Solid-state MEMS inclinometers

  • 25-Jan-2010 03:24 EST

Sherborne Sensors’ T700 series inclinometers are designed to measure inclination proportional to sine of angle in one axis (model T710) or dual axes at right angles (model T720) in applications where space is at a premium. Available in ranges from ±30° to ±90°, the sensors feature a micromachined MEMS (microelectromechanical sensor) and incorporate air damping. Because the air damping is independent of temperature, the unit performs reliably over a range of temperatures. Units are housed in a lightweight, robust light alloy package and incorporate positive mechanical stops that confer high shock resistance and offer reliable over-ranging protection.
