ASM Sensors' PTAM27L series is an inclinometer based on MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) technology for single- and dual-axis tilt angle measurement. Designed for OEM applications, the PTAM27L series with its compact, flat housing is an extension of the POSITILT family of MEMS-based inclinometers. This wear-free sensing technology offers high resolution and is shock-resistant. For single-axis versions, the measurement ranges span from ±15 to ±180°, in increments of 15°. For dual-axis versions, the measurement ranges span from ±15 to ± 60°, in increments of 15°. The housing is rated IP64, and with a height of 10 mm (0.394 in), the PTAM27L can be easily installed into tight locations. Several analog outputs and corresponding excitation voltages are available. With an operating temperature range of 0 to 60°C (32 to 140°F) full scale, the PTAM27L offers 0.1° resolution, ±1° linearity, and ±100 x 10-6/°C temperature stability.
