Inclination Sensor

Model LPI

Product Description

As part of our Oil & Gas Series, tecsis LP now offers the Model LPI inclination sensor to measure inclination in the X, Y, or both X and Y directions (2-dimensional), used to measure the tilt angle of objects with respect to the horizontal. This unique sensor is useful as a safety component for measuring boom angle on construction cranes, platforms, and lifts. It also provides accurate data for leveling agricultural and commercial vehicles, monitoring drilling angles and derricks, or recording pitch and roll of ships.

This sensor can be configured to provide dynamic or static incline or tilt angles between 0° to 360° (single axis) or ±45° (dual axis) with a resolution of 0.01°. Pre-defined measuring ranges can be selected to suit the application, and switch outputs provide control based on limit angles.

Model LPI is designed for use in harsh industrial environments and outdoor areas with a rugged IP67-rated aluminum housing. The unit is highly stable across ambient temperatures from -40° to +185°F and experiences no gravitational error. Standard output is CSA approved intrinsically safe 4-20mA, with 0-5Vdc and CANopen also available.
