TKE XY-CAN-EFS Inclinometer
Product code: TKE XY-CAN-EFS
Three-axis inclinometer sensor with CANopen protocol
The sensor can be used for measuring the lateral (X), longitudinal (Y) and vertical (Z) angle with respect to gravity. It can also simultaneously operate as a 360° (H) sensor in XY plane. Inclination measurings are based on the high accuracy accelerometer IC.
The XY-CAN-EFS has an IP67 rated housing made from acid proof steel and the electronics is encapsulated in a durable epoxy. XY-CAN-EFS is equipped with two M12-connectors for CAN and Power. The pinout in M12 connectors is according to CANopen standard. Communication-protocol with control systems is CANopen, according to CiA DS301 and the sensor follows Inclinometer device profile CiA DSP410.
Typical applications for XY-CAN-EFS are in mining machines and excavators boom-control, in snow-removal machines controlling the blades etc. Obviously this sensor can be used in several other mobile machines where accurate inclination measurement is necessary.
