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.
