Inclinometer NBN - 1

Inclination sensor on MEMS technology Interfaces: CANopen and Analogue Models NBN and NBA Number of measuring axes: 1 or 2 High vibration and shock resistance see datasheet NBN 12054/NBN14705 Output of acceleration ** (Special version NVA65...Bxx) orrection of tilt output signal due to C implemented gyroscope sensor (only at NBN - version 'G') utput of a velocity signal °/s O Registration of inclination in the gravitation field using MEMS sensors (Micro-Electro-Mechanical-System) with subsequent digitisation and linearisation via a controller. Data output is carried out via the CANopen interface or as an analogue signal. The inclination sensor has a stable aluminium housing (optionally stainless steel). Slots are available for mechanical alignment (up to approx. ± 7.5°). In the case of CANopen, one connector or one male/female connector combination can be selected optionally for connection purposes. Casting measures in the housing lead to the achievement of protection class IP 69K, e.g. for use under water. MEMS sensors are integrated circuits manufactured using silicon bulk micromechanical technology. These micromechanical structures are used to form dual capacities. If these structures are deflected in the case of acceleration, e.g. gravitational acceleration (g), this results in capacity changes, which are registered and further processed using measuring technology. Due to the differential capacity dependency described here, the output voltage follows the function U ∝ g * sin α. In this case, the angle α is the inclination angle of the sensor measured against the g vector. These sensors measure precisely, have a long service life and are very robust. The measuring axes operate independently of each other. The optional available gyroscope sensor is based on MEMS technology as well. * : On request at NBN with CANopen interface.

Inclinometers NBN and NBA Options - general description Only possible with CANopen: NBN Sensor with gyroscope correction, version 'G' (NBN with CANopen interface only) TWK has developed a new generation of inclinometers. They measure more precisely and faster than the standard inclinometers with averaging filter, and are insensitive to interfering acceleration and lateral inclination excursion. Due to the addition of a MEMS yaw rate sensor (gyroscope), it is possible to transmit a stable measurement value to the control system even during shock and vibration disturbances. The reaction time...

Inclinometer NBN - 4

SUPREME SENSORING At inclinometer versions without cross tilt correction the measured axis is no longer detected in case of an inclination in a second axis (cross-axis inclination) is greater than 30°. Meaning the sensor will go in an over flow stage (+180°). This feature is required since measuring accuracy decreases with increasing cross-axis inclination. Behaviour of the due to averaging: Dynamic, arithmetic averaging of the measured values is implemented in the inclinometer. This involves linear averaging over 1000 values, whereby a new value is recorded every millisecond. This results...

Inclinometers NBA Technical data, analogue Function The contactless MEMS sensor system is extended using a 12-bit D/A converter so that the measuring variable is available as an analogue signal from 0 (4) to 20 mA, 0 to 10 VDC or ± 10 VDC. The customer can adjust the signal path (CW or CCW) and the measuring range from ± 5° to ± 90° in 5° steps (i.e. 2,5° on each side. Example: from ± 5° is the next step ± 7,5°). The preset "centre of measuring range" value can be set (see explanations on pages 9 and 10). Electrical connection is carried out via one male connector M12, 8 pins, A-coded or...
