Achieving accurate steering position with rotary sensors

Achieving accurate steering position with rotary sensors
A range of British designed and manufactured electric forklift trucks from Nexen Lift Trucks have specified the NRH272 rotary position sensors from Curtiss-Wright Industrial division’s brand family of Penny & Giles. To maximise storage space within a building footprint, aisle width in warehouses is being reduced and many lift truck manufacturers are having to adopt the latest technologies to ensure material handling vehicles can operate safely and effectively within these new narrow aisle environments.
