Application examples

Automatic guided vehicle systems

Draw-wire encoders are used in driverless transport systems with lifting devices. These measure the lift height using the draw wire to move transported goods in or out of storage. Different requirements apply to the linear measuring technology with respect to size, measuring length, travel speed, linearity, and communication interface. Kübler provides the most extensive portfolio of draw-wire encoders on the market. True to the motto: The right solution for any application.

Mobile crane

Draw-wire encoders are an important component of the load monitoring system in mobile cranes. They precisely determine the position of the support and the telescopic mast. All measurements can be taken from the cab at a glance. With its comprehensive product portfolio, Kübler covers the measurements of all geometric data. Whether draw-wire encoder, inclinometer, or encoder, customers can choose from a large number of variants to adapt products to specific application requirements. For mobile cranes, these are variants such as size, measuring length, travel speed, linearity or communication interface.

Working platforms

Wherever people are deployed, only the highest safety standards count. Kübler draw-wire sensors monitor the position of the cage and the support – for work platforms with their own drive as well as mounted on a trailer or truck. Flexibility, speed, and safety are the most important characteristics of working platforms. The requirements for fast setup and access as well as absolute stability regardless of the inclination or condition of the ground require precisely fitting sensors for monitoring and automation. Draw-wire encoders and inclinometers also play an important role here.

Medical technology

Medical technology applications require the highest of precision. Draw-wire sensors from the Performance Line range offer linearity up to ±0.02%. Draw-wire sensors are often chosen for their flexible integration into the application. To change the path of the measuring cable, Kübler also offers suitable deflection pulleys. In addition to precision, the compactness of products is also an important factor. Linear measurement technology from Kübler is an important component of patient tables in a wide variety of areas such as MRI or X-ray.
