More than 30 years of experience
Frauscher Sensor Technology was established in 1987 in St. Marienkirchen, Austria. In many parts of the world Frauscher is considered a leader in the design and manufacture of cutting-edge wheel sensors and axle counting technology, with a strong reputation for providing high quality products and outstanding customer service. Skilled engineering assistance from system design to troubleshooting is available to customers as needed.
In 2015, Frauscher Sensor Technology USA was established in Princeton, New Jersey to introduce our products and technology to the North American marketplace. Due to early successes in North America and overall positive reception of our products, in 2018 we opened a second sales office in Toronto, Canada. That same year, Frauscher also established a full-service warehouse in Cranbury, New Jersey, providing a local supply center for quicker turnaround of all of Frauscher products.
