Mechanical engineering

The field of mechanical engineering includes a wide range of different applications and requirements. BROSA likes to take on the challenges of new projects.

Environmental conditions:

Sensors from BROSA correspond to DIN EN 60529 of protection class IP 67 or IP 69 on request. They are designed for harsh environments such as extreme heat and cold. BROSA force measuring sensors are temperature compensated from -40 ... + 80 °C and have a high long-term stability. Temperatures of up to + 160 °C can also be realized as an option.

Perfectly shielded amplifiers create good electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) in our sensors. The very high interference immunity of 200 V/m guarantees safe operation.


Our sensors are available with performance level c (d) or SIL 1 (2). When used in higher-level systems according to DIN EN ISO 13849-1, we can also offer sensors with performance level e or SIL 3.

You have a choice of a range of different output signals such as current output (4 ... 20mA), CANopen, CANopen Safety, PROFINET (PROFIsafe). We also implement customized output signals.

BROSA force sensors are also ATEX and IECEx certified. We can offer all of our force sensors in an Ex-i version. Force measuring pins, tension load cells and angle sensors are also available in an Ex-d version. Thus, our sensors are ideally suited for use in areas subject to explosion hazards.


Our strength lies in the technical consultation of our clients. If you want to measure forces and loads or stress, we work out an optimal solution to your measuring task together with you based your design conditions in terms of

  • The most appropriate sensor
  • The most suitable installation location in your overall design
  • Necessary requirements
