Engcon’s tilt sensors improve excavator guidance systems

Engcon, the world-leading tiltrotator manufacturer, is developing its own tilt sensor for the market’s most common excavator guidance systems. The sensor will provide a clear interface, cheaper installation and facilitate support for users.

For a number of years, Engcon tiltrotators from the EC209 and up have been compatible with the market’s major excavator guidance systems. Some of the manufacturers also offer an automatic tilt function. Engcon is now taking things further by developing its very own tilt sensor.

“While our tiltrotators work extremely well with existing excavator guidance systems, we always felt there was room for improving the interface. We’re fixing that now with our own tilt sensor,” explains Peter Huczkowsky, Engcon’s chief information officer.

Peter adds: “The sensors we’ve developed have a razor-sharp interface, since Engcon provides all the necessary information from the tiltrotator via the DC2 control system cabling. This will save excavator-operators time and help to reduce installation costs, as the tilt sensor will be included as standard in our ePS installation kit – the Engcon Positioning System."

Tests are due to be carried out in 2019, with Engcon anticipating that its tilt sensor will be compatible with the market's most common excavator guidance systems before the end of the year.

Engcon’s tilt sensors will be retrofittable to Engcon's tiltrotator models from the EC209 up to the EC233.
