The draw wire sensors of the mobile hydraulic series MH120 were specially developed for the demanding area of construction machines and construction equipment. The sensor can be individually configured depending on the application, in which it is used. Small adhesive and abrasive particles with small grain size can easily be removed when using the open MH120 versions. Seawater resistant protective grating provide a maximum protection against larger foreign objects like tree branches. In case of applications with high safety requirements, thicker stainless-steel wire ropes are available, as well as redundant, analogue outputs. This mobile hydraulics series offers the possibility the perform accurate and cost-effective distance measurement on construction machinery.

The MH120 series comprises four different types of housings. Common to all versions:

• Aluminium housing with bore holes for the mounting

• Easy rope fixation by rope clip, secured against twisting

• Stainless steel wire rope

• Sensor element inside an enclosed housing

• M12 connector system or cable output

• Dynamic spring drive with PA6 case
