Sherborne Sensors launches Gravity-Referenced Dual Axis Inclinometers

T820 Series is designed for challenging inclinometer applications in space restricted areas

Sherborne Sensors, a global leader in the design and manufacture of sensors for industrial, military and aerospace applications, announces the T820 series, a new range of high precision, gravity referenced dual axis inclinometers for measurements in space constrained environments such as borehole or well logging and seismic studies. Available for ranges from ±14.5° to ±60°, the cylindrical inclinometers measure just 23mm in diameter and 161mm in length and are Sherborne’s smallest diameter inclinometers.

The T820 Series includes the T823 with an environmentally sealed connector and cable system or theT825 with solder pin terminations. They can operate from a bi-polar input voltage range of ±12 to ±18Vdc or single ended voltage range of 9 to 18Vdc. A high level output of ±5Vdc is achieved for the bi-polar supplied unit and 0.5 to 4.5Vdc for the single ended version.

The T820 Series are made from stainless steel to prevent corrosion and to reduce angular errors that can be caused by the mechanical flexibility found in alternative aluminium alloy constructed sensors. They also have an innovative precision angular alignment capability for increased installed resolution. The inclinometers continue to deliver precision accuracy in temperatures ranging from -18 to 70 degrees Celsius and will survive temperatures down to minus 40 degrees Celsius.

“Borehole logging for the drilling of oil, gas, water or minerals or as part of environmental or geotechnical studies requires high levels of precision and accuracy,” explains Mike Baker, managing director of Sherborne Sensors. “The T820 series has been designed to operate in the smallest of areas and can withstand high levels of mechanical shock without any degradation in performance.”

Sherborne Sensors can customise all of its inclinometers designs and manufacture to conform to specific customer requirements. All Sherborne Sensors products are thoroughly tested and calibrated to international standards at the factory prior to shipment, and are accompanied by an industry exclusive two-year comprehensive warranty and the Guaranteed On-Time Delivery programme.
