Innovative Force Sensing Technology
Setra Systems is a global leader in the design and manufacture of pressure, acceleration and weight sensing devices. Its products support critical infrastructure in a wide range of industries, including agriculture, semiconductors and healthcare, with recent innovations designed to keep hospital patients and staff safe from infection.
The company’s transducers and systems are based on the highly accurate variable capacitance transduction principle—with good reason. Setra’s founders, professors emeritus of engineering at MIT, developed this principle, the innovative force sensing technology at the heart of every Setra product.
Founded in 1967, the company joined Danaher in 2001 and became part of Fortive’s sensing technologies platform in 2016. Armed with ISO certification and a focus on lean manufacturing, Setra powers sensing innovation for HVAC and industrial applications.
