Mobile Equipment Automation

How are Automation & Electrical Devices Used in the Mobile Equipment Industry?

Many heavy-duty industries use mobile equipment in their processes. Industries such as construction, agriculture, and municipalities all have a large variety of mobile equipment. Each relies on automation equipment such as sensors or controls to make sure processes are being carried out safely and efficiently.

Many of these equipment pieces rely on control systems to move their equipment – excavators require controls to scoop materials, fire trucks rely on motors to deploy their aerial ladders, and garbage trucks have safety sensors to make sure no one is injured when picking up refuse.

Part of what separates these electrical devices from other types of products is their resistance to extreme high and low temperatures. Mobile vehicle electrical components are typically rated for use between -40 °C to 125 °C.

Automation & Electrical Products in the Mobile Vehicle Industry

Advance Electrical & Automation provides automation solutions for system integrators (SIs) and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the automotive and mobile equipment industries. Specifically, we help customers design entirely new systems or integrate products into existing systems. We offer a range of products, including programmable controllers, obstacle detection sensors, robust connectors, and more. Depending on your unique requirements, we can help you find the right products that meet your needs.

Sensors & Vision Technologies

Many types of sensors are useful for mobile vehicle equipment applications. Products from proximity sensors, pressure sensors, and temperature sensors all increase safety in a work area by keeping track of any interference or dangerous environmental changes. For instance, our laser displacement sensors ensure precision measurements for aerial boom lifts, while inclination sensors provide critical balance data for cranes operating in rugged terrains. Our robust collection of sensors and vision systems, including proximity, photoelectric, and vision sensors, along with ultrasonic, laser displacement, rotary encoders, LiDar, temperature, pressure, vibration, inclination, acceleration sensors, and limit switches, are designed to withstand the most demanding environments.

Switches & Signals for Critical Operations

Control and e-stop switches, indicator lights, buzzers, alarms, and joysticks from our inventory guarantee uninterrupted operations. Our e-stop switch is a safety staple in cement mixers, allowing for immediate shutdown in emergency scenarios.

Machine Safety Equipment

Machine safety equipment such as safety controls, light sensors, and safety switches provide emergency shut-off capabilities in case a situation becomes dangerous for the operator or people around. Items like safety light curtains can scan an area and report on any dangerous situations. Safety switches are there in case an electrical issue happens and systems need to be shut down.

Seamless Connectivity for Uncompromised Performance:

We understand the essence of reliable connections in mobile equipment. Our sensor cables, cordsets, contact blocks, terminal blocks, distribution boxes, sockets, and connectors are engineered for seamless integration and durability. For waste refuse vehicles that require robust wiring systems, our raw wire and cable solutions offer the resilience needed for continuous operation.

Durable Enclosures & Accessories for Ultimate Protection:

From non-metallic to high-grade stainless steel enclosures, we provide protective solutions that shield sensitive automation components from the harsh elements. With added features like thermal management and enclosure lighting, our enclosures ensure that system integrators can deliver reliable and durable control boxes for material handlers.
