What is an Inclinometer?

An inclinometer is an instrument for measuring the angles of slope and inclination of an object with respect to its gravity by creating an artificial horizon. It is also known as a tilt sensor, tilt indicator, slope meter, slope gauge, gradient meter, gradiometer, level gauge & level meter. As a distinguished inclinometer manufacturer, we have consistently prioritized safety in our products and continue to lead in innovation.

Rieker’s High Precision Inclinometers Application

Our high-accuracy inclinometer is commonly used in different industries like Aviation, civil engineering, Government, Marine, Military, platform leveling, boom angle indication, and slope angle measurement. The tilt angle range is the range of desired linear output measured in degrees. Important specifications to consider when searching for tilt sensors, clinometers, and inclinometers are the tilt angle range and number of axes.

FAQs About Rieker’s Inclinometers

Here are some frequently asked questions about digital inclinometers

What is a Digital Inclinometer, and How does it work?

A digital inclinometer, also known as a tilt sensor or clinometer, is a high-precision instrument for measuring angles or tilts. It generally detects changes in orientation via accelerometers or gyroscopes and delivers digital readouts of angles in degrees or other units.

Are there Wireless or Remote Monitoring Options for Inclinometers?

Wireless or Bluetooth connectivity is frequently available on newer digital inclinometers. This enables real-time data transfer to external devices, making remote monitoring of angles and tilts easier.

Can Digital Inclinometers be used in Harsh Environments?

Yes, many digital inclinometers are built to endure rough handling. They frequently have tough housings and are sealed to keep dust and moisture out, making them suited for outdoor and industrial applications.

Can Digital Inclinometers be Customized for Specific Projects?

Yes, Rieker provides customization options to modify digital inclinometers to individual project requirements. Whether you want specific measurement ranges or specialized mounting choices, customization is frequently available.

Are there Maintenance Requirements for Inclinometers?

In general, Rieker  inclinometers do not require maintenance.

What Is The Advantage Of Choosing Digital Over Traditional Analog Inclinometers?

Digital inclinometers offer precise and easy-to-read digital readouts, making them more suitable for a wide range of applications. They frequently include extra features like data logging, remote monitoring, and interoperability with contemporary data analysis tools.
