FSG (Germany) has presented tilt angle sensors with shock compensation. They monitor the inclination of construction machinery and measuring tilt angles on ship platforms, working platforms, or oil and gas rigs.
The two-axis PE-MEMS GS70 devices feature the MEMS technology (micro-electromechanical measuring systems) and enable high-precision, redundant measurements. An additional gyroscope compensates mechanical shock. The sensors gauge x-axis and y-axis angles in a measuring range of ±60° and achieve accuracies between ±0,05° and ±0,3° depending on angle range.
GS70 sensors are available for cable connection with IP68 ingress protection or with a plug connector and IP67 ingress protection. A CAN interface supports CANopen and the CANopen Safety protocol for signal output. The housing is made from passivated aluminum. The devices are designed for a temperature range between -40 °C and +80 °C and meet technical safety requirements according to the IEC standards 61508 (SIL 2) and EN 13849 (PLd).
