Turck Inclinometer Sensors

The TURCK inclinometer is a dual or single axis sensor for angular tilt detection. These sensors feature compact rectangular housings, and may be mounted up to a maximum of +/- 85 degree angles. Inclinometer sensors may be used in a wide variety of applications to solve unique feedback requirements where the customer needs to level platforms, control tilt angle or control a dancer.

The new TURCK inclinometer measures angular tilt in reference to gravity. At the heart of the TURCK inclinometer is a MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical system) device that incorporates a micro-electromechanical capacitive element into the sensor that utilizes two parallel plate electrodes, one stationary and one attached to a spring-mass system. Movement causes acceleration that produces deflection in the non-stationary electrode. This results in a measurable change in the capacitance between the two plates that is proportional to the angle of deflection. These signals are conditioned to provide two analog outputs (0.1-4.9 VDC) or two current outputs (4-20 mA). The micro board design in the MEMS technology allows for a compact, precise inclinometer in a very robust, industrialized package. The inclinometer is IP 67 rated, with a temperature range of -30°C to 70°C.
