Inertial Aerosystems is introducing a new range of economical miniature fluid-filled tilt sensors manufactured by Applied Geomechanics of the USA. The range consists of two models, both of which use ceramic material instead of glass to give a faster settling time, wider operating temperature range and excellent repeatability. It is claimed to cost less than existing and similar products.
The model 84064-02 has an angular range of +/-80 degrees with a linear range of +/-60 degrees. The resolution is less than. 001 degree, with an operating temperature range of -50 to +125degC and a weight of 22g.
For smaller angles of tilt, the 84053 has an angular range of +/-6 degrees and a linear range of +/-3 degrees. The resolution is less than .0001 degree (<1.75uRadian), repeatability is 0.0002 degrees and the operating temperature range is -50 to +125degC. Weighing just 9.5g, this sensor is claimed to have the best performance in its class.
All sensors in the range have a fast warm-up, high sensitivity, and long-term stability. They are mounted on an anodised aluminium bracket that strengthens the assembly and simplifies installation and repositioning. They can be used with any of the standard analogue or digital signal conditioners.
These quality products have many applications in structural monitoring, machine levelling, marine dynamics, attitude sensing, etc.
