Spencer Fluid Power offers a wide range of Eaton high-performance vehicle controls and sensor products that withstand the harshest environments to meet the needs of specialty vehicle applications.
Did you know that the harness is one of the most complex and costly assemblies in a vehicle? Eaton’s multiplexing solution eases configuration, decreases costly harness wires and the number of connection points by using digital communications, thus reducing the weight of the vehicle, the complexity of assembly, and simplifying debugging. Less wiring means more space in the cab, as well as increased cost savings for installation.
With the increased demand of multiplexing, there is an increased need for low current electromechanical switches
that communicate to vehicle body controllers. Eaton offers efficient electromechanical switches complementary in style to the multiplex switch module designs. In addition, sensors with embedded logic can reduce the cost and complexity of vehicle control systems. The onboard logic capability of modern sensors can diminish cabling complexity and control system I/O count, reducing the overall installed cost of a sensing and control solution.
Eaton solutions include:
- Electronic multiplex switch module (eSM)
- Electronic vehicle display (eVu)
- Sealed Vehicle Rocker (SVR)
The specialty vehicle market requires products to be flexible to meet many varied needs with a quick turn-around time. These include the option to purchase switch and labels separately, a broad spectrum of graphics and various colored frames and rockers. In addition, a broad range of sensor connectivity options, a variety of sensor types in industry-standard housing and easy-to-install sensors are in high demand.
Eaton engineers ergonomical total flexible control and sensor solutions with these needs in mind, including,
- New Generation Rockers (NGR)
- Euro SR
- Full-size Euro
- Industry-standard tubular and NEMA® -style sensor products
- Inductive proximity sensors with auto-configure outputs
In the specialty vehicle market, it’s necessary to have versatile and dependable switch enclosures and connector designs to protect electrical conductors against harmful damage from the surrounding elements. Eaton designs switch enclosures and robust sensors that can survive extreme environments anywhere on board the vehicle.
- Euro SR
- Full-size Euro
- Mechanical limit switches
- Inductive proximity sensors
High performance specialty vehicles demand durable, reliable products for maximized machine uptime, increasing productivity and reducing warranty costs. To address this, Eaton offers switches that are designed to survive the harshest and most difficult applications and sensors that have long operating ranges, increasing the survivability of the device.
- Mechanical limit switches and inductive proximity sensors
- Inductive and optical sensors with some of the longest detection ranges available
