January 15, 2013 - With 0.1 accuracy and 0.01 resolution, liquid-based BSI Inclination Sensors detect deviations from horizontal axis over full 360, contact-free and absolutely. Capacitive sensors are suitable when inclination angles need to be precisely detected or rotary movements must be constantly tracked. Featuring IP67-rated metal housing and temperature range of -40 to +85C, sensors are suited for wind power stations, solar-thermal power plants, oil/gas production plants, and medical technology.

BSI Inclination Sensors - For Special Demands


The new, liquid-based BSI inclination sensors from the sensor specialist Balluff detect deviations to the horizontal on an axis over a full 360 contact-free and absolutely. With an extremely high accuracy of 0.1C, a resolution of 0.01 and a temperature drift of just 0.01% /10K, they are the ideal choice when, in complex applications, inclination angles need to be precisely detected or rotary movements must be constantly tracked.

BSI inclination sensors feature a compact and robust metal housing with an enclosure rating of IP 67 and can be easily installed in systems with limited space. With an expanded temperature range of -40C to + 85C, the sensors are virtually predestined for outdoor applications.

The highly precise, high-end sensors show their true strength, howev-er, where deviations from the horizontal or to the vertical axis are to be determined with high resolution and accuracy: e.g., in wind power stations, in solar-thermal power plants, oil and gas production plants and in medical technology, for example, in computer tomography and irradiation facilities.

Balluff BSI inclination sensors are based on a capacitive measuring principle and are equipped with a liquid-based measuring cell. These consist of four capacitors filled with a liquid dielectric. Depending on the inclination of the sensor, the "horizon" of this medium covers the capacitors differently, causing the capacitance – as measure for the inclination angle – to change. The analog output signal from 4 – 20mA is scaled linearly over the angular range of 360C.
