Paving roundabouts, docking the truck to the paver, fast steering movements or moving the screed’s extending units were so far challenging for slope sensors. Because a conventional slope sensor can wrongly interpret acceleration as slope and then adjust the paver screed accordingly. For the paving result that means that unevenness in the asphalt can occur.
With MOBA’s new G-Slope Sensor MGS-0150, these are no more obstacles like these for paving a smooth asphalt layer. Because with this new sensor, that was especially developed for the use on asphalt pavers, neither impacts nor lateral acceleration have any influence on levelling during paving. With the integrated gyroscope, the sensor is able to recognize these impacts and there is no wrong adjustment of the levelling system.This way, the new sensor helps to achieve smoother results in asphalt paving.
The advantages of the G-Slope Sensor compared with a conventional slope sensor are:
- more stable measured value
- complete elimination of acceleration impacts when the screed width is changed
- no deviation of measured values by changing the screed width or other similar impacts
In all realistic application situations, the new G-Slope-Sensor proved its advantages as it leads to better paving results.
Compared to conventional slope sensors an additional gyroscope is implemented in this new sensor. The sensor is easy to mount, but it is important that is fixed on the paver on a rigid mounting without rubber buffers.
Of course the MGS-0150 sensor corresponds to MOBA’s quality standards, that means it is reliable and precise. With its robust housing is protected against environmental influences like rain or dust and corresponds to protection class IP67.
