TURCK Rolls Out Rotary Single Axis CANopen Inclinometer

TURCK has unveiled a new rotary single axis inclinometer. This new offering expands the company’s dual axis CANopen inclinometer for angular tilt detection.

"Rotary Single Axis Inclinometer"

The single axis inclinometer has around 360 degrees of monitoring range providing increased application versatility through which users can simply and efficiently monitor mechanical arms like moving components or tensioners. CANopen communications enables easy adoption to mobile equipment, like monitoring and reporting position of vertically rotating parts, outriggers, or booms.

The angular tilt in reference to gravity is measured using single axis inclinometer. MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical system) devices within the center of the TURCK inclinometer integrate micro-electromechanical capacitive elements within the sensor that uses two parallel plate electrodes, where one is attached to a spring-mass system and the other remains stationary. Movement leads to acceleration, giving rise to deflection within the non-stationary electrodes, thereby resulting in measurable alteration in the capacitance between the two plates relative to the angle of deflection. The object directory ensures all measured values and parameters. MEMS technology’s micro board design enables a compact, accurate inclinometer that is safely housed within a sturdy industrialized package.

TURCK single axis inclinometers provide rugged, IP68-rated housing. THry provide reliable operation in temperatures varying from -40°C to +70°C.

TURCK is a well-established firm that offers high quality sensing, connectivity and network products. With these high-efficiency products, manufacturers can upgrade their automated processes.
