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.
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.”
