Bestech Australia presents the Sherborne Schaevitz LSOC/LSOP ‘L’ DC-operated, gravity-referenced servo inclinometers, suitable for various applications. This sensor is fully self-contained, and connection to a DC power source provides a readout or control device for a complete operating system.
Servo inclinometers are an extremely sensitive transducer used for measuring horizontal and vertical inclination with virtually infinite resolution using a ‘taut band’ detection mechanism.
This mechanism and construction means that the 4-20 mA output is proportional to the sine of the angle of tilt. Measuring ranges of between ±3° and ±90° are available for this inclinometer.
Typical applications for gravity-referenced inclinometers include:
- Bore-hole mapping, dam and rock shifts and other geophysical, seismic and civil engineering studies
- Ballast transfer systems for offshore barges, ships and other marine applications
- Large machinery installation and other electronic level applications
- Level control and calibration systems
- Pipeline levelling, setting tilt of grading machines, crane overturning-moment alarms, and other heavy duty construction control requirements
The gravity-referenced servo inclinometers feature an extremely rugged unit enclosure and can withstand 1500g shock, meaning that harsh environments are no problem for these sensors. Electrical terminations are via 6-way connector (LSOC) or solder pins (LSOP).
