The Q42 line of dual axis inclinometers available from Turck Australia features a CANopen interface for angular tilt detection.

Q42 inclinometer sensors are part of the expanded range of inclinometers from TURCK.

The CANopen interface makes the Q42 inclinometer sensor ideal for use on mobile equipment and off-road vehicles.

Q42 inclinometers feature angle measurements of ±10, 45 and 60 degrees to suit a wide variety of industrial applications ranging from controlling tilt angle to levelling platforms.

Inclinometer Technology

TURCK Q42 inclinometers are designed to measure angular tilt in reference to gravity. At the heart of the TURCK Q42 inclinometer is a MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical system) device that incorporates a micro-electromechanical capacitive element into the sensor.

The sensor utilises two parallel plate electrodes – one stationary and one attached to a spring-mass system.

Movement causes acceleration that produces deflection in the non-stationary electrode. This results in a measurable change in the capacitance between the two plates that is proportional to the angle of deflection.

All measured values and parameters are accessible via the object directory. The micro board design in MEMS technology allows for a compact, precise inclinometer in a very robust, industrialised package.

TURCK's extensive line of products includes advanced sensors, measurement systems, instrumentation, connectivity, interface and networks for factory and process automation markets.
