High-precision single- and dual-axis inclinometers offer application versatility
Test & Measurement
Variohm EuroSensor's new SST300 series single- or dual-axis inclinometers
offer extremely high precision performance with a combined absolute accuracy
to +/- 0.01 degrees, and linearity of +/- 0.06% F.S., over a +/-5 degree
The robust and durable sensor is available in six measurement ranges up to
+/- 60 degrees and offers optional temperature drift accuracy to +/- 0.05
degrees at ambient temperatures between -40C and +85C. The SST300 series
also boasts exceptional precision for other important measurement parameters
including cross-axis sensitivity, offset, repeatability and hysteresis.
The compact cylindrical sensor measures just 50mm in diameter with a nominal
height of around 50mm. Three fixing slots on the base flange and generous
installation misalignment factor makes setting up the sensor
straightforward. The CE approved inclinometer's IP67 protection and
extremely high resilience to shock and vibration combine with a ?25000 hour
MTBF rating for exceptional reliability performance.
Aimed at demanding tilt monitoring applications from precision instruments
to drilling platforms and from automotive vehicle test to structural
monitoring, the comprehensive range includes a wide range of options for
output, mechanical installation and electrical connection. These include a
choice of RS232, RS485, CANopen or 4 to 20mA interfacing as well as
integrated Mil-spec connectors, says the company.
