Industrial inclinometer for harsh applications
BEI Sensors' T-Series industrial inclinometer is a compact sensor for measurement that uses MEMS technology and motion feedback and incorporates built-in linearity and temperature compensation for offset and sensitivity.
BEI Sensors' T-Series industrial inclinometer is a compact sensor for measurement of slope or tilt angles of an object with respect to gravity. The T-Series uses microelectromechnical systems (MEMS) technology and motion feedback including dual axis up to ±60 deg or single axis of 360 deg, with resolution of 0.01 deg and accuracy of 0.1 deg. The T-Series incorporates built-in linearity and temperature compensation for offset and sensitivity.
This tilt sensor provides outstanding mechanical stability with a completely encapsulated sensor and a glass fiber reinforced plastic or an AW6082-T6 aluminum alloy housing. The plastic housing is manufactured with automotive grade UV resistant material with UL 94 V-0 classification for safety of flammability. Available output options include 4-20 mA or 0.5 V - 4.5 V for a simple analog interface, or a CANopen output for ease of integration into existing bus systems. Its compact design and simplicity make it extremely robust in high shock and vibration environments.
Designed for harsh outdoor applications, the T-Series inclinometers are sealed up to IP68. When properly mounted, with a sealed mating connector they can even withstand IP69K washdown environments. The T-Series is ideal for tilt measurement applications on industrial equipment such as mobile cranes, forklifts, drilling towers, construction and agricultural machinery.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
