MIPEG Boom Angle Sensor
- Installed on the side of the crane boom foot section,
using two bolts only
- Measures the boom inclination above horizontal
- Using "solid state" technology without any moving parts for
maintenance free, long service life

x 133 x 128mm (5.2 x 5.2 x 5”), the material is cast iron, hot dipped galvanized
and coated both inside and outside (weight approx. 8 kg/18 Lbs)
The sensor measures the boom angle. The hook radius displayed is
based upon the crane boom length and geometry, calculated so the operator will
have hook radius displayed in metres or feet.
The sensor is simple to install and is calibrated with using two
known radii only.
