Position Sensors and Encoders for Material Handling Equipment

Encoder products and motion control solutions for cranes and hoisting, Scissor lifts - position sensing, Gantry Crane - speed position sensors

BEI Sensors offers a variety of rotary encoders and position sensors rugged enough for material handling operations in the toughest environmental conditions. BEI's motion control products provide speed and position feedback needed for cranes, hoists and lifts to move materials with precision and accuracy. The environments where material handling equipment operates are almost as diverse as the materials they move. Whether it's loading and unloading cargo in unforgiving seaports or handling material on a factory floor, the equipment requires reliable motion control feedback solutions to do their job properly and safely. BEI Sensors specializes in the design and manufacture of position and speed sensors for a variety of equipment, including hoists, cranes (gantry, harbor, and construction), fork lifts, conveyers, automated warehousing, man lifts and scissor lifts.
