The inclinometer module operates in two measurement axes. In the perpendicular dual axes version, the measurement range is always +85…-85 degrees in each direction. Accuracy is +/- 0.2 degrees. The module includes configurable filtering for removing the effects of vibration or other interferences in angular measurement. Modules can be configured with an offset and resolution. The inclinometer module also offers angular velocity and acceleration information.
Power supply for the module is in the range of 9 – 35VDC. The module is protected against reverse battery connection, overvoltage, and load-dump situations. The inclinometer module is designed for harsh environments. It is mounted and encapsulated in a cast aluminum housing. The model, P/N: AX060001, has spring-loaded connectors on the circuit board with a PG 11 strain relief to accept a cable (not supplied) and is IP65 rated. An IP67 rated version of the dual axis inclinometer, P/N: AX060003, with 2 M12 connectors (5 pin) is available.
The sensor output is available on CANopen®. The CAN protocol is CANopen and conforms to CiA DSP410 device profile for inclinometers. Settings can be adjusted using commercially available CAN tools for CANopen®.
