Inertial Aerosystems is introducing a new range of low-cost, dual-axis digital tilt sensors. Designated the DAS-XX-MA-232 range it comprises nine models, all of which are microprocessor-based and use solid-state, micromachined technology to produce temperature-compensated angular values over the range of +/-10deg, +/-15deg, +/-30deg full scale with resolution as good as +/-0.01deg.
Available as bareboard units or enclosed in a toughened ABS enclosure that measures 94 x 94 x 55mm and weighs only 25g, these devices are suitable for applications where space and weight are at a premium. Sampling of the two axes is made over 25ms with auto zero. Angle and temperature measurements are output as serial TTL signals. The dual-axis inclinometer exhibits low power consumption at 5V DC (optionally 7-30V DC) and high resistance to mechanical shock of 1000g, while the bareboard model measures 44 x 44mm.
The sensor is temperature compensated from 0-60degC with an option of -20 to +80degC. The enclosed model (5V) is available either without cable or as a plug-and-play device with a USB cable and software for graphic display of tilt and temperature.
Applications include platform levelling, pitch and roll, auto wheel testing, crane angle control, robotics, machine stabilisation, antenna positioning and agricultural machinery.
