Durham Instruments teams up with many internationally respected manufacturers to bring world-class test and measurement solutions to Canadian businesses. One of these notable producers is Jewell Instruments, which produces the AML series of analog inclinometers. Each of these models is a low-cost MEMS inclinometer that works for numerous industrial applications.
Available as standard units with 0-5-volt, 0.5-4.5-volt, or 4-20mA output options, the AML series has an IP67 rating and is waterproof up to one metre.
High shock and vibration tolerance
These analog inclinometers are versatile devices that work well in such applications as solar tracking and panel positioning, vehicle wheel alignment, industrial automation and control, radar and antenna mast alignment, platform levelling, and navigation pitch/roll measurement. Durham Instruments recommends these units for use in such industries as general manufacturing, aerospace, food processing, forestry, education, the medical field, the military, mining, packaging, power generation, alternative energy, transportation, and research and development.
Custom ranges and output types for these MEMS instruments are also available upon customer request. Single- and dual-axis models are available as well. Other major features of the AML series include high shock and vibration tolerance and a one-metre cable whip included.
