Tilt Angle Sensor

Tilt Angle Sensor


Tilt angle values of a platform stand for important measuring data as a part of the safety and control system of machinery. Angular measurement is, for instance for equipment levelling, performed in such cases by means of dual axis pendulum systems. Transducers of that type contain inside a robust splash-proof aluminium case of protection degree IP 65 to IP 68 oil-damped pendulum systems, the tilt angle dependant swing of which is measured, depending on the application, either by a potentiometric, non-contact inductive or an optoelectronic angular encoder. For measurements relevant to safety, the pendulum swing per axis is detected with redundancy i.e. by means of two mechanically and electrically independent pendulum systems. The output signal, representing the tilt angles, is provided either in form of an analog resistance, current or voltage variation or as a digital signal - with interface bus - as well.
