Rugged Electronic Inclinometer for Construction and Off-Road Lift Equipment



Rieker Inc, Aston, PA, introduces an improved line of rugged inclinometers (or tilt indicators) designed for off-road forklifts, material handlers, and equipment with aerial booms. The H4 Series provide single axis inclination sensing in a rugged environmentally protected Zinc metal housing.

Available with 0-5V Analog or Digital Serial (RS232) Outputs, the unit incorporates a liquid capacitive sensing element for exceptional vibration damping with integrated temperature compensation. Depending on the required accuracy, two levels of temperature compensation are available. Angle ranges are ±30º, ±45º, and ±70º.

The H4's Serial Output (RS232) transmits the angle, in decimal format, in a continuous stream of readings - 250msec per reading, 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit.

The H4 has a common footprint (with adjustment slot) making it easy to retrofit or field-replace less durable sensors. Applications include boom angle indication and platform leveling - built for rugged harsh environments to provide accurate angle monitoring.

Rieker® Inc, is a leading manufacturer of accurate, rugged inclinometers and tilt indicating instruments, since 1917. Rieker's full line of tilt switches and inclinometers can be seen at www.riekerinc.com.
