"Extreme requirements reliably under control"

Robust sensors for work machines and heavy commercial vehicles

In outdoors applications, the requirements are tougher than in almost any other application area. Heat, cold, high shock and vibration loads or dirt, moisture and water put tough demands on machines and sensors.

Especially for mobile work machines and heavy commercial vehicles, the Baumer portfolio features a wide range of sensor solutions for virtually every conceivable application: from inclination measurement and angular measurement of rotating attachments to presence checks and position feedback of movable parts to load, hydraulic pressure and level measurements. Many sensors come with the commercial vehicle protocol SAE J1939.

The comprehensive Baumer portfolio features many sensor solutions with a proven track record in work machines and commercial vehicles,

including the MAGRES BMMS 58 cable-pull encoders with redundant acquisition of part location and integrated diagnosis. They are optimally suited for precise measurement of the boom extension and support position.
