TURCK Single Axis MEMS Inclinometer Sensor Detects Angular Tilt Throughout Full 360 Degree Range

May 2, 2011
TURCK single axis inclinometer sensor detects angular tilt with an adjustable measuring range of 360 degrees. Utilizing MEMS technology that incorporates a micro-electro-mechanical capacitive element into the sensor, the inclinometer delivers precise measurements and solves unique feedback requirements.
TURCK introduces a new single axis inclinometer sensor for detecting angular tilt with an adjustable measuring range of 360 degrees. Inclinometer sensors solve unique feedback requirements for applications such as leveling platforms, controlling a dancer or controlling tilt angle in a diverse array of industries.TURCK's single axis inclinometer sensor measures angular tilt in reference to gravity. To deliver precise measurements, the inclinometer utilizes a MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical system) device that incorporates a micro-electro-mechanical capacitive element into the sensor. The device consists of two parallel plate electrodes, one stationary and one attached to a spring-mass system. As the inclinometer tilts with the attached equipment, its acceleration produces deflection in the non-stationary electrode. The result is a measurable change in the capacitance between the two plates that is proportional to the angle of deflection. These signals have been conditioned to produce a single analog voltage output (0.1 to 4.9 VDC) or current output (4 to 20 mA).The inclinometer's MEMS technology utilizes a microboard design that ensures high accuracy within a compact, industrialized package. To withstand challenging environments, this robust inclinometer is IP68-rated and offers a wide temperature range of -30 to 70° C.More information, specs, and photosTURCK is an industry leader providing superior quality sensing, connectivity and network products to help manufacturers improve their automated processes.
