Custom sensor solutions for T&M applications
Althen is your partner for custom designed sensors and sensor systems for Test & Measurement applications
Sensors, instrumentation and measurement systems for Test & Measurement
We have over 40 years of experience in developing unique sensors, instrumentation and turn-key measurement systems for test & measurement applications. Customers come to Althen because they can’t find a solution for their measurement problem. We like to make the impossible possible.
We are happy to help you with the most suitable sensor or measurement solution for your application. Fill in our contact form or contact us directly: you can find the phone numbers and e-mail addresses of your nearest location on our locations page.
Our solutions go from A to Z
From custom force sensors and load cells, high performance pressure sensors, dynamic torque sensors, custom straingauges, to custom laser scanning systems, position measurement, inclination/levelling systems, and fiber optic measurement systems.
The strength of Althen is it’s flexibility to design, built and deliver a fully customized quality measurement system, that customers can literally plug and play. From dedicated measurement systems to detect earthquakes to extremely accurate inclination measurement systems with displays and set points, there is hardly a measurement challenge that can’t be solved with a custom Test & Measurement solution.
As your Test & measurement sensor partner our goal is always to bring the best quality solution for your specific application.
Flexibility & in house design
With our in house design and manufacturing we have the flexibility to produce fast prototypes for the customer to test and iterate on in a short time-span.
We are your application specialist applying our strong knowledge in different sensor technologies to create the best possible sensor or to develop the best fit measurement chain often existing of sensors, amplifiers, electronics, and data-acquisition modules. From multichannel pressure measurement systems to position measurement systems with nano-meter resolution, Althen is your partner.
Application examples of plug and play T&M applications
Smart railway sleepers with multi-sensor solution
The Dutch company ProRail (responsible for all railway tracks in the Netherlands) is testing new types of durable sleepers in a testing ground on a stretch of track. The test takes two years, and trains continue to run during the test. Read how we participated in this project with an integrated multi-sensor solution.
Submersible Sensors and Maintenance test of the lock Noordersluis
In 2029, the Noordersluis between IJmuiden and Amsterdam will reach the end of its technical life. Rijkswaterstaat (part of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management) is investigating what maintenance must be done to keep the current lock in operation until the new lock is delivered.
