Turck introduces a single-axis inclinometer sensor for angular tilt detection with an adjustable measuring range of 360°. Sensors are suitable for off-highway applications to level platforms or control tilt angles. The Turck inclinometer measures angular tilt in reference to gravity. A MEMS device incorporates a micro-electromechanical capacitive element into the sensor with two parallel plate electrodes, one stationary and one attached to a spring-mass system. Movement produces deflection in the nonstationary electrode and changes the capacitance between the two plates proportional to the angle of deflection. Signals provide an analog voltage output from 0.1 to 4.9 V dc or a current output of 4 to 20 mA, and micro-board design creates a compact inclinometer in a robust package. Temperature range is -30 to +70°C (-22 to +158°F).
