Sherborne Sensors introduces T640 Series Precision Inclinometers
MEMS Solid State Tilt Sensors offer simultaneous filtered and unfiltered outputs.

Sherborne Sensors (www.sherbornesensors.com), a global leader in the design and manufacture of inclinometers, accelerometers, force transducers, load cells, rotary encoders, instrumentation and accessories for industrial, military and aerospace customers, has introduced the T640 series, a range of high-reliability solid state tilt sensors, offering precision measurement accuracy for data acquisition systems, road bed analysis, platform and pipeline leveling, structural monitoring, ship ballast transfer systems, and other applications.

Available in ranges of ±30°, ±60° and ±90°, the Sherborne Sensors T640 series range features an advanced solid-state MEMS sensor, incorporating integral air damping. Unlike fluid-damped devices, air damping is essentially independent of temperature, which enables the tilt sensor to reliably perform over a very wide temperature range (-40° to +100°C), with essentially zero temperature coefficient of damping ratio. Units are compensated for effects of temperature on both sensitivity and zero, and incorporate positive mechanical stops, conferring excellent shock resistance.

The Sherborne Sensors T640 series range is designed to operate from an unregulated DC power source (DC-input, DC-output), and offers a high useable frequency response. A 5Hz low-pass filter is standard, with units offering simultaneous filtered and unfiltered outputs. Signal ground is isolated from power ground. Electrical terminations are either via military-style, Bayonet connector or solder pins, with optional mating connector. In addition, Sherborne Sensors can custom design and manufacture variations of these tilt sensors to conform to specific customer requirements.

The T640 series range is 100% tested and calibrated at the factory prior to shipment, and is accompanied by a two-year comprehensive warranty. Units are also included under the new Sherborne Sensors Guaranteed On-Time Delivery program.
