Automated Control Engineering Group (A.C.E.) and Pepperl+Fuchs have launched an innovative F99 inclination sensor. This novel sensor is being supplied country-wide by A.C.E and features an inclination sensor operative with fieldbus technology, supplying reliable and precise data based on position.
The working of the device follows the profile as that of the CiA 410 CANopen device as detailed according to CiA 301. The sensing unit is enclosed in a robust metal shielding, supplying superior impact protection and is IP68/69K certified. The sensor is protected in the metal enclosure by means of a single screw.
The device is capable of detecting the position in two axes, thus serving a wide variety of applications. Its 360° calibration range is unconstrained for measuring all the angles and positions. The sensor can be designed to meet the functions, based on the requirements. The CANopen bus system provided enables its use in portable machine having bus systems. The system can be widely deployed in commercial vehicle sector, rail and marine vessels, transport and loading systems and in building services engineering.
Automated Control Engineering Group (A.C.E.) is a leading provider of process and automation control system, serving industrial, food, water, mining and petrochemical sectors.
