Sensor box containing one highly sensitive servo inclinometer and one signal conditioner with 5V output



The SBS1U is a pressure die cast aluminium sensor housing (IP65) with an integrated sensor for highly sensitive, uniaxial acceleration or inclination measurements.
As well as the sensor, the housing contains a signal conditioner with 0...5V output and a separate, highly stable voltage supply. Furthermore, the signal conditioner includes active low pass filters for suppression of interference signals and transient suppression for EMC guarantee. Interference signals caused by unwanted ground currents are eliminated by electrically isolating sensor and signal conditioner from the housing. The terminals provide either two mutually inverse asymmetric 0...5V or one symmetrical 5V output voltages.
The compact metal cable gland and small housing size in combination with the max.6-wire connection enable the use of this high quality measuring system in harsh operating conditions.


The SBS1U is suitable for applications requiring extremely precise inclination or acceleration measurements under harsh circumstances and returning of an analog signal output. Typical areas of successful application include stability monitoring of buildings and machinery and inclination monitoring on bridges, dams, towers, tunnels, slopes and structures in danger of collapse or earthquakes.
