Bently Nevada Sensors and Transducers

Sensors and Transducers

Sensors and Transducers Overview

Sensors are installed in or on the machine to make appropriate measurements such as vibration, position, speed, pressure, power, and others. GE offers a very wide variety of sensors, each designed to handle the rigors of industrial environments and many capable of being installed in hazardous areas when appropriate I.S. barriers, galvanic isolation, or other means are used. When your needs fall outside our standard product offering, our custom products engineering capabilities may be able to modify an existing product, or develop an entirely new one, to meet your needs.
