H4PD Provides Dual-Axis Inclination Sensing

Rieker has introduced a dual-axis micro-electro mechanical systems (MEMS) based inclinometer to the H4 series. The H4PD sensor provides duel-axis inclination sensing in a rugged, environmentally protected housing. This unit incorporates a MEMS sensing element referenced to gravity with integrated temperature compensation over the industrial operating range of -40C to +85C.

The Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) output is linear with respect to the input angle directly. Small dimensions and common footprint make it easy for field replacement. The housing footprint is designed for retrofitting in the field without re-drilling mounting holes (common placement of centre and slider flanges).

The H4PD has applications in levelling and tilt/slope monitoring; platform levelling equipment; material handling/process control equipment; aerial lifts; scissor lifts; boom lifts cranes; and Derricks lift equipment/vehicles.
