Position and Force Sensors

Bokam designs and manufactures force sensors and condition monitoring systems for the industrial, military, medical, maritime, and aerospace verticals. Any organization can trust our rugged sensors to provide accurate results for years to come.

Bokam offers a wide range of force and position sensors that are based on our unique solid state force measurement technologies. The product line offers multi-axis measurement that can be configured to measure both force and position depending on configuration of integration hardware. The sensors are designed to work with a wider range of Bokam electronics that are programmable and provide for in use calibration and re-setting. The Bokam force and position sensors also come in fully submersible configurations that can be used for subsea condition monitoring, force measurement, and position measurement applications.

Key Features and Advantages:

  • Solid state sensors with extreme survivability and life expectancy in the billions of life cycles
  • Highly repeatable and stable sensors can be used in condition monitoring and OEM systems without maintenance or repair requirements over the life of the system
  • Fully submersible product lines available
  • Multi-axis sensors available to measure X, Y, Z, and rotation force application
  • Multi-channel devices available for redundancy of measurement
  • Stand-alone or integrated electronics provide multiple output types to fit virtually any system interface requirements – including USB, Ethernet, CAN, and analog outputs
  • Custom configurations and customization of sensor interfaces available on request
