Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania – The Fredericks Company, a manufacturer of tilt and vacuum measurement products, introduces the 0729-1760-04 ±10° dual axis RS-485 inclinometer. By measuring and signaling tilt from a level position, the inclinometer helps to ensure precise execution in applications such as semiconductor manufacturing, satellite dish alignment, robotic controls, aerial lift platform leveling and wheel alignment systems.

The inclinometer uses a Fredericks TrueTILT wide-range electrolytic tilt sensor and RS-485 signal conditioner to provide reliable tilt measurement. The device is ideal for measuring position in industrial applications to ensure accurate performance and consistent production.

The inclinometer uses RS-485 communications, which allows up to 32 sensors on a single network to reduce wiring requirements. Additional benefits include low power consumption, small size, long life, and excellent resolution and repeatability. It includes supply voltage of 5VDC, ±10° dual axis range, and operating temperature of -40°C to 70°C.

“The Dual Axis RS-485 Inclinometer provides reliable tilt measurement for a wide range of applications where high precision leveling is critical,” says Heidi McKenna, president of The Fredericks Co.

With an established history of customer support, The Fredericks Co. designs and assembles products at its Pennsylvania facility.
