Instrumentation, Sensors & Actuators(20 companies)
Sensors and instrumentation are used to measure physical parameters such as pressure, temperature, flow and position, and translate these measurements into electrical signals for use in control. An actuator converts electrical signals into mechanical force that creates some sort of action within a machine or process.
