Steering angle detection on heavy trucks

For simpler and more reliable maneuvering of heavy trucks carrying large payloads, many of these vehicles have sensors for controlling the steering angles of each individual drive axle. The AHS/AHM36 absolute encoder is ideally suited for this task. With its IP 66/IP 67 enclosure ratings, as well as an operating temperature range of –40 °C to +85 °C, it reliably detects the absolute position of the respective wheels, even in harsh environments. The positioning data obtained in this way enables heavy loads to be positioned precisely.
