Industrial duty inclinometer measures single- or dual-axis tiltThe newly announced T-series industrial duty inclinometer from BEI Sensors is now available from Variohm EuroSensor. The sensor provides high-resolution (0.01 degree) and high-accuracy (0.1 degree) measurement of inclination (pitch and roll) or rotation movement with a dual axis range of +/- 60 degrees or an optional single axis measurement range of 360 degrees. For application flexibility the unit can be supplied with optional 4–20mA or 0.5–4.5V analogue outputs, with a CANopen version also available.

The fully encapsulated sensor is supplied in a choice of glass fibre-reinforced plastic or aluminium housing for durability. Its IP68 rating can be extended to IP69K with an optional sealed 5-pin M12A mating connector. A cabled version with connector is also available.

Measuring just 83 × 59 × 21.5mm (L×W×H) for the slightly larger aluminium housed unit, this compact inclinometer features advanced MEMS technology with integral linearity and temperature compensation for both offset and sensitivity to offer the best combination of precision, responsiveness and long life. Built to withstand high levels of shock and vibration, the T-series is aimed at demanding harsh environment-safe level position monitoring and tilt measurement applications for industrial equipment such as mobile cranes, forklifts, drilling towers, construction and agricultural machinery.
