Additional Information – HMDS8000 1-0-0
A full colour dual-axis inclinometer giving operators of machinery an accurate pitch and roll read out.
Ideally suited for mining and civil engineering equipment.
The Elite Inclinometer measures pitch and roll using a remote incline sensor. The use of a remote sensor allows the display to be positioned at an optional angle for operator visibility whilst allowing for accurate angle measurement.
Warning and alarm levels are user configurable through the password protected menu. When a warning level is exceeded, the critical reading will be highlighted yellow and an optional internal audible alarm will begin to beep. When an alarm level is exceeded, the critical reading will be highlighted red and the alarm will sound continuously. Two positive drive outputs are provided that can be set to activate or deactivate on warning and alarm.
The sensor can be calibrated to remove errors due to small offsets in mounting and can be damped to optimise accuracy in high vibration environments. An optional RF sensor is available on request.
The unit is multi voltage and can work in 12V and 24V vehicles.
Installation is simple with the only external wiring required being power and ground. The external sensor plugs into the loom provided. The sensor wiring can be extended if required.
The inclinometer display is supplied with a RAM mounting system which allows the display to be orientated optimally for the operator. Optional windscreen mounting kits are available on request.
The sensor should be ideally be mounted horizontally with the mounting tabs down and the wires exiting to the rear of the vehicle. For best results, mount the sensor as close to the centre of the vehicle as possible

The Dual Axis Inclinometer – Elite also features additional graphical displays, and the ability to log pitch, roll, GPS location, speed and time to internal memory.
The Elite can also monitor two independent sensors, for example a tuck’s prime mover and its trailer.
Additional Display Modes
In addition to basic degree and percentage display modes, the Elite can also display pitch and roll in terms of vehicle pictograms for an intuitive view of the vehicle’s angle.
The Elite also features a target display mode – commonly used in crane or digger applications.
Event Recording and Dual Independent Sensor Monitoring Capabilities
The Dual Axis Inclinometer – Elite also features advanced event logging capabilities. The Elite can store time, date, GPS location and speed to its internal memory when a Warning or Alarm event occurs.
An additional incline sensor may also be monitored simultaneously – providing independent pitch and roll information for a second vehicle. This may be useful to monitor both a vehicle and its towed trailer or load, for example a prime mover and its trailer.
