Angle sensors and inclinometer

angle sensor

HYDAC provides angle sensors and inclinometers for application with increased functional safety. See below:

HAT 1200 – angle sensor

HAT 1200 is an absolute measuring single turn angle sensor. Thanks to its non-contact magnetic measuring method and its robust design, the HAT 1200 is ideally suited for the measurement of the rotational angle in mobile machines. Due to its two-chamber design, the electronic unit is completely encapsulated which means it meets IP 6K9K if the electrical connection is carried out accordingly.

The sensors meet the safety requirements according to SIL2 (IEC 61508) or PL d (ISO 13849), respectively.

The sensor is therefore suitable for a large variety of applications in the automobile industry and in mobile work machines, especially for applications with increased safety requirements. Especially for the use in public traffic vehicles, HAT 1200 has approval (approved for road vehicles) in accordance with ECE type approval.

HAT 1400 – angle sensor

The sensors meet the safety requirements according to SIL2 (IEC 61508) or PL d (ISO 13849), respectively.

In the CANopen version, the measured signal is digitized and made available to the CAN field bus system via the CANopen protocol. The instrument parameters can be viewed and configured by the user via the CANopen object directory using standard CAN software. The sensor is therefore suitable for a large variety of applications in the automobile industry and in mobile work machines, especially for applications with increased safety requirements. Especially for the use in public traffic vehicles, HAT 1400 has approval (approved for road vehicles) in accordance with ECE type approval.

HAT 3800 – angle sensor

HAT 3836 is a high resolution absolute measuring single turn angle sensor. Thanks to its non-contact magnetic measuring method and its robust design, HAT 3800 is ideally suited for rotational angle measurement in mobile machines as well as in stationary applications.

The sensor version designed for applications with increased functional safety meets the safety requirements according to SIL2 (IEC 61508) or PL d (ISO 13849), respectively.

In the CANopen version, the measured signal is digitized and made available to the CAN field bus system via the CANopen protocol. The instrument parameters can be viewed and configured by the user via the CANopen object directory using standard CAN software. The sensor is therefore ideally suited for mobile machines and stationary applications, especially in applications with increased safety requirements and wherever high-resolution data acquisition is required.

HIT 1500 – inclinometers

In many applications, the measurement of the angle of inclination is required in order to ensure safe machine functions and to control processes.

HIT 1500 was developed in particular for the special use in a dynamic system. In the version for use in applications with enhanced functional safety, the data can be transmitted via the CANopen Safety protocol.

The inclinometers are particularly suited for application in safety circuits according to Functional Safety in Machines and Systems up to SIL 2 (IEC 61508) or PL d depending on the version category 2 or 3 (ISO 13849), respectively. By using both an accelerometer and an additional gyroscope based on MEMS technology (Micro-Electro-Mechanical System), two measured variables which are entirely independent of one another from the physical point of view are detected by the HIT 1500 and combined by the device. A motion compensation is performed hence the contouring error, which occurs in damped or low-pass filtered systems, is avoided.

Thus, the HIT 1500 provides excellent dynamic characteristics and is therefore particularly suited for the active orientation, stabilisation, and control of the inclination of mobile machines such as boom lifts and work platforms, cranes and mobile cranes, construction and drilling systems, agricultural, and municipal machines, etc. Especially for the use in public traffic vehicles, HIT 1500 is approved for road vehicles according to ECE type approval.
