(1) The horizontal and vertical inclination angles of each middle trough are obtained using double-axis tilt sensors
arranged on each middle trough; therefore, the shape of the scraper conveyor can be determined.
Thermal based tilt sensors
are well suited to harsh and/or high vibration environments, where mechanical sensor solutions can exhibit false readings or other errors due to resonance and present long-term reliability issues.
In September, for example, Colibrys (Switzerland) announced its MS900 1 .D, a MEMS-based tilt sensor
targeted at industrial and aerospace markets for use in platform stabilization applications.
on the stick, boom, bucket and machine body continuously calculate the distance from the cab to the bucket teeth.
The solid-state analog tilt sensors
that we used in the study have an angular range of [+ or -]75[degrees] with respect to gravity with a resolution of 0.05[degrees] and sensitivity around 2.0 V/rad.
Plug in, turn up the stereo and away you go, using the gizmo's tilt sensors
and programmable aspects to recreate the slopes on the carpet.
This technology, developed with British Aerospace Enterprises, uses five gyroscopes and two tilt sensors
to ensure the machine stays upright and to compensate for inclines.
There are five gyroscopes and two tilt sensors
packed in the unit's "commercial sensor assembly." The rider's center of gravity is measured approximately 100 times per second.
In addition to remote access to contents and location information, Linde foresees future features such as tilt sensors
and accelerometers to detect when a cylinder is falling or has been dropped, as key to improving safety.
POSITAL (Hamilton, NJ) has added support for the Modbus RTU communications protocols to its popular TILTIX family of inclinometers (tilt sensors
Columbia Research Laboratories (Woodlyn, PA) has developed a family of electronic tilt sensors
based on force balance accelerometer technology intended for applications such as platform stabilization, surface mapping, and measuring tilt angles in remote locations.
PENNY + GILES, designer and manufacturer of high precision sensing technology, is supplying its STT280 tilt sensors
to Stellar Industries for a boom angle positioning application on its range of truck-mounted telescopic winch-line cranes.
