MEMS-based inclinometer

  • 31-Aug-2010 09:26 EDT

The PTAM27L series inclinometers from ASM Sensors, based on microelectromechanical systems technology, provide linear output for single- and dual-axis tilt angle measurement. The measurement range is ±15° to ±180°, in increments of 15°. For dual-axis versions, the measurement range spans ±15° to ±60°, in increments of 15°. The series is an extension of the POSITILT family of MEMS-based inclinometers. Wear-free sensing technology offers high resolution and is shock-resistant. The housing is rated IP64 and is 10 mm high, providing ease of installation in tight locations.

The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
NRL scientists have demonstrated metallic spin filtering at room temperature using ferromagnet-graphene-ferromagnet thin film junction devices.
Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
