Next Generation Tilt Sensors
Change now – and easily optimize your machines and processes
Here comes the new generation of tilt sensors N6 static and N7 dynamic – ideal for use in mobile machinery.
Elobau tilt sensors are state of the art, operate with high precision using powerful MEMS technology and offer decisive advantages – for users as well as for vehicle and machine manufacturers.
N6 static and N7 dynamic – developed for even greater safety, reliability, functionality and flexibility. Tilt measurement has never been easier – whether in static or dynamic applications.
Higher functionality, more safety and comfort for the operator
The sensors continuously monitor the angle of inclination of an object relative to gravity and thus reliably provide information for the safe control and movement of the mobile machinery. In this way, they enable important functions such as:
- Regulation of the cockpit level, automatic compensation of slope inclinations
- Position and tilt measurement of moving vehicle/machine parts, such as the boom of an excavator
- Stabilization/tilt protection by monitoring vehicle inclination
Material handling machinery
Easy to choose – the perfect tilt sensor for your application
The N6 static achieves high precision in static systems or with slow machine movement → MEMS technology
The N7 dynamic gives a precise measurement signal on mobile machinery despite shocking movements, bumps and vibrations → MEMS technology + Sensor Fusion (Kalman filter)
MEMS technology: robust and compact – for high precision
N6 static and N7 dynamic use MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) – small components that combine electrical and mechanical components on one chip. Any movement or position deviation is reliably registered and leads to a change in the output signal, which precisely indicates the current angle of inclination.
Sensor Fusion: clear signals even with strong shocks and vibrations
In case of particularly strong accelerations and jerky movements, purely gravity-based sensors reach their limits. For such dynamic applications, we have therefore equipped the N7 dynamic with Sensor Fusion – an extremely responsive combination of accelerometer and gyroscope.
To calculate correct tilt information, the measurements of both components are merged, any errors are corrected and filtered. The Kalman filter used for this is an algorithm that is based on relevant measurement and experience values, which compensates inaccuracies and thus optimizes the measured value stability of the N7 dynamic.
A tilt sensor with Sensor Fusion / Gyroscope significantly reduces the negative effects of jerky movements and ensures the provision of precise measurement data.
As precise as necessary, as cost-efficient as possible
The new tilt sensor generation stands for precision and cost-effectiveness made to measure. Therefore not every application requires the use of the N7 dynamic equipped with Sensor Fusion. For static or slow-moving systems, the more cost-effective N6 static is the perfect solution – and offers reliable tilt measurement at reduced costs.
