Length/Angle Sensor, gSENS LWG
Published on : Friday 03-09-2021
Valuing the past with tried and true length/angle sensors of the gSENS LWG family.
Length/angle sensors have performed vital roles across a vast range of mobile applications for decades. Their job is to capture an object’s geometric parameters – its angle and length – and convert them into electrical signals. WIKA Mobile Control (formerly PAT and Hirschmann MCS) has been supplying the reliable, precise sensors of the gSENS LWG series for many years. They are flexibly configurable with different cable types and lengths, housings and signal transmission technologies to suit the needs of different customers. And their compact, robust design also makes them ideally suited for use in harsh environments.
WIKA Mobile Control has leveraged its many decades of experience to develop the new, improved version of the gSENS LWG length/angle sensor in response to market requirements. Redesigned for enhanced ease of integration, robustness, serviceability and reliability, the new-generation gSENS LWG is the ideal solution for mastering the present and future challenges of mobile machines. It boosts the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of both new and older cranes.
The gSENS LWG length/angle sensors excel with optimised integration. The new generation delivers one-to-one electrical and mechanical compatibility with all type 15x, 2xx, 3xx and 5xx gSENS LWG models and the corresponding PAT brand products. Without altering their mechanical design or electrical connections, they have been modified to greatly speed up on-site installation in machines. This makes it straightforward to redesign machines without the need for any design, electrical, mechanical or software-related modifications. The same holds for the controller – the brain of every mobile application – as full compatibility is ensured. Proven communication, compatible fault responses and the same object directory for the CANopen interface combine to minimise the time and work required to integrate the new product. There is also no need for a completely new inspection or type test.
