The next-generation LWG

The new gSENS LWG length/angle sensor for mobile cranes extends this successful product series to ensure the safe and reliable use of new and existing machines. This latest-generation sensor replaces previous types (also for the PAT brand) one-to-one with up to 25-year backward compatibility.

gSENS LWG Next Generation

  • One-to-one substitute for all type 15x, 2xx, 3xx and 5xx gSENS LWG sensors

  • Electrically and mechanically compatible with existing types

  • Latest safety standards: EN 13849 PL d/Cat. 3, CANopen Safety, improved safety chain

  • No need to change the control system

  • State-of-the-art hardware components with robust electrical connections

  • Redundant, gold-alloy-plated slipring bodies

  • Quick and straight-forward for users to service
