Leveling the excavator arm

To optimize the work routine of an excavator, the absolute position of the moving parts to each other must be known. Inclination sensors TMS/TMM88 reliably record this position by measuring the inclination of the upper and lower carriage and the excavator arm. Absolute encoder AHS/AHM36 on the respective arm joints can support the measurement.
