Mobile machines & lifting technology

In lifting technology as well as in mobile machines, the monitoring of the movement or position is required for functional and safety aspects. Micro-Epsilon sensors are used in numerous measurement tasks to ensure a controlled sequence of movement.

Displacement detection of hydraulic diving platforms

Draw-wire sensors from Micro-Epsilon ensure that the towers are in the exact position, which is why the height is measured precisely. This is the only way to easily control this between 0.8 m and 3.5 m ...
