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.
