Discreetly Located Tilt Sensors Do A Stellar Job

25 October 2012

Designer and manufacturer of high precision sensing technology, Penny + Giles, a business group of Curtiss- Wright Controls, is supplying its STT280 tilt sensors to Stellar Industries for a boom angle positioning application on its range of truck-mounted telescopic winchline cranes.

The Penny + Giles STT280 tilt sensors are being used on Stellar’s range of service/mechanic truck packages, which feature telescopic winch-line cranes mounted on service truck bodies. These vehicles are typically used by utility and municipal companies and related service industries requiring heavy lifting over long ranges.

Stellar’s 5521 telescopic crane is the first model in the range to feature the Penny + Giles tilt sensors and the first to use Stellar’s CDT (Crane Dynamics Technology) control system.

Commenting on the choice of Penny + Giles tilt sensors, Stellar’s sales and marketing manager Sean Moran says: "The main reason for specifying the STT280 is the compact design, which allows us to mount them in discreet locations on the cranes. A close look at the company itself also showed that Penny + Giles products are used extensively in defence and military applications, confirming that their products are robust and manufactured to an extremely high quality.”
