  • Can also be used in the harshest ambient conditions thanks to fully encapsulated electronics


Precise inclination measurement in a compact design

The TMS61 one-dimensional inclination sensor and the TMM61 two-dimensional inclination sensor are setting new standards with respect to size, flexibility, and performance. In their small, rugged plastic housings, the sensors offer excellent resolution and accuracy – what's more, this is achieved over the entire measuring range and in an extremely wide range of ambient conditions. The CANopen interface enables a whole host of device parameters to be adapted, allowing the sensor to be perfectly tailored to the application. The new PGT-12-Pro handheld programming tool from SICK makes configuration much easier. As a result, the user is ready to go in just a few clicks and can cut out the time-consuming task of configuring the sensor via the control system.

At a glance
  • Compact inclination sensor with measuring range of 360° (single-axis) or ±90° (dual-axis)
  • Compensated cross sensitivity and configurable vibration suppression
  • Convenient CANopen interface
  • UV-resistant, impact-proof plastic housing
  • High resolution (0.01°) and accuracy (±0.1° typ.)
  • Programmable with the PGT-12-Pro
