Precision inclinometer uses separate sensor heads

Fluxgate World is launching the A6410 precision two-channel inclinometer that uses patented sensor heads; single-axis and twin-orthogonal-axis versions are available. These can be left in situ with the instrument connected only when readings are needed, allowing a single instrument to be used with several sensor heads. Custom software is provided for the display of readings on a standard PC. The 0.2arcsec resolution over the +/-5degree range makes the instrument suitable for a broad range of applications including structural geology, building structural integrity monitoring, tunnel and borehole guidance, military surveillance, precision platform levelling and security monitoring. The photo shows the A3401 single-axis precision inclinometer sensor.

Another new product is a development of the wind speed and direction unit already marketed for the marine and environmental monitoring markets. The unit senses the force on a ball mounted on a sprung stalk and, by using a larger size ball than in the marine version, the small air currents in buildings can be measured and monitored for heating and ventilation control and design, as well as similar applications where small air flows need to be measured.
