Positioning of the supports on a mobile crane

Space is often tight in construction sites in cities in particular. MAX linear encoders are integrated into the hydraulic cylinders of the four crane supports and help to position them precisely. This makes it possible to extend all four supports, provided there is enough space and if the respective task requires this. Precise load determination is also possible: this prevents the mobile crane from overturning.
