SensyMIC, located in the Rhein-Main Frankfurt area in Alzenau is one of the most experienced suppliers of Mineral insulated metal sheathed cables (MIMS cables or MI-cables). SensyMIC represents a long tradition in production of sheathed cables. Founded by Degussa in the 1960s the company has been part of the WIKA group since 2017. 

The compmany manufactures a wide program of MI cables for sheathed thermocouples and sheathed resistance thermometers. All standardized thermocouples of type K, J, L, T, U, E and N as well as the precious metal types R, S and B can be delivered. Also, various sheathed cables with Cu, CuNi, Ni and NiCr inner leads are our standards. 

SensyMIC provides MI-cables in outstanding quality for heavy duty applications – made in Germany. 

MI-cables are consisting of only three different components, but to get a reliable component for temperature measurement at the end, there is a high level of know-how and expertise in drawing processes and material characteristics necessary. 

Easy Engineering: What are the main areas of activity of the company?

SensyMIC: Our focus is on establishing close partnerships with our customers for a very wide range of industries. We can offer products of the highest quality level and providing technical solution, which are not only reliable but even can improve our customers business processes.

E.E: What are the ranges of products?

SensyMIC: Our products can be used in a wide range of applications, in particular in the field of temperature measurement and control, for example in sensor technology for hazardous areas. MI-cables are suitable for extreme temperature ranges and SensyMIC MI-cables are suitable for a lot of heavy-duty applications. Based on our special production processes – which are unique worldwide – we can provide MI-cables that fulfil customers’ demands in critical areas. Also, our stabilized type K material allows our clients to reproduce the measurement values we confirm in our certification. Also end customers can find these values and this allows them to reduce costs and repetitive quality control steps.

Supplementary to our MI-cables we can provide a wide range of Thermocouple cables, compensating cables and insulated thermocouple wires. Due to our modern and fast processes in our warehouse we are able to delivery quantities on demand.
