TURCK Inclinometer Features Dual Programmable Setpoints with Two Discrete Outputs

May 2, 2011
TURCK single axis inclinometer offers dual programmable setpoints with two discrete outputs, replacing the traditional analog output. Utilizing MEMS technology to solve unique feedback requirements, the inclinometer delivers an adjustable measuring range of 360 degrees, making it ideal for a broad range of industries.
TURCK has enhanced its line of precise, compact inclinometers with the introduction of a single axis device featuring dual programmable setpoints. Like all TURCK inclinometers, this device utilizes MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical system) technology to solve unique feedback requirements. This new offering replaces the traditional analog output with two discrete outputs and is programmable for settings such as on or off points, span and hysteresis. Users can simply program the inclinometer using a teach adapter.Single axis inclinometer sensors may be used in a wide variety of industries and incorporate an adjustable measuring range of 360 degrees.TURCK InclinometersTURCK inclinometers measure angular tilt in reference to gravity. At the heart of the TURCK inclinometer is an MEMS device that incorporates a micro-electro-mechanical capacitive element into the sensor. The element utilizes 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.The microboard design in the MEMS technology allows for a compact form factor and high accuracy—all within a robust, industrialized package. The inclinometers are IP68 rated, with a 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.  For other TURCK product or technical information, contact: 1-800-544-7769 • www.turck.us[email protected].
