RDI Series Digital Inclinometers
The RDI series digital inclinometers provide single or dual axis inclination sensing in a rugged environmentally protected housing. The inclinometers in the RDI series are made to deliver precise measurements for a range of applications, including monitoring structures, calculating the tilt of machines and equipment, and more. This is a semi-custom unit where all sub-assemblies are stock but specific functions are customized. A modular design allows the customer to select the measurement range, output type, and temperature compensation that best suits the individual application. This digital inclinometer includes green, yellow, and red LEDs as standard features, giving the operator a clear visual alarm signal for identifying safe and harmful conditions and also significantly increasing a driver’s capacity to recognize potentially dangerous rollover scenarios before they cause injury or equipment damage.
Input Ranges Of RDI Series Digital Inclinometer
Standard input ranges ±10°, ±30° and ±70° are available for both single and dual axis models – these can be scaled to specific ranges (ie: ±45º) per axis. Special single axis ranges up to ±90° are available. Non-symmetrical (or scalable) ranges (ie: -10° to +90°) are available for applications that only tilt in one direction.
Output Configurations Of RDI Series Digital Inclinometer
The RDI series digital inclinometers can be supplied with multiple output configurations to provide flexibility and compatibility with different control systems. Some of the most common output configurations include Digital LCD Display, Analog Voltage Output, Analog Current Output, Digital Serial RS232 output, Digital RS485 Output, and up to four (4) Open Collector Switch Outputs providing maximum functionality. Depending on the model and configuration of the RDI Series Digital Inclinometer, there may be different options for output configuration.
The inclinometers are designed to be durable and suitable for use in harsh environments. They have an IP67 rating, meaning they are waterproof to a depth of one meter and dust-tight.
The LCD displays angle in degrees “º”, or optional percent grade “%”, or inch per foot rise with either 0.1 or 0.01 degree resolution. The display models come standard with 3 built in LED’s (1 green, 1 yellow, and 1 red). These can be activated to trip at predefined angles within the specified measurement range – providing the operator a bright visual warning signal – field adjustable trip angle settings optional. Most all RDI packages are powered by external 8-30VDC non-regulated input supply (default), with optional 9V battery, 110VAC or 240VAC wall or cigarette lighter adaptor. Interface cables available for remote packages, special connectors available based on request.
