Robust inclinometers with 360º measuring range and CAN interface
With the QG65, Dewit Industrial Sensors (DIS) offers a highly robust inclinometer that will measure a full 360º rotation in relation to the earth’s gravity without reference parts. In addition it is fitted with one or two M12 connectors and CAN-open interface for easy installation.
The new QG65 is the latest addition to the Quadro-G inclinometer range, that include single, dual and tripple axis inclinometers. The sensor is suited for measurement of angular movement up to 360°; this is especially demanded for electronic control of the arms of mobile cranes when angular movement is greater than 180º.
This inclinometer is specified to withstand shocks > 20.000g. Additionally the micro-electronics have been potted to IP 67 in a compact metal housing with M12 connectors. This results in an easy loop through the CAN interface.
The sensors are suited for 8 – 30Vdc supply voltage and can be configured with different outputs like a 0,5 – 4,5V or 4 – 20mA analogue signal, or a CANopen interface. The output values of two axis are then combined to give a single analogue value for the 360° rotation. Also the separate X and Y values can be read from CANopen signals. The resolution is 0,1º and the accuracy is better than 0,1% of FS.
Finally this inclinometer is very easy to mount anywhere on the tilting object as it does not need to interface with any other object as a reference.
