Sensors and encoders

Enabling greater precision and productivity

Automated steering systems in agricultural vehicles, combined with GPS technology, enable the operator to make more accurate passes – and in turn, reduce fuel, seeds and fertilizer consumption.

To meet these needs, SKF has developed a compact and maintenance-free solution, based on a sensor-bearing unit that is integrated into the steering system. It enables the operator to switch safely between automatic and manual control in connection with steering corrections (e.g. due to obstacles or end row turns).

For original equipment manufacturers, this compact unit eases assembly and increases manufacturing output.
