The Laser-View Technologies Difference

The laser-View Family of noncontact industrial sensor and systems

Those who already know us at Laser-View Technologies understand it’s no an accident that we provide the smart non-contact sensor products and full-featured systems and solutions that we do. What captures our attention are technologies and products that reduce or eliminate the issues associated with traditional contact-based sensors (encoders, limit switches, potentiometers, LVDTs, etc.). Our passion is designing systems that provide solutions to engineering questions that are difficult to answer with traditional sensors.

So, what makes Laser-View Technologies different? For one thing, we sell solutions, not just products. Our application engineers can answer your questions and help design your solution. In addition, we take great pride in the way we run our operation on a daily basis:

  • Substantial US-based inventory
  • USA technical support
    • Knowledge and understanding of the non-contact sensors we sell
    • Experience with numerous PLC platforms and in integrations with various manufacturers’ systems, controllers, and drives through a wide variety of protocols
    • Extensive hardware, technical support, training materials and sample code available
  • Our sensors and sensor solutions perform in applications and environments difficult for traditional sensors
    • Superior cost/performance ratio compared to traditional sensors
    • High quality and precision in a rugged industrial package
    • Value added options, including brackets, cables, explosion proof/heated/cooled enclosures, etc.
    • Turnkey industrial solutions
