The new generation of F99 inclination sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs are easily configured to provide incline or tilt angles between 0° … 360° on a standardized 4 mA … 20 mA or 0 V ... 5 V analog interface. Switch outputs are also provided in order to monitor limit angles.
Inclination sensor models with CANopen interface are available for integration into commercial vehicle applications. Parameterization of the inclination sensor is performed via CANopen or with teach-in buttons, depending on the sensor type.
