The single axis inclinometer has 360 degree rotational monitoring.
TURCK Australia introduces the new Canopen inclinometer, a rotary single axis inclinometer with a 360 degree monitoring range.
The single axis inclinometer measures angular tilt in reference to gravity, allowing operators to easily monitor mechanical arms, such as tensioners or moving components.
The inclinometer is suitable for mobile equipment, such as monitoring and reporting position of outriggers, booms or other vertically rotating parts.
At the heart of the instrument are MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical system) devices that incorporate micro-electromechanical capacitive elements into the sensor that utilize two parallel plate electrodes, one stationary and one attached to a spring-mass system.
The micro board design in the MEMS technology boasts a compact, precise inclinometer in a robust, industrialised package.
This rotary inclinometer offers IP68-rated housing and operation in temperatures ranging from -40°C to +70°C.
