HMIs and sensor technology in the mobility industry

Whether modern cars, rugged special-purpose vehicles, comfortable airplanes or the classic train – they are all controlled by a variety of HMIs and sensors. The key is logical and intuitive communication between the driver and the vehicle. The user interface is as individual as the field of application. We develop your individual solution from robust front panels with membrane keypads to modern touch terminals and sensitive membrane sensors.

Icon gear with wrench

Flexible installation

You can choose between different installation options: glue, screw or plug. Or we can take care of the installation for you and integrate your HMI or sensor directly into a suitable housing.

Icon hand taps on surface

Intuitive operation

Raised or recessed key surfaces through embossing, GT-Dome or In-Mold Decoration enable optimal finger guidance. The user can operate the measuring device blindly and concentrate fully on the measurement.

Icon vibration protection

Shock and vibration resistant

Through robust designs and materials, we make your HMI or sensor solution shock and vibration resistant. If you wish, we can also carry out the relevant tests and provide the associated documentation for you.

HMIs

We develop and produce individual user interfaces for measuring devices of any kind. Depending on the requirements, flexible membrane keyboards with tactile feedback, intuitive touch systems or capacitive keys are used. On request, we also combine different input technologies with each other.

Raised or recessed key surfaces allow blind operation and ensure that the user can concentrate on the actual measurement.

Housing + carrier

We integrate our HMI and sensor solutions directly into a suitable housing or carrier made of plastic or metal.

For an individual solution, we will gladly take over the design or fall back on the housing program of our suppliers for a standard solution. Alternatively, we also manufacture plastic parts with complex geometries using in-house 3D printing.

If you undertake the installation in your measuring device yourself, you can choose from variable installation options: screw, glue or plug in.

Connectivity

Via built-in NFC tags or SIM cards, we make your measuring devices visible online.

Easily manage your devices on the IoT platform and link them to custom content.

For an individual IoT solution, we draw on the expertise of our HK technology network and offer you everything from a single source, from the device to the platform to operation.

Printed Electronics + Sensors

We print individual foil sensors for displacement, angle and force measurement or position detection for precise measurement results.

The lightweight, low-profile and durable design means you benefit from a reliable solution that can be easily integrated even in cramped measuring equipment.

Precise alignment systems intuitive operation

Measuring and testing technology

The ROTALIGN Ultra laser-optical precision alignment device from Prüftechnik Alignment Systems GmbH reliably avoids misalignment and achieves precise alignment of machines. For the alignment system, we have developed an intuitive and reliable control unit with alphanumeric input and backlighting, which is dustproof and splashproof to IP65.
