Determining the length of square bales

The compact AHS/AHM36 absolute encoder can determine bale length on square balers. By detecting the absolute position of the measuring wheel, the encoder determines the feed rate, and, thereby, the bale length. Thanks to its dust resistance and reliable, fully magnetic sensor, it is particularly well suited to this task.
