World-first sensor platform for mobile machines

Second Quarter 2021 Other technologies

However dire or adverse the conditions are, mobile machines must work reliably under the harshest of conditions, including heat, cold, shock, vibration, water, mud or dust.

To ensure uninterrupted performance, these machines need sensors that detect and provide data continuously under all conditions. To acquire and send this data, Instrotech offers the world’s first modular sensor, PURE.MOBILE, developed exclusively for use in commercial vehicles. This technology platform promises more flexibility, robustness and security than ever before. It was designed and developed exclusively for position detection in mobile machines.

Every PURE.MOBILE sensor meets the EMC requirements for construction, agricultural and forestry machines, the requirements of E1 (UN ECE R10) for road vehicles and is based on wear-free, robust, magnetic sensing technology. The flexibility of the extendable modular design is also unique. The rotary encoders that use the PURE.MOBILE platform can be extended to include additional functions through option cards selected by the user. These include, for example, an integrated inclinometer, DIP switches for parameterisation and digital inputs and outputs. All of the sensors with PURE.MOBILE technology are also available in a safety version for applications up to Performance Level d (PLd). These features are rounded off by a large number of analogue and digital interfaces to choose from. This means greater flexibility, resilience and safety than ever before.
