Inclination Sensors

Inclination sensors are devices based on a MEMS transducer interrogated by a microcontroller, which provides a suitable output using an algorithm.

Our sensors, also known as inclinometers, are compact and highly resistant to mechanical shocks and weathering thanks to their anodised metal casing.
Part of our inertial sensor range, Optoi inclinometers are available as 1- or 2-axis models with certified CANopen interface, with accuracy down to 0.05°, and analogue with voltage or current output.

What is the purpose of an inclination sensor?

Inclination sensors with MEMS technology are used in various applications. They are primarily used to check the flatness of work equipment, forklifts, aerial platforms and hoists. They can also be used for monitoring the position of moving mechanical parts, e.g. photovoltaic tracking systems.

Possible customisations:
  • Measurement range
  • Cable length, connector
  • Response time
  • Redundant versions
  • Hybrid versions with voltage/current output + CANopen output
