Precise and reliable measurement in drives and mobile machines
For 40 years, Wachendorff has been offering sensors and automation products for mobile machines and municipal vehicles. In the beginning, they offered small and robust speed displays in vertical drilling machines as well as temperature displays in asphalt machines. For about 25 years, Wachendorff has also supplied incremental encoders as sensors for outdoor applications. Initially, they were used as speed sensors, consisting of a rotary encoder with a measuring wheel, as well as a robust mounting device, which produced the necessary contact pressure on the conveyor belts in quarries. Other applications included speed and position sensors on construction hoists, or speed sensors on wind turbines, often mounted on the slip ring.
