Mobile Equipment

Automated and electronically controlled systems abound in modern mobile equipment used in industries such as construction, material handling, mining, rail maintenance, agriculture and firefighting. It’s critical that sensor technology be robust enough to handle the shock, vibration, dust, moisture and other hazards common to mobile equipment operating environments.  For accurate control, often a rotary encoder is the preferred sensor for motion feedback, provide the temperature, ingress protection and other environmental ratings are suitable.

The Mobile Equipment industry typically uses encoders for the following functions:
