Rugged and accurate 1-axis & 2-axis inclinometers
Featured Product from Lika Electronic
Lika's IX series 1-axis and 2-axis inclinometers with analogue and CANopen interface are robust, precise and high quality and provide accurate and reliable information about tilt and rotational movement even in the most critical environments.
IX tilt sensors base on MEMS (Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems) technology.
The measurement range is from ±5 deg up to ±60 deg in 2-axis models and up to 360 deg / ±180 deg in 1-axis models with very high resolution (max. 0.001 deg) and very high accuracy (max. ±0.05 deg). They are compact, rugged and IP67 protected.
The robust metal enclosure and the resin-coated electronics allow for high protection against mechanical stresses, vibrations, thermal shocks (range of the operating temperature: -40°C +85°C / -40°F +185°F), moisture, offshore conditions and load dumps.
IXA model provides current (4-20mA) and voltage (0.5-4.5V) analogue signals.
IXB and IXC models are equipped with CANopen interface and comply with DS301 and DS410 profiles. IXB is the high-performance model offering programmable 1-axis and 2-axis operation along with high resolution down to 0.001° and high accuracy down to typically ±0.05°. IXC model is available in either single (IXC1) or dual (IXC2) axis version with medium accuracy values (±0.2°) in the same resolution range. CANopen models further add complete diagnostics, programmable antivibration filter and an optional temperature compensation feature to highly reduce the thermal drift (0.002 deg/°C – IXB model only).
Cable and M12 connector options are available (other specific standard automotive connectors can be provided on demand).
IX inclinometers are also available in redundant version: all electronics is duplicated, i.e. two separate boards with independent circuits, components (accelerometer sensor, signal conditioning, power supply, microcontroller, output interface, ...) and cables for power supply and signal transmission are installed in the same compact package. They are perfect for safety-related applications according to UNI EN ISO 13849-1 standard that require maximum reliability and the safest communication.
Thanks to their robust construction Lika tilt sensors can safely operate also under dirt, moisture, vibration, shock and extreme temperatures and are suitable for use in harsh environments such as construction machinery, mobile equipment, utility vehicles, telescopic handlers, material handling, mobile cranes, excavators, shovels, bucket trucks, forklifts, agricultural and forestry machinery and equipment (tractors, harvesters, mowers, skidders, forestry harvesters, feller bunchers, …), solar trackers, marine installations. They further provide the highest levels of safety and performance for robotics, electro-medical equipment, telecommunications.
