AX060401 Inclinometer

SAE J1939, 1 DT15-4P Connector, Internal CAN termination  

The inclinometer is designed to accurately measure inclination angles in two directions X and Y in the range of ±80º. It is functional up to ±90º. If vertically installed, it can measure an inclination angle in one sensing direction in the ±180º (0-360º) range.

The angles are measured by a two-axis MEMS sensor, which senses acceleration caused by the gravity force in two orthogonal directions. The output signals from the MEMS sensor are normalized and processed by a microcontroller. The resolved angles can be then sent to the SAE J1939 or CANopen® fieldbus.

Due to a powerful microcontroller, the inclinometer can perform pre-processing of the angular information according to the users’ needs. Its internal architecture is user-programmable and allows users to define their own custom functionality using a set of predefined internal functional blocks. All application programming is performed through SAE J1939 CAN interface by the PC-based Axiomatic Electronic Assistant® software.

The inclinometer is IP67 rated and is packaged in a cast Aluminum housing with 1 Deutsch IPD p/n DT15-4P connector.
