TR-Electronic GmbH

Who we are

We provide: measurement and control systems for automation technology

When industrial processes run smoothly and reliably, there are chances that this is partly due to measurement and control solutions from TR-Electronic. When a theater curtain goes up, for example, systems of TR monitor the complex stage technology. People and machines work safely together and the audience enjoys a perfect production. Wind energy plants generate energy with maximum efficiency thanks to optimally aligned rotor blades - controlled by TR solutions. In press lines for the automotive industry, TR sensors guarantee safe forming of the body components. In logistics, TR measuring systems enable smooth transport of goods, e.g. in conveying systems and high racks. TR control and measuring modules control and monitor pumps for drinking water supply, regulate correct feeding of pellets in wood-fueled installations or help to detect faults in a punching machine at an early stage.

For all of these and other applications TR-Electronic supplies the right rotary encoders, linear encoders and drives – as high-quality standard products or customized solutions.

Our goal is your success!

TR-Electronic develops, manufactures and sells sensors and actuators for industrial applications in automation technology. In order to better integrate the individual competencies and make them more transparent for our customers, we have organized the company into business units:

Products in the Rotary Encoders Business Unit with optical or magnetic scanning are required to detect the angular movement of a rotating shaft. Magnetostrictive linear encoders measure the position of a linear movement without contact, for example in a hydraulic cylinder. Intelligent compact drives from the Motion Business Unit are used as actuators or, in the high-end version, as process drives. Customized control and measuring modules in combination with special know-how in pressing and punching processes complete the extensive product portfolio. Automation components from the Components Business Unit complete the product range. The development services provided by the Automation Business Unit bring press lines to new levels of performance, provide smart metering solutions for efficient energy utilization and fair billing, enable remote monitoring of water supply networks or ensure a cozy environment through intelligent heating automation.

Based in the region, present throughout the world

Characterized by the typical Swabian inclination to hard work, TR-Electronic has strong regional roots while at the same time being active throughout the world. Its most important customer is the mechanical and plant engineering industry, which has a strong tradition in Germany. In addition to the primary location of Trossingen, our subsidiaries and technical sales partners in Europe, the USA, Canada, Brazil and Asia offer professional advice and project planning and ensure worldwide access to the TR product range. TR's sales subsidiary established in China in 2010 with an office in Beijing is now the direct contact for production locations in Asia for many European companies and supports ambitious industrial projects in the Far East.

The basis of our innovative products and growing global success are the experts, their ideas and development expertise in Trossingen. The optimal combination of longstanding experience and the fresh inspiration provided by qualified new employees ensure a competitive advantage in terms of the functionality, quality and cost efficiency of our product range, both today and in the future.

This is what we stand for. This is what we work for. And this is what we want to be measured by!
