High-Performance Analog and Digital Servo Inclinometer Series
with < ± 0.02 % Full-Scale Linearity



San Juan Capistrano, California, USA – Meggitt Sensing Systems has announced the North American market introduction of the Sensorex SX41100 series, a high-performance servo inclinometer family featuring analog and digital outputs and a maximum linearity error of less than ±0.02% FS. The series is designed to provide high-precision angular measurements within extreme testing environments, such as those typically found within civil structural alignment, crane and offshore platform safety systems, roadway and rail track leveling applications.


The highly robust Sensorex SX41100 series is designed to provide an output signal, proportional to the angle being measured, over a range of ±1° to ±70 °. The series is also part of the company’s best-selling Rugged Enhanced Digital Sensor (REDS) family, incorporating Meggitt’s own proprietary Sensorex digital hybrid compensation circuit design (HCN module), resulting in high-performance inclinometers with ±5V analog, 4-20 mA or RS232 and RS485 ASCII digital outputs and built-in active digital temperature compensation, reliably operating over a temperature range of -40° to +85°C (-40° to +185°F). Incorporation of an inertial mass with servo feedback, optical position pick-up and friction free mounting allow the Sensorex SX41100 series to provide high accuracy with excellent long term stability and high reliability. Because the inertial mechanism is immersed in oil, units have high shock and vibration resistance with a good damping factor. Units also operate from a 9-30V unipolar power supply and feature IP65 environmental sealing. Digital versions are delivered with software and digital data transmitted in ASCII format, allowing for direct communication with a standard PC, along with user-selectable parameters of data acquisition and display.


All Sensorex SX41100 series servo inclinometers are accompanied by a two-year comprehensive product warranty and are available thru Meggitt’s San Juan Capistrano, California, USA and Archamps, France-based facilities. For detailed technical specifications, drawings or additional information about the Sensorex SX41100 series or other products offered by Meggitt Sensing Systems.
