New Tilt Sensor Enables Accurate Performance in Industrial Applications
HUNTINGDON VALLEY, Pa., January 27, 2016 – The Fredericks Company, an industry-leading innovator and manufacturer of tilt and vacuum measurement products, introduces the 0729-1760-04 10° Dual Axis RS-485 Inclinometer. By measuring and signaling tilt from a level position, the inclinometer helps to ensure precise execution in applications such as semiconductor manufacturing, satellite dish alignment, robotic controls, aerial lift platform leveling, and wheel alignment systems.
The inclinometer uses a Fredericks wide-range electrolytic tilt sensor and RS-485 signal conditioner to provide reliable tilt measurement. The device is ideal for measuring position in industrial applications to ensure accurate performance and consistent production.
The inclinometer uses RS-485 communications, which allows up to 32 sensors on a single network to reduce wiring requirements. Additional benefits of this affordable device include low power consumption, small size, long life, and excellent resolution and repeatability. It includes a supply voltage of 5 V DC, ±10° dual-axis range, and operating temperature of -40 °C to 70 °C.
“The Dual Axis RS-485 Inclinometer provides reliable tilt measurement for a wide range of applications where high precision leveling is critical,” said Heidi McKenna, president of The Fredericks Company.
With an established history of outstanding customer support, The Fredericks Company designs and assembles its products at its Pennsylvania-based facility, where they maintain full control over the production of their devices.
