Inclinometers with Modbus RTU Interface
POSITAL’s TILTIX inclinometers are now available with Modbus RTU.
Modbus RTU is openly published and royalty-free, which has led to it becoming a de-facto standard for simple, robust and cost-efficient data acquisition and control systems, built around standard PLCs.
Modbus RTU nodes can be connected through RS-485 serial connections with up to 32 devices connected to the bus.
Single Axis or Dual Axis
Both single axis and dual axis versions of these new Modbus RTY inclinometers are available.
The single axis models will measure a full 360[Symbol] range, whereas the dual axis models can measure up to [Symbol]80°.
The POSITAL TILTIX inclinometers offer shock resistance up to 100g, so they are suitable for many industrial applications.
Two Housing Options
For harsh environments, die cast aluminium housings are available. Where there is little risk of the inclinometer being struck by debris or other moving objects then the tough fibre reinforced PBT housing may be more appropriate.
The measurement resolutions, zero setting and direction are all programmable via API.
POSITAL’s TILTIX inclinometers with Modbus RTU interface are ideal for solar energy systems, where it is necessary to monitor the spatial orientation of multiple collectors or reflectors.
They can also be used on production machinery used in applications such as like textile manufacturing and paper manufacturing, or they can be used on material handling equipment and in many other applications where a practical, low-cost position control solution is required.
