Product Announcement from Rieker, Inc.
The highly sensitive SBS1U Servo Inclinometer Sensor Box from Rieker Electronics has a ±1° measurement range, extremely high resolution, and a ±5V output signal for use with long signal cables for reduced error susceptibility. The compact unit is contained in a rugged IP65 rated pressure-cast aluminum housing with a seawater proof finish. The integrated sensor allows for highly sensitive single axis inclination or acceleration measurements.
Within the box are 2 sections: a voltage amplifier with a ±5V output signal and a separate highly stable voltage regulator that supplies power to the sensor. The amplifier contains an active low pass filter to suppress interference signals and transient suppression to ensure conformance to EMV regulations. The sensor and the amplifier are galvanically isolated from the housing to avoid interference from signals generated by undefined earth currents. An asymmetric 0 to 5V or a symmetrical ±5V analog voltage signal, each mutually inverse, can be measured on both signal outputs. The tightly sealed PG metal cable connector and the compact dimensions of the housing enable this high quality measurement system to be used under severe operating conditions.
The SBS1U is recommended for use where extremely precise inclination and acceleration measurements must be taken under difficult conditions and harsh environments. Typical applications include stability and vibration monitoring in the building, machinery, and construction industries as well as inclination monitoring of bridges, dams, towers, tunnels, slopes, and all structures in risk of earthquakes or collapse.
