Dynamic Inclination Sensor Imposes No Delays

The POSITILT PTK29 dynamic inclination sensor compensates dynamic influences to give correct values even when in motion, causing no delays to signal transmissions. The sensor measures inclination between ±180° with 1 axis or ±60° with two axes. Utilizing gyro-compensated MEMS technology, the position signal is instantaneous with no delays and has a static linearity up to 0.05°. The sensor can be mounted with selectable axis orientation and its electronics are completely enclosed and protected in a hermetically-sealed stainless steel housing. The 10-mm flat and 49.5-mm wide housing enables installation in space restricted locations. For safety critical applications, the sensor is also available in a hermetically sealed stainless steel housing with redundant output options. The sensor is available in protection class IP67.
