Inclinometers, also called tilt sensors are designed to measure the angle of an object with respect to the force of gravity. These tilt or level meters determine pitch and/or roll angle and output these values via the appropriate electrical interface. Inclinometers are easy to integrate to an application, because there is no need for mechanical linkages other than just the installation itself – a real advantage for design engineers. Posital developed several inclinometer types to have a suitable solution for different applications for each industry. Accurate measurement of the degree of tilt or inclination from a horizontal position is very important for many motion control systems or to ensure safety.
Well Protected up to IP69K
Rugged and Compact Design
Measurement Range ±80° (Dual Axis) or 360° (Single Axis)
These inclinometers are equipped with a 3D MEMS accelerometer and a 3D MEMS gyroscope. A smart algorithm combines the signal of accelerometer and gyroscope to eliminate the effect of accelerations (e.g. due to rapid motion of the equipment), vibrations and shocks.
Compensation of External Accelerations
Accurate Measurement During Dynamic Movements
Dynamic Inclinometer Finder
These inclinometers are equipped with a 2D MEMS accelerometer as sensor cell. This type of inclinometer achieves a high accuracy in a static system or when the machine is only in a slow motion.
Accuracy 0.1° or 0.5°
Interfaces: CANopen, Analog Current, Analog Voltage, RS232, SSI, J1939, DeviceNet
