A crane in an outdoor environment is exposed to a lot of stress. Cold, heat, sun, rain and snow all cause wear to the components. Leine Linde's absolute position encoders are used in cranes to position the winch and wheels so that the load can be safely lifted to the right place. The motors powering the system must be able to rapidly adjust their speed to the current weight of the load, and incremental encoders are used for this.
