High precision single and dual-axis inclinometers


Variohm EuroSensor’s new SST300 series of single or dual axis inclinometers offer high precision performance with a combined absolute accuracy to +/- 0.01º, and linearity of +/- 0.06% F.S., over a +/- 5º range. The robust and durable sensor is available in six measurement ranges up to +/- 60º and offers optional temperature drift accuracy to +/- 0.05º at ambient temperatures between -40 and +85ºC. The SST300 series also provides exceptional precision for other important measurement parameters including cross-axis sensitivity, offset, repeatability and hysteresis.

The compact cylindrical sensor measures just 50mm in diameter with a nominal height of around 50mm. Three fixing slots on the base flange and generous installation misalignment factor makes setting up the sensor straightforward. The CE approved inclinometer’s IP67 protection and extremely high resilience to shock and vibration combine with a ≥ 25000 hour MTBF rating for exceptional reliability performance. Aimed at demanding tilt monitoring applications from precision instruments to drilling platforms and from automotive vehicle test to structural monitoring, the comprehensive range includes a wide range of options for output, mechanical installation and electrical connection. These include a choice of RS232, RS485, CANopen or 4…20 mA interfacing as well as integrated mil-spec connectors.
