By inclination is meant the relative angular tilt to the horizon or perpendicular. Any deviation from this home position (perpendicular) can be detected quickly and precisely with inclinometers made by the sensor specialist TURCK. Inclinometers make use of the local gravity for the measurement of angular tilt. The MEMS technology (Mikro-Elektro-Mechanic-Systems) on which the inclinometer is based, enables multiple application solutions for machines, roboters, vehicles and airplanes, agricultural and construction machinery, solar plants, transport devices or automatically adjustable furniture.
The TURCK product portfolio currently comprises inclinometers in rectangular housing Q20L60 and with the following angular ranges: ±10°, ±45° und ±60°. All versions feature analog voltage or current outputs.
Zero calibration +/-5° via pin 5 (e.g. with the teach adapter VB2-SP3).
