2-Wire Inductive sensors confirm retraction of stabilizer legs in mobile cranes

Customer Application

 A manufacturer of mobile cranes uses two-wire inductive sensors with N.C. output function to detect the position of stabilizer legs as part of the vehicle safety system. Before the system will allow the driver to drive the vehicle away, sensors confirm that stabilizer legs have been retracted.

The 2-Wire range of DC, AC/ DC and NAMUR sensors is constructed on the Classics technology platform and includes sizes from 3 to M30, plus a 5 × 5 mm square-section type. Devices are available for embeddable or non-embeddable mounting and connection is by means of cable or connector.

With a sensing range up to 15 mm, Contrinex 2-Wire sensors ensure optimal equipment utilization, easy installation, and high switching frequency.
