Posital-Fraba (Germany) has announced its heavy-duty Tiltix inclinometers. They are enclosed in rugged die-cast aluminum housings designed to withstand accidental impacts from tools, rocks, or unsecured pieces of equipment.
THE INCLONOMETERS FEAUTURE REINFORCED CONNECTION POINTS for heavy-duty cables and connectors, mounting holes for ¼-inch (M6) bolts, and solid flanges that won’t be damaged by high bolt-tightening torques. The devices feature IP69K-rated protection from dust, water, or high-pressure sprays.
These inclinometers are suitable for control systems, for construction and agricultural machinery, military vehicles, mobile equipment, and drilling/mining equipment. They are available as single axis (360°) or two-axis (±80°) models. The measurement cells, which work by monitoring capacitance changes that occur when a small spring-mounted mass moves in response to changes in position, withstand shock loads of up to 100 g.
The maximum resolution is ±0,01° and each device is temperature compensated and individually calibrated at the factory to provide measurements in any environment. Devicenet instrument interfaces are available, along with CANopen, J1939, analog (voltage or current), and serial digital (SSI). Dual-output CANopen versions support daisy-chained cabling configurations that simplify wiring systems.
