TURCK sensors cover all the right angles


TURCK has enhanced its line of precise, compact inclinometers with the introduction of a single axis device featuring dual programmable setpoints.

Like all TURCK inclinometers, this device utilizes MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical
system) technology to solve unique feedback requirements.

This new offering replaces the traditional analog output with two discrete outputs and is
programmable for settings such as on or off points, span and hysteresis. Users can simply program the inclinometer using a teach adapter.

Single axis inclinometer sensors may be used in a wide variety of industries and incorporate an adjustable measuring range of 360 degrees.

TURCK inclinometers measure angular tilt in reference to gravity. At the heart of the TURCK inclinometer is an MEMS device that incorporates a micro-electro-mechanical capacitive element into the sensor.

The element utilizes two parallel plate electrodes: one stationary, and one attached to a spring-mass system. Movement causes acceleration that produces deflection in the
non-stationary electrode.

This results in a measurable change in the capacitance between the two plates that is
proportional to the angle of deflection. The microboard design in the MEMS technology
allows for a compact form factor and high accuracy — all within a robust, industrialized

The inclinometers are IP68 rated, with a temperature range of -30 to 70C.
