost any sensor.

A wide range of interfaces are available to network the robust sensors digitally: CANopen, Devicenet Safety, SAE J1939 or the conventional analog interfaces current and voltage.

SIKO is regarded as a system supplier in the position detection and also works together with customers to provide customer-specific solutions to ensure best efficiency at low process costs.  SIKO underlines this technical leadership with the world’s first modular sensor “Pure.Mobile”, which has been developed 100% for use in commercial vehicles, and promises more flexibility, robustness and security than ever before.
