Benefit

  • PLANAR & WIDE ANGLE RANGE MEASUREMENT

    Precision levelling and tilt angles measurement essentially involve simultaneous 2-dimensional planes rather than conventionally known as two independent single-axis. Digi-Pas® 2-axis intelligent inclination modules having high precision and wide measurement range are capable of providing real-time levelling, angular & vibration readings that empower application engineers to continuously measure and monitor machine/equipment/structure angular positional status precisely and speedily.

    These small footprint, 2-axis and high shock resistant MEMS driven inclination sensor modules effectively eliminate limitations associated with using multiple single-axis sensors or bulky pendulum/servo-based sensors to achieve precise 2D levelling and planar angular measurements. MEMS sensor contents no moving part, essentially requires little/no maintanance when compared to pendulum-based sensor.

  • PROGRAMMABLE & USER-DEFINABLE SYSTEM

    Digi-Pas® 2-axis precision 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.
