TÜV Certified PROFIsafe Inclination Sensor

Due to its redundant sensors and internal monitoring measures, it achieves the classification according to SIL2 or PLd. It can therefore be operated directly on a safe controller. It provides a safe tilt angle with a resolution of 0.01 degrees. The version with a measuring axis has a measuring range of ± 90 degrees and is suitable for all tilting or rotating movements around an axis. The 2-axis version with a measuring range of ± 20 degrees for both axes, however, for the leveling of platforms and vehicles. To calculate the complete safety function with calculation tools such as Sistema, a VDMA characteristic library is available for download. The standard version comes with M12 plugs for the supply and for two PROFINET ports. It can be integrated into the existing PROFINET network in a line or tree structure. LEDs for supply voltage, link and status facilitate commissioning and troubleshooting. It has a sturdy aluminum or stainless steel housing and can be supplied with protection ratings up to IP69K.
