Sherborne Sensors launches rugged LSW inclinometers for demanding all-weather applications.

Sherborne Sensors, a world leading company in the design and manufacture of superior precision inclinometers, force transducers, accelerometers, today launched its LSW range of fully self-contained gravity-referenced weather proof servo inclinometers.

The new LSW range of inclinometers are high precision closed loop gravity referenced tilt sensors designed for all-weather applications in the most demanding of environments. Being constructed from stainless steel, the sensors are highly corrosion resistant and weatherproofed to IP67 standards (with an IP68 field replaceable cable) and so are proof against the most demanding of world-wide weather conditions. They can also survive 1500g shock and temperatures from -40°C to 70°C.

Fully self-contained, the sensor simply connects to a DC power source and a readout or control device for a complete operating system. The high-level DC output signal is proportional to the sine of the angle of tilt and sensors are available in ranges from ±3° to ±90°.

The LSW inclinometers are ideally suited to tough on-shore and off-shore civil engineering applications such as bore-hole mapping, dam and rock shifts and other geophysical and seismic studies as well as various military applications.

Mike Baker, Managing Director of Sherborne Sensors explained: "Our new LSW range meets the demands of our customers for a range of gravity referenced inclinometers that can be used in extremely harsh and demanding conditions around the world. They are straightforward to setup and connect to a control device or readout, so engineers can have a complete system up and running in a matter of minutes."
