Inertial Aerosystems is launching a new range of single- and dual-axis digital clinometers with RS232/RS485 serial and analogue outputs of tilt and temperature. The serial data is easily interfaced to GPS receivers, spread-spectrum radios and wireless Ethernet converters.
The internal sensor is a liquid-filled electrolytic transducer that has no moving parts. Five models in the range give customers a choice of single- or dual-axis, an angular range of +/-3 to +/-50 degrees with best resolution of 0.0001degrees and a linearity of 0.1 per cent of full span. An on-board facility is included that allows data logging via non-volatile memory and that comes with graphic display software. It is able to store up to 319 readings with a powerful command set to collect, process and store data or transmit to an external host. RS232 models have the option of a tilt switch output to operate alarms, programmeable controllers, etc.
Able to operate over a temperature range of -40 to +85 degrees C, the sensors are enclosed in tough die-cast IP65 enclosures measuring 120 x 80 x 60mm and weighing 550g.
These versatile products are used in antenna positioning, surface and subsea marine applications, structural and geotechnical monitoring, processing movements, monitoring industrial vessels, conveyor belts, tipper trucks and scientific research - to name but a few.
