Sensing The Tilt With Fredericks Company's Latest Release

[Satnews] The Fredericks Company has introduced the 0729-1760-04 ±10° Dual Axis RS-485 Inclinometer.

By measuring and signaling 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 Fredericks TrueTILT 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. It includes supply voltage of 5 V DC, ±10° dual axis range, and operating temperature of -40 °C to 70 °C.

With an established history of outstanding customer support, The Fredericks Company designs and assembles their products at its Pennsylvania-based facility, where they maintain full control over production of their devices.
