WG143/9 Angle Sensor (iFlex CAN):
- Accuracy: < 0.2°
- Ambient temperature range: -40°C to +70°C
- Output signal: 4…20 mA, CANopen
The angle transducer is a potentiometer driven by a weighted pendulum that is oil damped. Both length and angle transducer are connected to a CAN bus controller board, which is connected to the bus system.
The System measures the angle of the main boom of the machine with an angle sensor. The angle sensor is contained within the cable reel, located on the left side of the main boom.
The signal runs from the angle sensor to the Can-Bus converter board, both located in the cable reel. From there, it travels as digital information on the CAN-Bus to the pressure transducer, which acts as a T-connector to the main CAN-Bus running to the central unit.
