Pepperl+Fuchs Announces F199 Inclination Measurement Sensor

The F199 from Pepperl+Fuchs is designed for inclination measurement. The F199 provides measurement feedback of the angle tilt of machines or machine elements relative to gravitational force.

The F199 measures angles from 0 to 360° with less than 0.01° resolution and absolute accuracy of ±0.15° across the entire measuring range. This addition complements the current portfolio of inclination sensors, which includes the F99 series.

The current F99 inclination sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs are based on a two-piece mounting concept, which makes them sturdy. A metal mounting bracket provides the sensor module with impact protection. The  one-part F199 inclination sensor supplements this existing portfolio. A corrosion-resistant aluminum housing, encapsulated electronics, and 100 g shock resistance are intended to make it rugged. The F199 is suited for harsh conditions with its IP68/69K rating.

The F199’s inclination measurement offers numerous application possibilities. Potential uses include material handling, mobile equipment, and renewable energy. The F199 also makes tasks easier in application areas like agriculture, excavation, forestry, and firefighting because it provides accurate angles for the base and boom. With the F199, equipment can be used safely on rough terrain. The F199 is available as a one- or two-axis sensor, and available outputs include CANopen, MODBUS, and analog.
