Howard A. Schaevitz
Chairman of the Board
Howard Schaevitz, formerly Chairman of the Board of Schaevitz Engineering, has spent fifty years in the sensor business. Schaevitz Engineering, founded by his father, Herman Schaevitz, was the pioneering company in LVDTs, and under Howard's skillful guidance, the company grew substantially to become a major sensor manufacturer based on multiple technologies. He vigorously sponsored the invention and early development of both LVIT and RVIT technologies, which form the basis for a significant portion of the position sensors that Alliance Sensors Group manufactures and markets today.
Harold Schaevitz is the third generation in the sensor industry starting his career in 1981 at Schaevitz Engineering as a buyer and later promoted to eastern regional sales manager. Founded Schaevitz Interetech in 1990 and in 2009 founded Sensing Solutions, A div of Harold G Schaevitz LLC as president, specializing in marketing American made position, rotary, and tilt sensing products in the Far East.
Edward E. Herceg
Chief Technology Officer, Chief Applications Engineer
Edward Herceg is widely recognized as one of the most accomplished electro-mechanical applications engineers and technical marketers in the sensor industry today. His training, knowledge, and experience cover not only the sensor world, but a broad range of disciplines including electrical, chemical, mechanical, structural, and materials sciences. Early in his career, Mr. Herceg was chief engineer at Schaevitz Engineering, originally well known as the pioneer in LVDTs, which ultimately became a major multi-technology position sensor manufacturer. While there, he authored the "Schaevitz Handbook of Measurement and Control," the first book written on the subject of LVDT position sensors. Later, while at Schaevitz, he oversaw the development of the first LVIT/RVIT position sensors and headed the Schaevitz division that first brought LVIT/RVIT position sensing technology to the market.
