SWINDON, United Kingdom and NUREMBERG, Germany, Oct. 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sensata Technologies (NYSE:ST), an industrial technology company and a leading provider of sensors, announced that it will exhibit at SPS IPC Drives 2018 (Hall 10.1, Booth 111) this November. To highlight its expanded Industrial business and application-specific expertise, Sensata will organize its booth around product lines and market solutions.

Among its featured products will be the very latest switches, Crydom relays, circuit breakers and electrical protection devices, complemented by BEI Sensors position sensors and encoders, pressure and temperature sensors, and BEI Kimco motors. In addition, recently launched products, such as the DR45 DIN rail mount Solid State Relay (SSR), will be on display. The NOVA 22 DR45 is one of the only SSRs capable of accepting output wires up to 3 AWG with an IP20 protection rating. At the show, Sensata expects to introduce two new product series that expand on the NOVA22 family of relays.  The new series will feature higher ratings in more compact packages.

From its position sensing solutions, Sensata will display its SIL3/PLe-rated functional safety encoders, which feature digital and sine/cosine analog electronic output options in addition to a new hall effect sensor with IO link.

Sensata is also proud to announce an agreement to acquire GIGAVAC LLC, an industry-leading producer of high voltage contactors that are mission-critical components for electric vehicles and equipment. The acquisition of GIGAVAC (which is expected to close in the fourth quarter and is subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals) will extend Sensata’s capabilities in electrification for many complex and challenging applications in the automotive, battery storage, industrial and heavy vehicle and off-road (HVOR) markets.

In the market segment focus of the exhibit, Sensata will demonstrate how its products provide solutions for a diverse range of Industry 4.0 applications to support greater automation, increased productivity, and best-in-class safety and performance.
