GEMAC Expands U.S. Presence by Establishing Office in Illinois

GEMAC has established an office in Chicago, IL, as well as distribution through MAXMAR Motion Technologies, in an effort to further expand its presence in the U.S.

GEMAC, a German developer and manufacturer of high-tech electronics, announces its extended focus on the U.S. market for sensor technology through a representative office in Chicago, IL, at the German-American Chamber of Commerce of the Midwest (GACCoM Inc.) and distribution through MAXMAR Motion Technologies Inc. of Westminster, CO. These U.S.-based GEMAC representatives are well positioned to help serve the company’s growing number of U.S. customers for high-quality inclination and acceleration sensors, field bus testers, interpolation circuits and custom-designed sensors.

With its team of 110 employees located in Chemnitz, Germany, GEMAC leverages professional know-how and innovative ideas to offer customized solutions to its customers and deliver reliable, accurate and robust products at affordable prices. Thanks to its research and development strengths, GEMAC also has unique capabilities to handle special requests for custom components and can rapidly develop products to meet customers’ needs.

GEMAC has a proven track-record of delivering high-quality and long-lasting products and is proudly certified under DIN EN ISO 9001:2008. GEMAC products and components operate safely, accurately and reliably even under extreme conditions and have been proven effective in a wide range of fields including industrial automation, agricultural, construction and forestry machines, medical technology and alternative energy installations such as solar thermal power generators.

“We see a real need amongst U.S. customers for sensor technology that is designed to operate efficiently at affordable prices without overly sophisticated specifications,” says Mathias Schramm, Head of Sales at GEMAC.GEMAC has the know-how and flexibility to help these companies achieve the best possible deployment of sensor technology,” Schramm states.

Highest possible accuracy even during extreme temperature swings

GEMAC was proud to launch a new, innovative temperature-compensated inclination sensor with CAN or CANopen interface at this year’s Hannover Fair in April. This new sensor represents a further step in the expansion of GEMAC’s line of high quality inclination sensor products and rounds out its premium offerings. With a zero-point temperature coefficient of +/-0.0008 degrees/K and an intelligent system solution, the maximum deviation in accuracy due to temperature is reduced to the extremely low level of less than 0.1 degrees, guaranteed for the full temperature range of -40 C to 80 C (-40 F to 176 F). The CAN/CANopen interface enables simple, user-based adjustment of all parameters. In addition, a system resolution of 0.01 degrees and specially developed, robust metal housing boost the outstanding performance of this sensor type. This sensor thus offers another high quality, GEMAC solution for numerous new fields of application with even more demanding conditions.
