Position detection in aircraft tractors

It is important to check the exact position of the nose wheel receptacle flap in the nose wheel receptacle. The singleturn type of the AHS/AHM36 absolute encoder is used for this purpose. It can also be used in harsh ambient conditions thanks to its rugged and reliable fully magnetic sensor technology. Thanks to its small size, the encoder fits into even restricted installation spaces. Depending on the control architecture used, the devices are available with CANopen, IO-Link or SSI interface.
