October 1, 2007 — U.S. Digital, a Vancouver, Wash., company that makes MEMS-based motion control components, has released a new dual-axis absolute inclinometer.
The company said its X3Q uses solid state MEMS technology to sense tilt angles over the entire 360-degree range. The device is flexible with three different mounting orientations in any resolution between 1 to 9,000 CPR, and it offers a selectable damping value to suit users’ needs.
The X3Q incorporates a number of patent pending breakthroughs to create a new type of inclinometer that is rugged, compact, solid state, fast, flexible and easy to use, the company said. Applications can include construction and mining equipment, warehouse automation, and solar farms.
