gSENS WGC

gSENS_WGCgSENS WGC angle sensors are a capacitive based absolute value angle sensor with CANopen interface.  This sensor uses the fluid-driven measuring principle (replacing the conventional pendulum drive), avoids mechanical friction and provides better accuracy. 

Typical applications include determination of a crane boom angle and all kinds of alignment and levelling tasks in mobile machines.

These angle sensors are based on a capacitive metercell consisting of two plates positioned in parallel to each other and a fluid which is introduced into the space between these two plates.

Features

  • Absolute value sensor
  • Fluid driven action
  • Wide temperature range
  • High degree of operational safety, even under extreme conditions
  • Improved rotative effect
