Part no.: ADS – Analog
• Single or dual axis
• 360° (single), +/- 80° (dual)
• Voltage or Current interface
Inclinometers, also called tilt sensor, clinometers or slope sensors, are designed to measure the angle of an object with respect to the force of gravity. These tilt or level meters determine the pitch and/or roll angle and output these values via the appropriate electrical interface. POSTIAL ADS inclinometers are available with an analog output and are optimized for lower cost and OEM applications.

An Inductosyn is type of inductive position sensing device from Farrand Controls/ Ruhle Companies. Inductosyns work using the same basic physics as a transformer using planner arrays of inductive windings.
POSITAL has introduced an inexpensive and flexible alternative for safety-critical motion control systems. When combined with functional safety PLCs, these devices are suitable for applications that are required to conform to Performance Level/ PL d, Cat. 3, according to ISO 13849.
As collaborative robots expand into manufacturing environments the issue of safe motion continues to be a concern. Current design approaches involve adding force sensors, torque sensors, and sometimes proximity sensors. These adders along with more complex software control algorithms mitigate most of the concerns and result in slower operation. Unfortunately, these additional sensors also add significant cost and complexity.
Industrial Ethernet protocols are playing a growing role in automation, as they offer a number of advantages over traditional fieldbus protocols such as CANopen and PROFIBUS. Industrial Ethernet protocols are based on standard Ethernet technology, which provides a number of benefits, including:
