Micronor Inc.

Company Background:

Micronor Inc. was founded 2003 in Newbury Park, California. The founders accurately predicted the need for fiber optic kinetic sensors which provide immunity from lightning, EMI/RFI, radiation and magnetic fields. Based on an innovative and patented technology, using wavelength as the information carrier, the first product introduced to the market was the incremental encoder. These products are used in the transportation, energy, mining, oil and gas industries for position sensing and controlling the speed of VFD drives.

As an innovative and flexible company, Micronor offers a wide range of fiber optic sensors:

  • Rotary position sensors
  • Rotary incremental encoders
  • Linear position sensors
  • Linear incremental encoders
  • Emergency stop
  • Microswitch
  • U-beam
  • Accelerometer
  • Temperature sensors
  • Encoder Extender
