Inclination

Inclination sensors are a mems based sensor family that provide angular measurement relative to gravity. Depending on the sensor selected, these sensors are capable of single axis (up to 360°) or dual axis (X-Y) measurement angles ranging from 5° to 85°. Output choices include analog voltage, analog current, PNP, IO-Link, and CANopen. Inclinometers measure angular tilt in reference to gravity. TURCK inclinometers contain a MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical System) device that incorporates a microelectromechanical capacitive element into the sensor that utilizes two parallel plate electrodes, one stationary and one attached to a spring-mass system. The suspended electrode is free to move with the change in angle relative to earth's gravity. 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 voltage outputs (0.1 to 4.9 VDC) or current outputs (4 to 20 mA).
