Utilizing magnets and magnetic sensor elements such as Reed switches or hall sensors, we have the possibility to detect position and movement of movable parts of a vehicle. A common use are the magnetic proximity switches which can also be used as limit switches. Physical characteristics such as sensor points and hysteresis can be adjusted individually. In this field STABIL ELEKTROTECHNIK GmbH is capable of conducting investigations and optimizing the overall system using simulation calculations and visualization tools at a very early stage – before the creation of A-samples.
