Position sensor trio flexes new solutions for mobile hydraulics

Monday, April 8, 2019

Danfoss lifts functional safety to the next level with a full program of state-of-the-art rotary position, wire position, and inclination sensors.

For more than 30 years, Danfoss has delivered reliable, robust, and cost-effective sensor technologies for leading mobile hydraulic producers in the off-highway industry. Now, our portfolio is expanding to include three new types of position sensors for all machine types — providing OEMs with unrivaled flexibility and scalability to meet safety and environmental regulations.

We're proud to introduce our new rotary position sensors (DST X510 and X520), wire position sensor (DST X800), and inclination sensors (DST X710, X720, and X730).

All three sensor ranges are PLUS+1® compliant and offer seamless integration with development and service tools, ensuring your products get faster to market. And real-time remote access makes staying up to date even easier.

Both single and redundant sensor types are available. The three sensor types are produced according to PL d (EN ISO 13849-1:2015) and have sensor housing protection from IP67 to IP69K, making the complete portfolio suitable for safety-critical applications and harsh environments. At the same time, hall effect technology prevents wear and tear and ensures superior sensor lifetime.

Moreover, the new sensors offer ratiometric, CANopen, or SAE J1939 output options.
