Mobile hydraulics

Mobile hydraulic systems are used for example in construction, agricultural and forestry machinery. Where high output power combined with minimum weight is required this form of power is particularly effective, thanks to the exceptionally high power density of hydraulic systems combined with low space requirements.

An important parameter for satisfying the constantly increasing demands in terms of:

  • extreme pressures
  • demanding temperature profiles
  • increasingly compact designs
  • increasingly globally defined operating conditions
  • lowest failure rates
  • longer service lives
  • stricter emissions standards

is the prompt, contact-free measurement of shaft speed in modern mobile hydraulic control circuits. RHEINTACHO speed sensors perform this task to the highest levels of customer satisfaction.

The company has focused on the measurement of rotational speed for over 115 years; this is reflected in the extent to which RHEINTACHO speed sensors exceed the industry standards.

With our well-founded technical and specialist know-how we can also provide support to you, even over longer project times, until a successful outcome is reached.



Task: A precise collection of actual values directly at the place of consumption (propulsion, toppers, and sugar beet transport systems) is an absolute requirement for the optimum balancing of performance requirements of HOLMER highperformance harvesters for various consumers.

Task: It is to be ensured that, when turning a shovel excavator, counter-steering in the other direction is only possible below a defined, low rotational speed.

Task: The speed and rotation of direction of hydrostatic drives are to be measured and passed on to the control system. The environmental conditions place extreme demands on the reliability and sturdiness of the sensors.
