Position detection of the steering cylinder

Precise positioning of the control for steering is a basic prerequisite for autonomous driving of mobile machines. The MAX linear encoder - integrated in the steering cylinder of the tractor - detects its position. In combination with the WGS driver assistance system, the steering cylinder can be positioned and the steering controlled.
