Signal Conditioning Board supports RS-485 communications.
May 24, 2012 -
Capable of driving 1 or 2 electrolytic tilt sensors, RS-485 Mini-Signal Conditioning Board can be integrated into larger control systems. Microprocessor-based PCB can be supplied with built-in dual-axis TrueTILT(TM) sensor for ±60° measurement, or operated with up to 2 external sensors to meet specific resolution, axis, and measurement range requirements. Both include built-in temperature sensor, 3-5 Vdc regulated power voltage, and RS-485 output of 16-bit in ACSII.

New RS-485 Mini-Signal Conditioning Board Provides Cost-Effective Solution That Can Be Integrated into Larger Control Systems Or Used to Evaluate Fredericks' Company Tilt Sensors
The Fredericks Company, a leading ISO9001:2008 registered manufacturer of electrolytic tilt sensing and inclinometer products, has announced availability of the RS-485, the newest addition to their Mini-Signal Conditioning Board Series.
Specifically designed as a cost-effective solution that can be integrated into larger control systems or used to evaluate Fredericks' comprehensive line of tilt sensors, the RS-485 signal conditioner is a production-ready, microprocessor-based printed circuit board capable of driving one or two Fredericks electrolytic tilt sensors.
The stand-alone board with RS-485 communications capability is Part # 1-6200-008, but it can also be provided with a built-in wide range dual axis TrueTILT(TM) sensor for +/- 60 degree measurement range Part # 0729-1754-99. It can also be operated with up to two external sensors to meet specific resolution, axis, and measurement range requirements.
Each version includes a built-in temperature sensor, power voltage of 3 to 5 VDC (regulated), power supply current 9 mA @ 5 VOC or 3 mA @ 3.3 VDC, and RS-485 output of 16 bit in ACSII. Other mini-signal conditioning boards available in the series include SPI, Analog/PWM, and RS-232.
