Whether they are leveling cranes, monitoring front-loader tilt, or controlling elevators – the fields of application for inclination and acceleration sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs are many. They ensure precise measurements, also in harsh outdoor conditions. An innovative, two-piece mounting concept makes the F99 series extremely robust: a rugged metal mounting bracket provides the sensor module with impact protection, and the concept allows the quick and easy exchange of the sensor module, if needed. Since the bracket can stay in place, there is no need for new adjustment or calibration.
Depending on the individual requirements, you can choose different models from our inclination and acceleration sensor portfolio.
F99 series inclination sensors reliably detect inclination angles in factory automation and mobile equipment applications. For leveling mobile work platforms, for instance, they are an ideal solution. The sensor continuously monitors the platform’s incline and indicates when re-adjustment is necessary.
Acceleration sensors reliably monitor acceleration of parts in plants or machinery. Due to the two-piece mounting concept, F99 series acceleration sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs are extremely robust and also suited for harsh outdoor conditions. Thus, they are typically used in wind turbine installations and large machinery, where they monitor set vibration limits, in elevators, or in large plants.. Measuring range and outputs can be configured individually according to the specific application requirements.
For reliable acceleration monitoring in dynamic applications, the F99-Fusion is an ideal solution. The inertial measurement unit allows a customized parameterization of measuring ranges and outputs, so users are provided with the data they want to monitor. In addition, the F99-Fusion can fade out certain accelerations, in order to only monitor vibration.
- Customized parameterization of measuring range and outputs
- Innovative mounting concept consisting of a rugged metal mounting bracket and a sensor module
- Robust housing suitable for outdoor use
- Protection class IP68/69
- E1 and GL approval for off-road and marine applications
- F99-Fusion for acceleration monitoring in dynamic applications
The F99 series acceleration sensors monitor strong vibrations or accelerations in installations. So they are an ideal solution for monitoring a wind turbine installation, for instance. When a set mechanical vibration limit is exceeded, the turbine monitoring system can take action, and damages can be avoided.
- Inertial Measurement Units
The F99-Fusion Inertial Measurement Unit has been specially developed for inclination and acceleration detection in dynamic applications. It provides a 360° measurement on six axes and, due to an intelligent Sensor Fusion Algorithm, it is able to compensate for external acceleration, opening up new possibilities.
