Rethink the inclinometer

Quick Description

The New Multi-Output Precision Inclinometer (MPI) provides high-accuracy with a sunlight readable touch screen & adjustable output parameters. The MPI measures in single or dual axis sensing mode, encased in a rugged machined Aluminum housing – the anodized finish protects the surface from wear. The design is well suited for hand-held use; each side is a machined flat reference surface.

Multiple Inputs
  • Long Lasting Rechargeable Lithium Ion Battery
  • 8-30VDC Non-Regulated External Input Power
  • User selectable single or dual axis, horizontal or vertical measurements
Multiple Configurable Outputs
  • Graphic Touch Screen sunlight-readable display
  • Digital RS232 & RS485
  • Analog Voltage
  • Four Relay Switches
Multiple Output Measuring Units

The display shows angle in:

  • Degrees
  • Percent Grade
  • Inch Per Foot Rise
Trip Angle Indicator Lights

Trip angle indicator lights can be activated to trip at predefined angles within the specified measuring range providing the operator a bright visual alert of changed condition. These can be coordinated with the built in relay outputs – each with field adjustable trip angle settings.

user friendly

Touch Screen

The touchscreen gives the operator a visual output of the sensors readings and allows for full configuration of axis selection, outputs, Min/Max angle ranges, mounting orientation, green/yellow/red trip angle indicator lights, resolution, refresh rate, trip angle settings and more.

MPI: Multi-Output Precision Touch Screen Inclinometer

$2,100.00

Our MPI unit is a touch screen inclinometer offering a multi-output precision sensing solution. The MPI offers multiple configurable outputs: Graphic Touch-Screen Sunlight-readable Display, Digital RS232 & RS485, Analog Voltage, and four (4) Relay Switches providing maximum functionality.

The display shows angle in degrees (º), percent grade (%), or inch per foot rise (“) with either 1, 0.1 or 0.01 degree resolution. The display provides graphical axis level indicators in green, yellow, and red, which can be activated to trip at predefined angles within the specified measuring range – providing the operator a bright visual alert of changed condition. These can be coordinated with the built in Relay outputs – each with field adjustable trip angle settings.

The MPI also has a Bulls-Eye Bubble Level mode for precise leveling applications.Powered by a long-lasting rechargeable battery or external 8..30VDC non-regulated input supply the MPI is made for mobile hand-held use, temporary magnetic placement (mounting plates included) or permanent installation.
