DIS Sensors Dynamic Inclinometer is now available from Laser-View Technologies!
The DIS Sensors Dynamic Inclinometer features continuous 2 axis angular measurement without extraneous noise in a single sensor module. It was designed to eliminate the spikes in angle measurement from vibrations and shocks arising from normal machine operation.
Running on an entirely new hardware and software platform, with the latest MEMS chip at its core, this innovative sensor combines a triaxial accelerometer with a triaxial gyroscope to calculate highly reliable angle values.
Why Use DIS Sensors Dynamic Inclinometer?
On any machine, the position of every part constantly changes due to a variety of factors, including operator actions. Machine designers use inclinometers and tilt switches to continuously measure all critical component angles. However, vibrations and intermittent shocks can contaminate these measurements.
A common solution is to incorporate additional sensors to separately measure the spurious accelerations and filter or smooth the spikes from the angle measurement. These adjustments are complex and costly, and the extra measurements and calculations often increase control system latency and impact machine safety.
DIS Sensors Dynamic Inclinometer gives a clean signal. With a form factor identical to the DIS QG65 range, the module combines both acceleration and gyroscopic angle measurement on three axes simultaneously. The resulting gyro-compensated signal supplied to the control system is clean and free of the influence of spurious accelerations and shocks. The angle data is transferred as a separate CANopen object for each axis.
The powerful integrated controller can be customized to process all input and output signals to suit each specific application, based on predefined usage profiles and a user-friendly configuration tool.
The results are safer and more responsive machines. The DIS Sensors Dynamic Inclinometer is an efficient, reliable, and cost-effective solution compared to traditional alternatives.
