The SMX.dms-a provides a digital (CAN bus) and an analog output signal and is extremely robust.
The sensor has an ECE type approval for vehicles           

Strain sensors measure deflections, e.g. of steel arms, in various directions. In this way, forces, weights or vibrations can be indirectly recorded.
The previously available strain sensor DMS has been revised completely and is now available in an optimized version. The newly developed hardware allows a lower height for the housing. The assembly points are identical to those of the predecessor product, thus enabling the seamless transition in already existing applications.  As before, both an analog and a digital output are available. Furthermore, the STW toolchain openSYDE is supported, which allows easy integration into already existing systems and is used for the commissioning of sensors.
Conventional strain sensors are hard to install and put into operation. Due to its optimized connection technology, the installation of the DMS can be very well integrated into the production process of e.g. mobile machines. The sensor is intended either for direct mounting or it can be delivered preassembled with an optional carrier plate.
In case of servicing, the sensor can be easily replaced on site. As the configuration data are adopted, the new sensor can be put into operation without requiring further alignment, meaning that the system is ready for operation again within a very short time.


We are proud of our products and solutions, but they really reveal their true colors when used by our customers. Whether digitalized, automated or electrified – mobile machines repeatedly delight with new innovations, in particular in terms of their user-friendliness, reliability and ability to integrate into work processes. Thanks to our customers, we are delighted to present a small selection here.


Our objective is to support our customers in all aspects concerning the digitalization, automation and electrification of their mobile machines. We consider the entire machine lifecycle and develop our STW product and service portfolio in alignment with this lifecycle. The ECO system, an open and holistic approach, facilitates the cross-topic integration of STW solutions. Furthermore, our product approach facilitates functional expansion through partner offers and hybrid, integrated products based on our system module.


The STW "ECO System" is characterized through the integration of systems and products which transcend the borders between solution areas. Our partners also supplement the STW product and services portfolio for the benefit of our customers. The open nature of the product portfolio permits easy integration of the products into third-party systems or the supplementation of our system through further products by third party providers.
