1-6200-008 RS-485 Signal Conditioner

The 1-6200-008 RS-485 signal conditioner can be used with any Fredericks electrolytic tilt sensor. A single signal conditioner can be connected to one dual axis sensor or up to two single axis sensors, providing output from 0% to 100% of the sensor’s range. Fredericks dual-axis TrueTILT sensors can also be mounted directly on the board. Temperature sensors are included on all of our signal conditioners.

Sensor and signal conditioner combinations can be mounted in a housing with potting to provide up to IP67 environmental protection. See the Inclinometers section for more details.
