FRABA (Hamilton, NJ) offers POSITAL Accelens (ACS) inclinometers in two models. The first model features a fiber-reinforced PBT plastic housing and fully encapsulated electronic components. They can withstand prolonged exposure to UV radiation and dust, immersion, or high-pressure water jets. The second model is enclosed in a die-cast aluminum housing for harsh environmental conditions. They can withstand impact loads from tools, rocks, or pieces of unsecured equipment. Reinforced connection points support heavy-duty cables and connectors.

POSITAL Accelens (ACS) inclinometers
The inclinometers are available as single-axis or two-axis models and feature measurement cells that monitor capacitance changes that occur when a small, spring-mounted mass moves in response to changes in position. Maximum resolution is ±0.01°, and each device is temperature-compensated. Available instrument interfaces include analog, serial, CANopen, and DeviceNet.
