Press Release Summary:
Housed in environmentally protected, Zinc metal package, H4 Series provides single-axis inclination sensing with angle ranges of Â±30, Â±45, and Â±70Â°. Units are available with 0-5 V analog outputs, or digital serial outputs, which transmit angle, in decimal format, in continuous stream of readings. They incorporate liquid capacitive sensing element for vibration damping with 2 levels of integrated temperature compensation, depending on required accuracy.

Rieker Rugged Inclinometers for Construction and Off-road Equipment
Rieker Electronics Inc, Folcroft, 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.
