ASM Sensors Introduces New Magnetic Inclinometer POSITILT®

June 20, 2007
ASM Sensors, Inc. introduces a new, innovative inclinometer series, PTAS2, with ranges from ±15° to ±180° in a robust, IP 68 rated stainless steel housing. This industrial grade sensor has been tested to withstand the harsh conditions which make it suited for a wide range of applications such as factory automation machines and robotics, mobile cranes, draw bridges, adjustable platforms and off-highway construction equipment. The PTAS2 series is the latest addition to the POSITILT® family and is available with three different absolute analog outputs: 0.5-5 V, 0.5-10V and 4-20mA with a typical resolution of 0.1°. The measurement range is available from ±15° to ±180° in 15° increments. The compact 1.7-inch diameter housing with servo flange mounting allows for quick and easy installation. Since the PTAS2 is based upon wear-free, multi-Hall Effect position sensor technology, it offers significantly increased reliability in extreme environments. The PTAS2 is tested to withstand 100 g shocks and 20 g, 10 Hz-2 kHz vibration.
