Turck offers a dual-axis Q42 inclinometer sensor with a CAN open interface for angular tilt detection. The Q42 measures angular tilt in reference to gravity. A MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical system) device incorporates a micro-electromechanical capacitive element into the sensor using two parallel plate electrodes, one stationary and one attached to a spring-mass system. Movement causes acceleration, which produces deflection in the nonstationary electrode and results in a measurable change in the capacitance between the two plates proportional to the deflection angle. All measured values and parameters are accessible via the object directory, and the micro board design in the MEMS technology permits a compact inclinometer in a robust package. The sensor offers angle measurements of ±10°, 45°, and 60° and may be used in various industries to solve feedback requirements needing level platforms, control tilt angle, or dancer control.
