New CANopen Inclinometers – Available Now


The NEXTGEN CANopen inclinometers are available now in our product finder! POSITAL has updated its family of TILTIX inclinometers with new three-axis MEMS accelerometers, enhanced firmware, and a new housing concept. These changes enable POSITAL to streamline manufacturing processes and reduce delivery times while maintaining full environmental protection. The new versions are compatible with older models, with identical mounting footprints while offering improved accuracy and better signal-to-noise ratios. Common applications include positioning of solar panels, rollover warning systems for mobile machinery, control systems for crane booms, and tilt control in service robots, AGV’s and other materials-handling systems.

  • Enhanced Programming Function (Number of Axes, Filtering Methods)
  • Reduced Cross-Axis Sensitivity
  • Improved Measurement Accuracy to ± 0.1 Degrees
  • Available in Fiber-Reinforced Plastic Housings or IP69K-rated Metal Enclosures

Extend the Lifetime of Your Draw-Wire with These Tips!


POSITAL’s latest white paper explains the service life of your draw-wire sensor and some influential factors. A draw-wire is comprised of a measuring wire, spring, and sensor element. Movements within these elements are subject to wear and therefore affect service life. To ensure the best possible service life, the spring must be used within the suggested working range. The sensor element must also be checked in analysis to assure proper usage. Both the sensor and spring are subject to environmental conditions. More severe environmental factors, such as humidity, chemicals, and elevated temperatures, can all reduce the life cycle of your draw-wire.

  • Service Life Influenced by Wear on Spring and Sensor
  • Proper Usage Range of the Systems Extends the Service Life
  • Installation and Suitable Protection Can Enhance the Service Life
  • Environmental Factors, if Not Properly Assessed, Reduces the Service Life
