Draw wire sensors in mobile applications

10.11.2016

The relevance of precise position detection is growing in the mobile hydraulics market. Exact positioning of stabiliser legs on crane trucks, for example, is essential to ensure the physical integrity of people and machinery. Sensors in mobile hydraulics must meet very high standards as they are used in extreme conditions.

Sensors used in construction machines must be reliable, robust and resistant. They are primarily used in mobile applications to detect the position of telescopic booms and stabiliser arms. They must reliably show the position regardless of external factors such as rain, snow, abrasive and adhesive dust, temperatures below -20 °C and falling rocks and timber.

WayCon Positionsmesstechnik has developed the MH draw-wire sensor line for mobile hydraulic applications in construction machines and equipment. This mobile hydraulics line features a modular concept, providing the user with maximum flexibility and safety.

In addition to common selection criteria (e.g. measurement range and signal output) the customer can choose the protection class (up to IP69K), measuring cable thickness (up to 1.5 mm), temperature range (up to – 40 °C), design, accuracy and much more to suit the application. Safety-related requirements further include redundant signal outputs.

The position of the legs and the telescopic cylinder is simply transmitted in the form of an analogue measurement signal (potentiometer, 4-20 mA, 0.5-4.5 V, 0-10 V) or even redundant (2 independent sensor elements).

In addition to the CANopen interface, a variable analogue interface with additional switching output is also available. This interface provides the customer with the maximum efficiency by simply learning a new measurement range, eliminating complex reprogramming of the vehicle control system.

Rough approaches to the construction site or poor springs can subject the sensor to large shocks and vibrations. All WayCon MH series draw wire sensors therefore feature a highly dynamic spring package to ensure the sensor "arrives" safely at the site.

The sensor can even be pressure washed at the end of a dusty workday on a roller bearing, mobile excavator, track loader, harvester or simply on a mobile elevating work platform. So the IP69K protection class not only protects the sensor in extreme conditions, but even from occasional excessive cleanliness.

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...

Im Focus: Entangled atoms shine in unison

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.

The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...
