Leveling of the excavator arm in limited working ranges

When space is limited, precise control of the excavator arm is important to prevent damage to the surrounding infrastructure and pipelines in the ground. With the MAX linear encoders - integrated in the four hydraulic cylinders of the excavator - indirect measurement of the position of the hydraulic cylinders and therefore leveling of the excavator arm are possible. Maximum height and depth positions can be taught in by integrating the rugged sensors. This prevents collisions and supports the operator in his/her work.
