Inertial Aerosystems is adding four new sensors to its range of precision tilt sensors. Manufactured by USA-based Applied Geomechanics, the ceramic sensor enclosure design delivers much improved stability, repeatability and robustness, at lower cost.
The four sensors fall into two categories. The first is a mid-range ceramic tilt sensor assembly, the model 84053, which is constructed with an aluminium housing to give superior thermal and mechanical stability. It has fast warm-up, a +/-3degC linear range and a resolution of 0.0001degree (<1.75 microradians). Temperature range is -50 to +125degC. Dimensions are 44.2 x 23.6 x 18.3mm and weight is 24g. It is mounted on an anodised aluminium bracket for strength and ease of installation.
The other model in this category is designated the 59577 and is available without the mounting bracket, but the same performance. Its dimensions are 38.2 x 5.8 x 16mm.
For wide-range tilt sensing, the model 84064-02 has a linear range of +/-60degrees and a resolution of 0.001degree. The aluminium-housed sensor has fast warm-up and excellent thermal, mechanical and long-term stability performance. It is mounted on an anodised bracket for strength and ease of installation; the small, lightweight assembly attaches directly to the elements that require measuring without unbalancing or altering their performance. The operating temperature range is -50 to +125degC, with dimensions of 44.2 x 22.6 x 17mm and a weight of 22g.
The other model is designated the 59579-02 and is available without the mounting bracket, but with the same performance as the 84064. Its dimensions are 17.8 x 41.6 x 15.2mm.
These innovative products have applications right across industry and research and are suitable for use where space and weight are at a premium. The sensors are fully compatible with Applied Aeromechanics' range of signal conditioning units.
