Courtesy: The Fredericks CompanyThe 0729-1760-04 10-deg dual axis RS-485 inclinometer from The Fredericks Company is designed to measure and signal tilt from a level position. The inclinometer helps to ensure precise execution in applications such as semiconductor manufacturing, satellite dish alignment, robotic controls, aerial lift platform leveling and wheel alignment systems. The inclinometer uses a wide-range electrolytic tilt sensor and RS-485 signal conditioner to provide reliable tilt measurement. The device is ideal for measuring position in industrial applications to ensure accurate performance and consistent production. The inclinometer uses RS-485 communications, which allows up to 32 sensors on a single network to reduce wiring requirements. Additional benefits of this affordable device include low power consumption, small size, long life, and excellent resolution and repeatability. Features include supply voltage of 5 V dc, ±10-deg dual axis range, and operating temperature of -40 to 70 C.
