Pepperl+Fuchs has decided to expand its offer of inclination sensors with F199 series, optimised for high-precision inclination measurement. It boasts a rugged design, and it offers wide range of application possibilities, particularly in outdoor areas and harsh environments, for instance it can be used in concentrated solar power (CSP) applications to generate energy from solar heat, since it detects the inclination angles of the mirrors. F199 has a temperature range from -45 up to +85 °C.
F199 measures inclination precisely across the entire measuring range of 0° to 360° and along both axes with an accuracy of up to ±0.15°. Thanks to this capability and its extremely robust design, which provides protection to IP 68/69, the F199 can cover a much wider range of applications, particularly in outdoor areas and harsh environments. While the company’s existing inclination sensors are based on a two-part design, with its metal mounting bracket for additional protection, F199 consists of just one part. It has corrosion-resistant aluminium housing, encapsulated electronics and a shock resistance of 100 g.
