New Inclinometer and Gyroscope Sensor from STW Ahead of OTC 2014
STW Technic, a premier manufacturer of mobile controllers and measurement technology, today announced the launch of its updated 3 axes inclinometer and gyroscope sensor NGS2 in the US.
STW designed the NGS2 gyroscope sensor especially for mobile work machines and off-highway vehicles. It has a robust housing that makes it suitable for the harsh conditions associated with off-highway applications. The NGS2 can also be utilized as an inclination sensor, as both sensor types can be integrated into a single device. More information is available on the STW website at http://www.stw-
As a gyroscope sensor the 3dB bandwidth is 40Hz. In the standard unit, the measuring range is set to 50 °/s. The achievable resolution is 0.25 °/s. In addition to the gyro sensor, an optional accelerometer can be included. The inclination can be determined from the accelerometer, and the acceleration values can also be read. The output data are available over a CANopen interface. Optionally, analogue outputs can be added to provide one output signal per axis.
The sensor has a diagnostics function and the offset can be re-calibrated via the CAN Bus. The power supply is suitable for 9…36VDC and so covers 12V and 24V vehicles. Maximum operating temperature is between range is -40…+85 °C.
STW will be showcasing the NGS2 sensor at the Offshore Technology Conference, May 5 – 8 in Houston, TX at booth 11119. For more information on STW’s presence at OTC visit: http://www.stw-
