LWG308 Cable Reel:

The cable reel houses the length-angle transducer, slip ring disc, and slip ring pick up (to feed and return A-2-B signal). The A2B cable goes through the drum and out to the tip where it wires to the Anti-Two-Block switch. A tensioned, tempered steel spring drives the reel.

The Length-Angle Transducer:

The length-angle sensor (LWG) is a combination of two transducers in cable reel, which is fitted at the base section of the boom. It measures the length and the angle of the boom. A reeling drum drives a potentiometer, which is the length transducer. Part of the length transducer is the length cable on the drum, which is a two-conductor cable (shield and core). It is connected to the anti-two-block switch at the boom head and to a slip ring body in the LWG. The angle transducer is fitted in the cable reel.


Additional Information:

  • Telescopic boom lengths up to 150 feet
  • Sensor Output signals via CAN BUS
  • The power supply voltage is +12/24 vdc
  • Exact measurement of boom length and boom angle

Typically used with the iFlex5 and iScout LMI systems, the LWG508 cable reel assembly includes CAN BUS boom angle and length sensors. The extension cable is the standard length of 139’.
