Quality Electronic Components for Power Electronics Applications


VS Traction Voltage Sensors

Incomparable protection against magnetic fields

VS sensors are conceived, designed and renowned for their unrivalled immunity to ambient magnetic fields. Although they are in continuous proximity of powerful currents capable of distorting their measurements, this does not, in fact, occur. Their accuracy is rock-solid and once set to measure a particular voltage, that is what they measure - that and nothing else.

100% Electronic

To push the performance barriers back ever further, VS sensors are made 100% electronic. Our sensors are the first ones on the market to incorporate this innovation. They prove themselves every day and give their users the edge in a broad range of applications. This guarantees you unbeatable dynamic performances that give optimal slaving of customer equipment while complying with the latest standards in force. VS sensors are perfect for use in sectors such as railways, mining and control in hazardous environments. VS voltage sensors and CS current sensors together constitute an offer the railway industry cannot afford to ignore.


Sensors to measure d.c., a.c. or pulsating voltages.
