Tilt Sensor Keeps Mobile Machinery On The Level

FSG's PE-MEMS-x/y-i/GS60L series cost-efficient two-axis inclinometers measure tilt angles of the x and y axes up to ±60°. Measured values for each inclination axis are transmitted via a 4 mA to 20 mA output. Featuring a wear-free micro-electromechanical measuring system, a robust, IP67-rated plastic housing, and easy connection via a 4-pin M12 plug, the tilt sensor is ideally suited for use in mobile machinery.


Typical applications include detecting inclinations of vehicle platforms or angular position measurement on boom arms of construction machinery. The 3000 digits/16 mA resolution and ±0,25° accuracy also enable it for many other applications. The operating temperature range is -30°C to 70°C. The sensor case with a 50 x 50 mm footprint is 35-mm high including the central M12 connector. It has four M4 screws holes for mounting. For more details, visit FSG Fernsteuergeräte.
