Overview POSITILT® PTK Gyro-compensated Inclination Sensors

Dynamic. Highly rugged.

Normal inclination sensors deliver incorrect measurement results in a dynmic application. POSITILT® PTK inclination sensors feature gyro-compensated MEMS technology that allows them to compensate for impact, vibrations and acceleration. The sensors are capable of delivering accurate measurements in these challenging conditions.
POSITILT® PTK sensors are available in two different, hermetically sealed, stainless-steel housing units: An ultra-compact unit (PTK29) and a unit with space for redundant electronics (PTK6 / PTK7). Both housing types are hermetically sealed, making them suitable even for challenging environmental conditions.


The Advantages

  • Correct measurement results even in the event of shock, vibrations, and acceleration
  • Measurement range of ±180° (1 axis) to ±60°(2 axes)
  • Static linearity up to 0.05°
  • Hermetically sealed, stainless-steel housing
  • Degree of protection up to IP67/IP69 or IP68



POSITILT® PTK inclination sensors are the ideal solution for applications involving movement, such as those found in mobile machines where movement, impact, and vibrations can impair the sensor accuracy. For applications involving harsh environmental conditions, POSITILT® PTK sensors are available in robust, hermetically sealed, stainless-steel housing units.

The technology

POSITILT® PTK sensors rely on micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) to measure the angle of tilt. They incorporate spring-mass systems that determine the deflection of small test masses and thereby measure the inclination of the system. Outside influences such as shocks, vibrations, and acceleration are significantly reduced through the use of gyro-compensated technology. The interface electronics use this Information to create conventional, industry-standard analog or digital output types.
