Rugged inductive sensors prevent overloading of telescopic lifting arm on hooklift truck


A hooklift truck utilizes a hydraulic system for loading and unloading a demountable container. The driver engages a lifting hook with the container before lifting it onto the vehicle’s load bed. Rugged sensor systems detect the position of the telescopic lifting arm prior to activating the lifting sequence, ensuring it is not extended. Sensors must be mechanically robust and withstand harsh outdoors conditions.
