Rope Speed and Slew Angle Sensors
The MIPEG Rope Speed and Slew angle sensors are digital encoders engineered into the winches or slew system.
The angle sensor will pick up the rotation of a shaft. This shaft may be a direct coupling or a geared/linked shaft to a load hoist winch or a boom hoist winch to monitor Rope Speed and Direction. As a Slew Angle Sensor, the unit is directly coupled or geared/linked to a shaft which gives a slew ratio to monitor crane rotation about its axis.
The angle sensors can be provided as a traditional rotational encoder, absolute encoders or even as proximity sensors reading target discs.
All sensors may be supplied to suit standard marine environment or hazardous condition,
