Inclination Sensor DWL-5500XY

DWL5500XY - Product Overview

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.

PROGRAMMABLE & USER-DEFINABLE SYSTEM
Digi-Pas® 2-axis inclination sensor module system (Sensor Module + Control Box) is designed to be integrated into precision machine/equipment/structure enabling application engineers to instantly access angular positional readings (+ an optional PC Sync Pro Software to extract and store data in Excel format) without the need for tedious and time-consuming programming.

The angular measurement system enables user-defined settings to activate/control any external connected peripheral devices at ease (see below suggested diagram). Alternatively, experienced engineers/experts may choose to download Digi-Pas Dynamic-Link Library to link with your own coding to directly extract measurement readings from sensor modules (without Control Box & PC Sync Software).

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.

2-AXIS INCLINATION SENSOR MODULE APPLICATIONS

Precision levelling and angle measurement/alignment tasks essentially involve surface planes that demand for 2-dimensional solution rather than the outdated single-axis ‘bubble’ vial method that indicates ‘bubble’ leveling status ‘one axis at a time’.

 

Digi-Pas® 2-axis precision digital level simultaneous displays of two-dimensional plane angles, effectively simplifying and resolve the hurdles of taking angles ‘one axis at a time’ iteration (tedious & time consuming task of trial-and-error) experienced when using those outdated single-axis ‘bubble’ or traditional digital levels to conduct surface plane levelling, tilt angle measurement, surface flatness profiling and precision 2D alignment tasks.
