Inclinometers measure the angle with respect to the direction of the force of gravity in one or two axes. These Inclinometers are based on robust MEMS technology, and their modular design makes it easy to optimize each sensor for a specific application. What’s more, for certain models, the handy configurator enables the end user to easily adjust the sensor according to preference.

Inclinometer Application Example
Boom lifts (or ‘cherry pickers’) come in all shapes and sizes, but they have one thing in common: every type must be equipped with an inclinometer. First, to verify that the machine is level before raising the boom; then to continuously check for potential instability during operations.
CANopen safety sensor for safety applications
We offer various safety inclinometers and accelerometers (Acceleration Sensors) that are certified compliant with SIL2 (IEC 62061) and PLd (as per EN ISO 13849).
This certification makes these sensors suitable for use in safety applications. The safety sensors are available in both the standard QG65 reinforced plastic housing and the QG76 stainless steel housing.
