gSENS_WGBThe gSENS WGB angle sensor is an extension of Hirschmann's existing angle sensor product offering.  These compact angle encoders are also offered as a tilt sensor or redundant angle encoder.  The gSENS WGB can be used both as an angle encoder in cranes and for measuring the tilt of machinery such as excavators, road surfacing machines, and graders.

These angle sensors are distinguished by their compact exterior.  The sensors mounting holes are located directly within the housing and allow installation on the left or right hand side of the boom (mounting plates are also available).  The gSENS WGB is available either with 4 ...20mA or a CANopen interface.
