A lot of engineering and surveying tasks demand the accurate measurement of the angle of a slope to achieve an acceptable, final product or result. Such measurements can only be made with a high-precision inclinometer.
An inclinometer measures the angle or inclination of a surface relative to gravity or the horizontal. For example, you might need a tilt reference when you want to level a crane to ensure that the difference between gravity and the base of the crane is zero.
When you need to measure these kinds of angles accurately, the best way to do so is with a high-precision inclinometer from Singer Instruments & Control. Our inclinometers are intended for use in situations where the measurement is static.
The Need for Accuracy
As with most work, the final result can only be as accurate as the least accurate measurement used during the process. For this reason, it is often imperative that you use only a high-precision inclinometer like those we produce at Singer Instruments. We have extensive experience in manufacturing highly accurate instruments that ensures that your measurements can always be relied upon.
Factors Affecting Accuracy
Among other factors, the accuracy of an inclinometer also depends on the resolution of the instrument. If your inclinometer is limited to 0.1°, then no matter how accurate your other measurements are, your final result has an accuracy that’s limited to a tenth of a degree. Our inclinometers provide an accuracy of 0.05° or better.
For example, our TSD-232 dual-axis, servo-inclinometer provides a resolution of up to 0.0001° in the ±5° and ±10° range.
High-precision inclinometer accuracy can be affected by many factors, such as:
- Sensor zero offset and sensitivity
- temperature drift
If your application is sensitive to these kinds of factors, our FTSU auto-zero, servo-tilt-inclinometer uses our patented internal mechanism to practically eliminate the effects of temperature changes, shock, vibration, and time drift.
