Axial Sensors

Carlson supports axial sensors from:

  • Prolec
  • MOBA
  • Transtronics
  • 3B6


We also provide a new sensor in partnership with MGBTech. Photographs below and an overview video coming soon. But these sensors can be configured as pitch/roll and angularity for excavators, shovels, etc. Additional specifications below but the benefit is that one sensor can be configured to address all 3D machine control applications and machines from dozers to compactors to excavators to salt water dredging to cable cranes, etc.

The sensors are software configurable for update rate and function. The sensors are also capable of emulating other sensors to allow single sensor replacement mixing brands on single CANbus. The sensors are also tested and calibrated before shipping so you are able to replace sensors in applications such as dredging, without having to calibrate the machine.

Exciting new sensor technology and more innovation to come.
