End position detection on dump trucks

To ensure the load bed of a dump truck has been fully lowered, it is necessary to monitor the end position of the dump truck body. The IMS inductive proximity sensor has been specially developed for the requirements of construction machinery. Thanks to its high electromagnetic compatibility, temperature resistance, and impact and vibration resistance, it is very well suited for use in this application. It has an E1 type approval. The inductive sensor can also be used to detect the pedal position in the driver’s cab.
