ASM introduces New MEMS-Based Tilt Sensor POSITILT®
ASM and Automated Control Engineering (ACE) introduce a new, innovative tilt sensor series, PTAM2, with ranges from ±5° to ±180° for single axis and from ±5° to ±60° for dual axes in a robust, IP67/IP69K rated all-metal housing. This industrial grade sensor provides a high resolution, linear output signal that is proportional to the inclination angle. The PTAM2 series has been tested to withstand harsh conditions which makes it suitable for a wide range of applications such as factory automation machines, robotics, mobile cranes, draw bridges, adjustable platforms and off-highway construction equipment.
The PTAM2 series is the latest addition to the POSITILT® family and is available with four different absolute analog outputs: 0.5-10V, 4-20mA, voltage sine(x) and CANopen with a typical resolution of 0.05°. Limit switch outputs are also available. The output signal response time is available from 0.1 – 2.0 seconds, in 0.1 second increments. The measurement ranges are available from ±5° to ±180° in 5° increments. The compact 36 mm (1.4 inch) diameter housing with servo flange mounting allows for quick and easy installation.
Since the PTAM2 is based upon non-contact and therefore wear-free, MEMS position sensor technology, it offers significantly increased reliability in extreme environments, especially under high mechanical shock conditions.
