Inclinometer with tilt sensor for worker safety
The 0729-1761-99 Dual Axis CAN Bus SAE J1939 Inclinometer by The Fredericks Company is designed to prevent unsafe operation of industrial machinery. The inclinometer measures and signals tilt from a level position in applications such as construction and agricultural machinery, forklifts, scissor lifts, and telescopic handlers. The inclinometer uses a Fredericks TrueTilt wide-range electrolytic tilt sensor and signal conditioner to provide reliable tilt measurement. The device is ideal for measuring the angular movement of industrial machinery in applications that require a wide operating range and exceptional accuracy. Contained in a durable high-temperature Noryl plastic housing with urethane potting, the inclinometer can withstand extreme environmental conditions. Controller area network (CAN) specifications are factory set according to user requirements, with the standard unit using the Society of Automotive Engineers J1939 vehicle bus protocol. The inclinometer is IP66 rated, CE certified and RoHS compliant. It includes a supply voltage of 6 to 40 V dc, ±25-deg dual axis measurement and operating temperature of -40 to +85 C.
