POSITAL is expanding their TILTIX family of inclinometers with a new line of lower cost, lower resolution instruments. These new tilt sensors will have an accuracy of ±0.5° and a resolution of 0.01°. (By comparison, current models have an accuracy of 0.1°.) For many slope or tilt monitoring applications in cranes, construction equipment, agricultural machinery and water handling facilities, half-degree accuracy is entirely acceptable. Our new lower-resolution units are less expensive than our high-end products, which makes them a useful alternative for designers of cost-sensitive systems.
Single Axis (360°) or Two Axis (±80°) Measurement
Shock Resistant up to 100 g
Tough Fiber-reinforced PBT and Heavy Duty Die-cast Aluminum Housings Available.
Available Interfaces: Analog Voltage or Current
IP69K, Protected from Dust, Water or High Pressure Cleaning
Like other members of the TILTIX family, the new lower-cost inclinometers are available in single-axis (0−360°) or dual axis (±80°) versions. Durable PBT plastic housings meet the needs of most applications, with extra heavy-duty cast aluminum housings available for very harsh working environments. They are rated for shocks of up to 100g. The output interface for these instruments is analog (voltage or current) which makes them straightforward to integrate into simple analog control or warning systems. The zero setting can be set through a input pin.Click here for more technical information about MEMS inclinometer

Inclinometers with Dynamic Acceleration Compensation
POSITAL has introduced new versions of its TILTIX inclinometers that can provide reliable tilt measurement for moving equipment. These new devices use a combination of electro-mechanical accelerometers and gyroscopes to provide accurate measurements, even if the instruments are subject to strong accelerations.
Compensation of External Accelerations
Clean Measurement During Dynamic Movements
Well Protected up to IP69K
Compact and Robust Die-cast Housing with Integrated T-Coupler
Wide Temperature Range from -40 to +85°C
Product samples will be available in March 2017. Subsribe to our Newsletter to get all information when the samples are available!
Innovative Algorithm for Reliable Results
POSITAL’s TILTIX inclinometers are based on MEMS accelerometers that rely on monitoring the effect of gravity on a tiny mass suspended in an elastic support structure. Unfortunately, accelerations (e.g. due to rapid motion of the equipment to which the instrument is attached) will introduce errors in the tilt measurements. This problem is eliminated by adding a set of electromechanical gyroscopes to the inclinometers. Signals from these gyroscopes are used to compensate for the effects of acceleration, with the result that the new dynamic TILTIX inclinometers can be used reliably on mobile equipment such as construction machinery, mining equipment, cranes, agriculture machinery and anywhere else where sudden movements, shocks and vibrations are likely to be encountered. The compensation of these external acceleration forces is critical for every machine where clean measurements during dynamic movements are needed. The new dynamic TILTIX inclinometers have a measurement range of ±180° in two axes that covers the full range of motions.
