Engineering in perfection: Exclusive measurement solutions

Sensors, recorders or complete systems – our specialists in engineering development and design custom solutions to your every desire. We plan and develop custom solutions for your measurement and sensor needs. Our engineering specialists come into play whenever your needs go beyond our product line. Your personal representative will visit you on site to get a picture of your metrology challenges. Because the more accurately we understand your requirements, the more quickly and effectively we can support you. 

If your measurement task is clearly defined, we can work out a detailed draft. For example, we can develop complete solutions for pressure, force, tilt, acceleration or distance. Our development produces requirements-compliant solutions. Of course, we keep an eye on your costs. We don't replace your complete system directly; we develop and optimise existing systems, too. So you're always working with the latest state of the art. Once the concept is defined, we design a prototype for you. Of course, we test each and every solution thoroughly. This allows us to ensure that your products deliver the results you need.

Engineering and production at Althen

Individual and customized measurement chains

From the recording of the measured variable (measurement signal) to the final evaluation of the measurement results: We offer you the optimal solution consisting of transducers, measuring amplifiers and measured value displays. The sensor (transducer) is the first link in the measurement chain. It transforms the measured variable into a measurement signal due to a physical effect. In doing so, it should suppress the influences of disturbance variables as well as possible. If the incoming signal is not suitable for further processing, it must be converted into an appropriate measurement signal. In measuring chains, the so-called measuring amplifier has the task of converting the signal into a measuring signal with greater or lesser amplitude and generating an output measuring signal that can be evaluated. With the help of the measured value display, the measured values are presented and can be e.g. visualized (digital indicators, signal lamps, etc.) analyzed and/or evaluated (database, data memory, etc.).

We offer customized measurement solutions

From prototypes to serial products - due to proven manufacturing technology we offer single components or complete systems. Your requirements are high - we are aware of this and rise to the challenge. In our in-house production we manufacture accessories for data loggers as well as complete solutions for the measurement of e.g. pressure, force, inclination, acceleration or displacement.

From a wide range of standard products, we select the appropriate components for your measurement tasks. From these, we develop individual measuring devices and sensors that meet your high requirements. Depending on your needs, we produce single pieces batches. With our prototypes, you can test whether the products can be perfectly integrated into your existing systems and work the right way. And of course, we keep an eye on the costs so you always receive the right solution for the best price.

Precise manufacturing technology for your products

Our manufacturing technology meets the latest standards. Whether sensor solutions or measuring chains: The result is sophisticated technology of the highest quality. The heart of our manufacturing department is our in-house calibration laboratory. There we carefully test your products including endurance tests. This guarantees that your products will function smoothly in the field. Every product that leaves our production facility fulfills its measuring and sensor tasks efficiently and reliably. After production, we are happy to support you in commissioning the measurement solutions and, if you wish, remind you of the regular maintenance of your devices even after installation. In this way, you achieve precise results in the long term.

We also offer a whole range of turnkey measurement solutions for a variety of technical and industrial applications that are plug-and-play. Our turn-key systems are precise, reliable and easy to use. Of course, each measuring system is precisely tailored to your specific requirements.
