Compact MEMS Inclinometer for OEM Applications

 

Elmhurst, IL (January 27, 2010) - ASM Sensors, Inc. introduces its smallest addition to the POSITILT® inclinometer series that is available in single and dual axis versions. By using MEMS technology, this new inclinometer PTAM20 series is packaged into a very compact, flat housing making it ideally suited for OEM applications. The measurement range for the single axis version is available from +/-15° to +/-180°, in increments of 15°. For the dual axis version, the measurement range is available from +/- 15° to +/- 60°, in increments of 15°.

 

Due to its small size of approximate ¼ inch height and less than 2 inch diameter, the PTAM20 series inclinometer was designed to fit into the tightest locations in OEM applications. The enclosure is rated IP60 which is suitable for many instrumentation functions.

 

The maximum measurement range for the single axis version is +/- 180° and +/- 60° for each axis in the dual axis version. Each version is available with smaller ranges in +/- 15° increments. Several analog output types are available: 0.5-4.5 V, 0.5-10 V and 4-20 mA.

 

The resolution is 0.05° and the linearity is up to +/- 0.5°. Each version offers high shock resistance.

 

ASM Sensors, Inc. is a leading company in the development, manufacturing and marketing of linear and rotary position sensors as well as tilt sensors for use in industrial and commercial applications. With 30 years of experience in serving all sectors of industry, ASM sensors has set industry standards in position measurement by providing innovative products to help automate processes and to increase safety in the workplace.
