19 May 2020
Althen Sensors & Controls has signed a distribution agreement with sensor manufacturer Opkon for the Benelux, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Scandinavia. Opkon is a producer of high-quality linear and rotary potentiometers and produces all its products in Istanbul, Turkey.

Opkon potentiometers are mainly used in OEM applications, for measuring rotation or linear position. Opkon is known for its robust solid quality products with low-cost pricing. The sensors are often used in injection molding machines, steel processing machines, paper production machines and other industrial applications.

Opkon supplies cost-efficient potentiometers and encoders with a fast delivery time and is also extremely flexible in customizing the products. Customising a sensor is already possible from a small amount. “At Althen, we are always looking for partners who are innovative and very flexible, so that they can also develop customized solutions together with our client. Opkon is therefore a perfect addition for us, because customer focus and flexibility are core values ​​for both of us, ”says Thijs Haselhoff, director of Althen BV.

Product Portfolio Opkon

In addition to the high-quality linear and rotary potentiometers, Opkon offers two new product lines: linear magnetostrictive sensors for non-contact position measurement in high-speed applications and in-cylinder potentiometers for position measurements in hydraulic cylinders.

Opkon products can be found on both Althen Sensors & Controls websites:
