The NG2U, NG3U and NG4U are capacitive, liquid based inclinometers with integrated sensor electronics and signal conditioner. Electronic temperature compensation makes up for the temperature drift of the sensitivity of the primary transformer. An integrated, highly stable voltage regulator ensures stable operation for a range of supply voltages. The measurement technique provides a linear relationship between the angle to be measured (up to (80 degrees for the NG4U) and the output signal that is calibrated during manufacture. The measuring time constant can be matched to the requirements of the measurement task by appropriate hardware programming.


The inclinometers NG2U, NG3U and NG4U are suited for applications requiring high measurement accuracy with low linearity deviation, low temperature sensitivity and high long-term stability for measurement of large inclination angles, returning a large output signal while using a non-regulated supply voltage. For particularly harsh operating conditions, we recommend the sensor casing SB1U or the casing SB1S featuring additional switch outputs. These inclinometers have their application in areas such as construction, mining, vehicles, aircraft, ships, surveying equipment, transportation and conveyor systems and process automation as well as safety engineering.
