Tilt sensor N5

Tilt sensor N5

  • Long service life and reliability thanks to the mechanics-free MEMS technology
  • Inclination range single axis 360°, or double axis 180
  • Up to 4 additional, freely configurable switching points
  • Switch-on/switch-off delay per switching point selectable
  • Adjustment of the zero position via CAN bus, or IR remote control
  • Protection class IP67
  • Temperature resistant from -40 °C to +85 °C
  • Deutsch or M12 plug
  • Daisy chain – looping through the CAN signal without additional T-distributors
  • Compact, flat and outdoor-suitable housing
  • Stack mounting for redundancy

The N5 tilt sensor with CAN-Bus interface is available as a CANopen or SAEJ1939 variant. It has a high impact and vibration resistance so is frequently used for tilt measurement in construction machinery, industrial trucks and adverse industrial environments. The N5 can be easily programmed and the neutral position adjusted with the corresponding infrared remote control.
