Switches and sensors for hydraulics

Switches and sensors for various process parameters, such as pressure, filling level and temperature, are used to regulate, control and monitor hydraulic systems. HANSA‑FLEX is a one-stop partner supplying a large selection of durable pressure, temperature and level switches and sensors. In addition, our experts advise you on the selection of the most suitable solution and support you in the optimisation of your machines and systems.

Switches and sensors for pressure, temperature and level control

The HANSA‑FLEX portfolio includes robust, analogue hydraulic switches and state-of-the-art sensors for interlinking hydraulic systems with electronic controls for all industries and applications.

  • Analogue and digital pressure switches and sensors

    Our online shop has a huge choice of mechanical pressure switches and electronic pressure sensors for automated monitoring and control of pressure levels in hydraulic systems.

    • Mechanical pressure switches for pressure ranges of 5 to 630 bar
    • Electronic pressure sensors optionally supplied with digital displays
    • Compact unit comprising pressure switch and pressure sensor with LED display
    All products
  • Precision temperature switches with various switching points

    Having the correct oil temperature is crucial to the proper functioning of a hydraulic system. Temperature switches allow you to reliably monitor the temperature of your hydraulic oil.

    • For installation in pipelines or hydraulic tanks
    • Various dip pipe lengths
    • Switch hysteresis 10 Kelvin (+/- 5 Kelvin)

Good to know

What you should consider when selecting, installing and operating sensors and switches in hydraulic systems.

  • Redundancy in the equipment of systems

    Faults or failures can occur in any electronic system. For this reason, it is sensible in certain cases to fit more than one switch in a hydraulic system. With redundancy built into the design of the control electronics, your system is reliably protected against switching faults should a switch fail. In addition, the fact that two measurements are taken gives a second value for comparison purposes. This also allows a failing switch to be detected. Safety can be further increased by adding an additional, purely visual display.

  • Choosing the right sensor

    The choice of sensors depends on the installation situation, medium properties and ambient conditions. The application also determines the requirements in accordance with the relevant standards with respect to temperature resistance, IP type and shock and vibration load strength. You should consider the following when selecting your sensor:

    • Measurement accuracy, measurement range, measured quantity and output signal strength
    • Electrical and hydraulic connections
    • Integration into machine and system controls
  • Prevent wear

    Like all other system components, sensors are not 100 % protected from wear. However, you can considerably extend the service life of sensors by following a few simple rules:

    • Do not exceed the specified measuring ranges.
    • Do not use sensors in media for which they were not designed.
    • Ensure the materials they are made from are suitable for the conditions of use.
    • Operate the sensors with the correct electrical connections and parameters.
    • Avoid overtemperature, shock and vibrations.
