One of the most elaborate test fixtures we have at HSI Sensing is the frame and arm for a food chopper.


As is common with many of our specifically designed applications, we closely mimic the final application in our final product test. The sensor detects the presence of an arm used for inserting the food into the chopping mechanism. It is a safety device to that the operator is forced to use the arm for loading food and cannot insert their hand or another pushing device not specifically intended for the purpose.  This critical application is straightforward and one we were able to design a product for quickly.

Safety systems

Safety systems are a common and important use of our sensors. Whether it is the presence of a specific tool, door closure or opening, locking mechanism secured or other safety measures, our sensors serve a critical role.

This is another great example of how we can make the world a better and safer place preserving lives and quality of life.
