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. It has a non-contact magnetic measuring method and a robust design. Therefore, the HAT 1200 is ideal for the measurement of the rotational angle in mobile machines. What’s more, due to its two-chamber design, the electronic unit is completely encapsulated. It means it meets IP 6K9K if the electrical connection is carried out accordingly.

Moreover, 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. This is especially true for applications with increased safety requirements. Also, HAT 1200 has approval (approved for road vehicles) in accordance with ECE type approval, which is convenient for the use in public traffic vehicles.

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, there is digitalisation of the measured signal. It is, therefore, available to the CAN field bus system via the CANopen protocol. What’s more, it is possible to see the instrument parameters and to configure them 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. This is especially true for applications with increased safety requirements. Also, HAT 1400 has approval (approved for road vehicles) in accordance with ECE type approval, which is convenient for the use in public traffic vehicles.

HAT 3800 – angle sensor

HAT 3836 is a high resolution absolute measuring single turn angle sensor. It has a non-contact magnetic measuring method and a robust design. Therefore, the HAT 3800 is ideal for rotational angle measurement in mobile machines as well as in stationary applications.

Furthermore, the sensor version’s design with increased functional safety meets the safety requirements according to SIL2 (IEC 61508) or PL d (ISO 13849), respectively.

In the CANopen version, there is digitalisation of the measured signal and is, therefore, available to the CAN field bus system via the CANopen protocol. What’s more, it is possible to see the instrument parameters and to configure them via the CANopen object directory using standard CAN software. The sensor is therefore suitable for mobile machines and stationary application. This is especially true for applications with increased safety requirements and wherever there are requirements for high-resolution data acquisition.

HIT 1500 – inclinometers

In many applications, there is a requirement for the measurement of the angle of inclination. This ensures a safe machine functions and to control processes.

The development of the HIT 1500 answers for the special use in a dynamic system. In the version for use in applications with enhanced functional safety, it is possible to transmit the data via the CANopen Safety protocol.

Furthermore, the inclinometers are ideals for application in safety circuits. This is 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. It is possible to detect two measured variables which are entirely independent of one another from the physical point of view with the HIT 1500. The device is also able to combine them. This happens if we use both an accelerometer and an additional gyroscope,  based on MEMS technology (Micro-Electro-Mechanical System). 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. It is, therefore, the answer for the active orientation, stabilisation, and control of the inclination of mobile machines. E.g boom lifts and work platforms, cranes and mobile cranes, construction and drilling systems, agricultural, and municipal machines, etc…

Also, HIT 1500 has approval for road vehicles in accordance with ECE type approval, which is convenient for the use in public traffic vehicles.
