Schneider Electric forms sensor competency center
Schneider Electric developed the Sensor Competency Center (SCC) as a single U.S. source for technical and application support for the sensor industry. Based in Dayton, OH, SCC uses design, engineering and application expertise of Schneider Electric’s Hyde Park and Telemecanique sensor lines.
With a staff of over 60, SCC covers sensors including inductive, capacitive, photoelectric and ultrasonic. The site offers help for applications, product support and selection, installation and set-up, product modification, marketing and promotion, global design for ultrasonic sensors, and sensor manufacturing.
“This new center provides plant operators, specifying engineers, automation and control engineers, maintenance personnel and OEMs with the expertise they need to find the best solutions for any sensor-related issue,” said Vince Lewis, president of Hyde Park and the Schneider Electric SCC.
