F99 Inclination Sensors in Fire Fighting Vehicles

Precision leveling of ladders and rescue cages

F99 inclination sensors measure the longitudinal and transverse inclinations of the vehicle
F99 inclination sensors measure the longitudinal and transverse inclinations of the vehicle

In fire protection, it is extremely important that the ladder and rescue cage are level. The F99 inclination sensor from Pepperl+Fuchs is used precisely for this purpose by IVECO MAGIRUS Brandschutztechnik GmbH.

While leveling is automated with the vehicle controls, the inclination sensors provide the information regarding the relevant inclination angle. The high resolution of the F99 inclination sensors enables the precise leveling of rescue cages and rotary ladders, increasing  the safety of the rescue crews. The ladder and cage are adjusted during rotation so that the rescue cage always remains horizontal.

The accuracy and measurement range were not the only criteria that led IVECO MAGIRUS to choose Pepperl+Fuchs.
