Rotary position sensors for mobile hydraulic applications

Danfoss DST X800 wire position sensor is developed to ensure a robust and high-performance solution for applications. The stability control of e.g. a crane, telehandler or aerial platform is kept under control with draw wire sensors that determine the withdrawal of lateral stabilizers at different positions; on same applications the draw wire on the boom.

Danfoss DST X800 series uses contactless Hall technology with measurement ranges up to 8.3m.

The sensor is designed for off-highway applications and resistant to shock and vibrations, and come with both Ratiometric or CANopen output.

Single and redundant sensor types are available, making the complete portfolio suitable for safety-critical applications.
