New WIKA MH-3 Pressure Transmitter for Mobile Working Machines

Determining problems and errors in the field just got easier with the new WIKA MH-3 pressure transmitter for mobile working machines. WIKA Instrument, LP captures the latest pressure sensor technology with the addition of the diagnostic function in the new MH-3 pressure transmitter.

The MH-3 builds on the features of the MH-2, introducing signal clamping in addition to the sought after diagnostic function. These features will keep machines running longer by reducing downtime and maintenance costs.

  • Load monitoring
  • Loads moment limitation
  • Hydraulic drive control
  • Fluids in mobile working machines

"Mobile machine manufacturers wanted a solution to allow field technicians the ability to diagnose problems quickly in order to get machines back into service. They also wanted a solution to the high warranty claims, in addition to solving the age old practice of replacing components until the failed component was found," WIKA's Senior Group Manager Business Development Jeff Placek stated.

The new MH-3 pressure transmitter fulfills these requests and much more. The MH-3 pressure transmitter was created for mobile working machines that operate under extreme conditions in harsh environments. Ideally suited for load monitoring and indication, as well as hydraulic drive control, the MH-3 can also be customized to customer specific applications.

Diagnostics: Allows field repair technicians the ability to quickly identify problems and get machines back into service, reducing the high costs associated with downtime and warranty claims.

Signal clamping: Eliminates out of range signals from the transmitter which could cause the machine to act erratically or completely shut down, resulting in unnecessary service calls.
