Automated control instrumentation includes a range of devices and instruments that are used to streamline automated processes including dispensing, assembling, material handling, sorting, packing, labeling and more. They include encoders, connectors, inductive proximity sensors, signal conditioners, and more to perform tasks just as positioning, grasping, detecting and identifying products on an assembly line. Automation instruments also provide communication between robotics and other automation equipment and serve as an interface between workers and machinery. 

Using industrial automation instrumentation provides a range of benefits including:

  • Better process and product consistency
  • Reduced labor costs and improved performance
  • Improved workplace safety
  • Decreased part cycle times
  • Improved product quality
  • Reduction in overall product costs

Branom Instrument Co. provides our customers with a wide variety of automated control instrumentation to help streamline and improve the efficiency of your manufacturing processes. From inductive sensors to encoders to machine safety products, we have the perfect control and monitoring instrumentation for your application.

Automated Control Instrumentation from Leading Manufacturers

Branom maintains an extensive in-stock inventory of indicators, signal conditioners, and more from the world’s leading manufacturers. We offer on/off sensors for discrete automation, light curtains for personnel safety automation, and everything in between. Our inventory of automation instruments includes, but is not limited to:


  • Collaborative Robots: Easily programable robot arms are versatile and designed to work collaboratively with humans. With 6 articulated points mimicking the range of motion of a human arm to perform a wide array of repetitive tasks, cobots improve efficiency, safety and product quality. Cobots are easy to set-up and program, plus can be redeployed when automation needs change.
  • Connectors & Cordsets: Automation connectors provide communication between industrial automation system components and are an essential part of any manufacturing or assembly line. The connectors utilize Ethernet/IP, DeviceNet and other protocols to send signals between the automation equipment and are designed to withstand harsh environments including exposure to moisture and chemicals.
  • Encoders:  A Rotary or Shaft encoder is an electro-mechanical device that interprets the position of a shaft and converts the position into an analog or digital signal.  Encoders are typically used to measure change in position, speed or linear distance.
  • Human Machine Interface (HMI) Displays: Industrial HMI touch panels provide a textual or graphical interface between users and industrial automation systems and users. They can display data, graphics and animation to and from a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) to provide control and monitoring of automation systems.
  • Machine Safety: Facilities that utilize industrial automation are required to adhere to guidelines aimed at preventing workplace injuries and related economic consequences such as equipment downtime and fines related to non-compliance. Various types of machine safety instruments are used to control emergency stop shutdown relays, protective door monitoring systems, speed monitoring, access monitoring, and other equipment.  
  • Photo Electric & Inductive Sensors: Also known as photo eyes, photo electric automation instruments use infrared light transmitters to detect the presence and proximity of an object without making physical contact. Inductive proximity sensors perform that same function but use an indictive switch to sense an object and are specifically designed for the detection of metal objects. Common applications for both types of instruments include packaging, pushing, positioning, counting and rotating.
  • Radio Wireless: Automation instruments that utilize radio waves to transfer information between two or more points. In industrial automation, radios are used in place of manual, hard-wired instruments to gather data and provide timely, accurate and consistent information for a range of communication applications.
  • Signal Conditioners: Data acquisition instruments that convert electrical or mechanical input signals into high level output signals that provide precise measurements for machine control and data acquisition. Signal conditioners are used in a wide range of industrial automation applications for signal conversion, linearization of signals, filtering signal frequencies, signal evaluation, amplifying signals for digitization, and more.
  • Machine Vision: Image-based inspection and processing technology that is used to decode labels and inspect and sort products in an automated production line. In robot applications, it helps robots grasp products by determining the location and orientation of a product. Machine vision industrial automation technology includes various types of software, hardware and integrated systems.
