The F199 is optimized for high-accuracy inclination measurement.

The F199 from Pepperl+Fuchs is optimized for high-accuracy inclination measurement. Like other inclination sensors, the F199 provides measurement feedback of the angle tilt of machines or machine elements relative to gravitational force.

The F199 precisely measures angles from 0 to 360° with less than 0.01° resolution and absolute accuracy of ±0.15° across the entire measuring range.

With this and a rugged design, the F199 offers a wide range of application possibilities, especially in outdoor areas and harsh environments.

The current F99 inclination sensors are based on a two-piece mounting concept, which makes them sturdy. A metal mounting bracket provides the sensor module with impact protection. The one-part F199 inclination sensor supplements this existing portfolio. A corrosion-resistant aluminum housing, encapsulated electronics, and 100 g shock resistance make it rugged. The F199 is suited for harsh conditions with its IP68/69K rating.

With the F199, equipment can be used safely on rough terrain. The F199 is available as a one- or two-axis sensor, and available outputs include CANopen, MODBUS, and analog.
