2-Axis Precision Inclination Sensor Module - Model: DWL 5500XY

Digi-Pas® DWL-5500XY is a 2-Axis Precision Inclination Sensor Module of accuracy (0.001° or 18µm/M or 3.6 arcsec) that specifically designed to be integrated into a machine/equipment/structure for real-time simultaneous monitoring of leveling status & vibration measurement. These intelligent inclination sensor modules are embedded with advanced MEMS technology sensor, developed for 2D planar leveling, tilt angle monitoring, alignment and vibration measurement.

Inclination sensor modules are tough, durable, waterproof, shock resistance, small footprint and enabled to communicate through various protocols such as USB, RS232, RS485 & Wireless Bluetooth .

Benefit

PLANAR & WIDE ANGLE RANGE MEASUREMENT
Precision levelling and tilt angles measurement essentially involve simultaneous 2-dimensional planes rather than single-axis. Digi-Pas® 2-axis intelligent inclination sensor modules having high precision and wide measurement range are capable of providing real-time levelling & vibration readings that empower application engineers to continuously monitor machine/equipment/structure angular positional status precisely and speedily.
These small footprint MEMS driven 2-axis inclination sensor modules effectively eliminate the limitations of using multiple single-axis sensors or bulky pendulum based sensors to achieve 2D levelling and planar angular measurements.
PROGRAMMABLE & USER-DEFINABLE SYSTEM
Digi-Pas® 2-axis inclination sensor module system is designed to be integrated into precision machine/equipment/structure enabling application engineers to instantly access angular positional status without the need for tedious and time-consuming programming.
The angular measurement system enables user-defined settings to activate any external connected peripheral devices at ease.
ACCREDITATION
DWL-5000XY Series Inclination Sensor Modules accuracy is verified by accredited 3rd party independent calibration & test bodies and National Metrology Centre traceable to SI standard and NIST, JIS, UKAS & DIN under CIPM MRA.
