Length & Angle Sensor

Kar-Tech’s Length & Angle Sensor measures the extension of a telescoping cylinder and its angle with respect to gravity. This is an ideal sensor for many applications, ranging from measuring boom length and angle on cranes and telescopic man lifts to measuring positions of outriggers and counterweights.

As is the case with all of Kar-Tech’s products, this sensing device is made to withstand the harsh environment of mobile applications. These sensors are available with analog, radio, and CAN outputs.
