Sensor Products

Sentech is a global leader in the design and manufacture of position sensors, including Linear Variable Displacement Transducers (“LVDT”), Rotary Variable Differential Transducers (“RVDT”), FASTAR sensors, HYDRASTAR sensors, signal conditioners, and solenoids for 35+ years. We specialize in developing custom, tailored solutions for mission-critical applications such as power generation, industrial, and aerospace environments. All units are non-contact and thus offer excellent reliability, performance, and long life.


Linear Variable Differential Transformers provide absolute, linear position measurement. Their non-contacting design provides high reliability with no degradation of performance with respect to time or number of cycles of operation. LVDTs are available in AC-operated as well as DC-operated versions.


RVDTs, Rotary Variable Differential Transformers, employ the same high-reliability features as the LVDT except provide high precision rotary or angular position measurements. RVDTs are also available in AC or DC-operated versions.


FASTAR® is a variable inductance, non-contacting linear position sensor, featuring very short overall length relative to the measurement range. FASTAR® sensors offer a very fast response to displacement input (up to 15 kHz) making them well suited for dynamic measurements. Units are available with integral or separate signal conditioners.


HYDRASTAR® sensors, like FASTAR® sensors, are a variable inductance position sensor specifically designed for installation into hydraulic or pneumatic cylinders and actuators. The HYDRASTAR® also features short physical length, fast response, and non-contact operation.

Special Applications

Sentech, Inc. specializes in the design and manufacture of position sensors for special or unusual applications. We can supply units having differing package sizes, mounting configurations and electrical characteristics and specifications. Intrinsically Safe units for use in hazardous locations can be provided with certifications for U.S.A., Canada, and Europe.

Hall Effect Sensors

Our Single and Dual Hall Effect Sensors are ideal for a wide range of industries, our uniquely tailored product development makes them cost effective replacements for inductive proximity, Variable Reluctance and other competitive technologies.

Magnetic Pickups

We’re experts in the design and manufacture of Magnetic Pickups, providing high performance low-cost solutions. Sensitive, shock resistant, versatile, reliable in harsh environments, Sentech magnetic pickups create value by enhancing their system’s engine performance, efficiency, and on-board diagnostics.

Magnetoresistive Sensors

Magnetoresistive technology provides high signal clarity in an attractive cost effective package, with or without signal conditioning. Available in two resolution packages. (Single Magnetoresistive and Dual Magnetoresistive)

Inductive Proximity Sensors

Watertight, dust-proof, impervious to oil, yet sensitive to all metals they operate on the Eddy Current principle. The sensing head emits an alternating radio frequency field generated by a solid state oscillator. Available for flush or non-flush mounting with shielded or un-shielded cases and a variety of mounting thread sizes.

Rotary/Angular Position Sensor

A magnetically biased, Hall-effect integrated circuit (IC) senses rotary movement of the actuator shaft over a set operating range. Rotation of the actuator shaft changes the IC’s position relative to the magnets position, the resulting change in flux density is converted into a linear output.
