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 range. 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.
