The History of EBE sensors + motion
The beginning was marked by the development of measuring and test devices, in particular step switches. Rotary and linear solenoids followed. Today, EBE Elektro-Bau-Element GmbH is a major supplier of sensor technology, HMI components, electromagnetics and mechatronics. The open-minded, sustainable and owner-managed company has devoted itself to new technologies and applications for decades. A number of innovations shape the company history.
