This includes positioning tasks that are covered by precise distance measurement, object detection, angle and inclination measurement. Another category, motion control, offers reliable rotational speed and acceleration measurement. Efficient fluid handling requires process sensors to monitor levels, temperatures and pressures. Machines are heavily exposed to varying high mechanical loads which often need to be measured.
Sensors give the required feedback for determining the position of working implements. They further help automate the operation and load cycle in particular by providing feedback on e.g. bucket or trailer load, and steering position. These sensors ensure that the equipment is operated in safe way. Fluid sensors give feedback on the hydraulic system condition like temperature, level, or pressure.
Sensors built and tested for mobile vehicles make a difference in productivity, uptime, cost of operation and time to market. With many years of experience in the off-highway industry Baumer is able to provide the best fitting solution from a broad, mature portfolio
