Rieker Adds Dual Axis MEMS Inclinometer

Rieker Inc., Aston, Pa., has introduced the dual axis, micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS)-based inclinometer to the H4 Series. The H4PD sensor provides dual axis inclination sensing in a rugged, die-cast zinc housing. This unit incorporates an MEMS sensing element referenced to gravity with integrated temperature compensation over the industrial operating range of -40º to 85ºC. 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 center and slider flanges.

Features on the H4PD include dual axis angle measurement, digital PWM output, ±22° range, temperature compensated output, vibration and shock resistant, environmentally sealed to IP66, EMC protected, and mechanical zero adjustment. Designed for leveling and tilt/slope monitoring and platform leveling, the H4PD is ideal for material handling/process control equipment, aerial lifts, and cranes and derricks.
