Position Sensor Solutions for Off-Highway Construction, Agriculture and Mining Equipment

Encoders and Position Sensors for Off-Highway Equipment for Construction, Agriculture and Mining Equipment

BEI Sensors' products have stood the test of time, providing a high degree of reliability and performance, while withstanding the severe conditions posed by off-highway and industrial vehicle applications. These demanding applications rely on precise position sensing and redundant safety for steering and wheel systems, steer-by-wire systems, gear sensing, pedal and throttle control, hand acceleration, valve and control logging, cabin controls and more. Whether exposed to dirt, extreme temperatures, or moisture, the rugged construction of BEI Sensors encoder products ensures their accurate and reliable operation day after day, year after year.

In mining applications, BEI rotary encoders and position sensors help with everything from shaft elevator control and ore cart positioning to the control of heavy equipment such as excavators and earthmovers. Speed and position sensors for motion control in this environment have to withstand high shock and vibration, along with extremely dusty and wet conditions. BEI manufactures rugged encoder and sensor products designed to deliver optimum performance in these demanding operations. In addition, when hazardous area certifications are required, BEI Sensors offers a number of products certified by UL, CENELEC, LCIE and MSHA rating agencies.
