Pepperl+Fuchs announces F199 high-precision inclination sensor
May 22, 2019 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
May 22, 2019 – Pepperl+Fuchs has debuted the F199 sensor for high-accuracy inclination measurement.
Like other inclination sensors, the F199 provides measurement feedback of the angle tilt of machines or machine elements relative to gravitational force.
The F199 precisely measures angles from 0 to 360 degrees with less than 0.01-degree resolution and absolute accuracy of ±0.15 degrees across the entire measuring range. With this and a rugged design, the F199 offers a wide range of application possibilities, especially in outdoor areas and harsh environments.
The current F99 inclination sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs are based on a two-piece mounting concept, and a metal mounting bracket provides the sensor module with impact protection. A corrosion-resistant aluminum housing, encapsulated electronics, and 100 g shock resistance make it suited for harsh conditions with its IP68/69K rating.
Potential uses include material handling, mobile equipment and renewable energy. The F199 is available as a one- or two-axis sensor, and available outputs include CANopen, MODBUS and analog.
