Dual Axis Inclinometer HMDS1000B


Hummingbird’s HMDS1000B Dual-Axis Inclinometer (Slope Meter) provides highly visible and configurable pitch and roll measurement and display to operators of industrial machinery.

The Inclinometer (Slope Meter) allows customisation of sensor response times to allow maximum flexibility in various applications.

Alarms and warnings can be configured from the integrated menu and saved to integrated memory.

Designed for harsh industrial environments, the Inclinometer (Slope Meter) features a tough fascia with integrated buttons and LCD graphics display.

An industrial adjustable mount allows for optimum positioning for the operator.

Both pitch and roll can simultaneously be displayed and can optionally be made to invert in the event of an alarm or warning condition. The display is highly visible both at night and in sunlight due to the use of an industrially rated transflective graphics LCD display.

The integrated keypad allows for customisation of the display; in application calibration; warning and alarm setup; minimum and maximum tilt display and sensor customisation.

One HMTS2F0000B 2-axis high-accuracy RS485 tilt sensor is included, with a 15m cable length. When used in combination with the Inclinometer (Slope Meter), accuracy of one degree and customisable frequency response are achievable.

Integrated alarm and warning relays provide normally open, normally closed and common outputs. Both warnings and alarms can be configured to be normally-on or normally-off.

Optional password protection on the setup menu can be configured by the user.

The Inclinometer (Slope Meter) is supplied in a rugged ABS plastic enclosure with a polycarbonate fascia.

A fully adjustable RAM 1″ ball mount can be screw mounted to the vehicle, or optional suction mounts are available.

Power, outputs and the sensor are connected through a Deutsch DT12 socket at the rear of the unit. The wiring loom is made from flame-retardant Exane© wire.
