Automation Sensors

PICS, Inc. carries a wide range of industrial automation sensors for detection and laser distance measurement. Our motion control sensors are used in the control automation industry to service a wide range of applications.To measure and/or control the speed of a device, we carry rotary encoders.

We stock inductive proximity sensors, which are used to detect and measure the simple presence or accurate positions of metal objects. Baumer proximity sensors are some of the most widely used motion control sensors in the automation industry today. Fiber optic sensors from Baumer and Panasonic are a flexible option in which space is limited. These sensors can withstand demanding conditions and are versatile enough for uses in a variety of industries. Our Baumer photoelectric sensors are ideal for light barrier, background suppresion and diffuse applications and many more uses. We also offer limit switches from Crouzet
