DST X710, X720 and X730 series, inclination sensors
Danfoss program of inclinometer sensors are developed to ensure a robust and high-performance solution for applications such as agricultural- and construction machines, as well as material handling equipment. These sensors are typically used in safety applications in order to keep the inclination of a machine, or just a part of it, a safety zone for working people, under control.
DST X800 series, wire position sensors
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.
The expanding demand for sensors
The demand for sensor technology is rapidly expanding. To comply with safety as well as environmental regulations, mobile hydraulic producers require more and more sensors in all machine types. Choosing the right sensor is crucial. We have made a checklist of key things to consider in your sensor specification.
