Angle sensors measure the angle between two objects. The angle measurement can be either absolute or incremental: absolute sensors provide the angle reading straight away after switching the sensor on whereas incremental sensors require for you to visit the home station first and start the measuring again from there.
Inclination sensors can be divided into different categories depending on the measuring technique and on whether the coupling is mechanical through an axis or contactless. Measuring techniques include for example the traditional potentiometer, inductive, optic, and magnetic contactless.
Output signal is analog 0,5-4,5 / 0-10 VDC or 4 – 20 mA, or digital CANopen.
