Angular measurement in harsh environments

The compact GIM500R inclination sensors in robust aluminum housing are ideal for use in harsh environments.
When it comes to tough outdoor use, many sensors reach their limits. Inclination sensors by sensor expert Baumer stand for maximum reliability and durability even in a harsh environment. Thanks to the extremely robust and resilient design, the new GIM500R sensors are ideal for outdoor applications in mobile automation and ensure maximum system uptime.

The GIM500R inclination sensors excel by ultra-high accuracy up to ±0.1˚ for absolute reliability and precise positioning. The E1-compliant and uncompromising design with optimal EMC properties, IP 69K protection and corrosion resistance up to C5-M is particularly addressing demanding outdoor applications. Their shock and vibration resistance up to 200 g respectively 20 g and the wide temperature range from +85 down to -40°C make the inclination sensors particularly durable in temperature fluctuations and any type of soiling. The integrated EN13849-compliant firmware meets the highest requirements on reliability which allows for standard components to be used in functional safety systems up to PLd level. Another hallmark of the new series is optional redundant system design where required.
Inclination sensors of the GIM500R series stand out by their compact aluminum housing, high cost-efficiency and maximum flexibility in system design. They fit in the confined installation space prevailing in mobile automation and heavy vehicles.

Rail, Light Rail, Buses, Trucks & Support Equipment – Weschler Meters

Commercial transportation is a target industry for Weschler products.  Diesel electric locomotives use analog meters and digital meters to monitor generator and motor condition, as well as the status of other on-board systems.  We manufacture special illuminated and ruggedized meters to display vehicle speed in the cab.
Buses and heavy duty trucks benefit from the ruggedness and reliability of Weschler indicators.  Our gauges provide accurate readout of vehicle speed, motor RPM, engine temperature, fuel level, hydraulic pressure and other parameters.  Many models can be interfaced to on-board data loggers and telemetry systems.
Emergency vehicles incorporate a combination of digital and analog meters – in fire engine pumper controls, ambulance monitor panel and other vehicle sub-systems.
Weschler products are used in the construction and maintenance of roadways and rail lines.  Asphalt paving machines track temperatures and feed rates with Weschler digital instrumentation.  Concrete batch plants monitor and control mixing operations with our analog & digital meters.   Meters and transducers are used to monitor motor currents on heavy off-road construction equipment.
