Rotary position sensors with and without shaft for mobile hydraulic applications

Danfoss DST X510 and DST X520 rotary position sensors are designed for use in mobile hydraulic applications, such as agricultural, construction, and material-handling machines.

Danfoss DST X510 and DST X520 series uses contactless Hall technology with measurement ranges up to 360°. 

All sensors are designed for off-highway applications and resistant to shock and vibrations and with high electromagnetic compatibility, and come with both Ratiometric, CANopen and SAE J1939 output.

Single and redundant sensor types are available and are produced according to PL d (EN ISO 13849-1:2015), making the complete portfolio suitable for safety-critical applications.

DST X510 sensors comes with shaft and DST X520 sensors comes without shaft and are E1 approved.

    DST X510 and X520 series, rotary position sensors

    These sensors are able to detect angles from ±15° up to 360° e.g. pedal accelerator, front or rear steering, suspension position, or cabin rotation.

  • DST X710, X720 and X730 series, inclination sensors
    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
    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.
