The Jewell Instruments LSRP Series inclinometer is a precision, inertial-grade sensing instrument with input ranges from ±1.0° to ±90°. Featuring a compact, cylindrical shape, the LSRP series is designed to be stacked, facilitating the use of several inclinometers for applications requiring multi-axis measurement. The LSR offers precise readings with high outputs at lower range frequencies
LSR series inclinometers are solid-state, closed loop meters with accuracy, stability and reliability several orders of magnitude greater than open loop types. They are ideally suited for use in the construction industry for setting tilt of road grading and paving machines, in the geophysics filed for tilt and strong motion studies, in the civil engineering field for evaluation of tilt of supporting walls in dams and other structures, and other application where high-accuracy measurement of tilt is required.
Jewell LSR series inclinometers are fully self-contained and designed to operate from a standard DC power source. Output is an analog 0 to ±5 VDC signal directly proportional to the sine of the angle of tilt. The heart of the LSR series is a flexure supported torque balance system, rugged enough to withstand severe shock and vibration and still maintain excellent accuracy. The solid state electronics and sensor are enclosed within the sealed housing, permitting operation in hostile environments.
Applications for the Jewell Instruments LSRP Series Inclinometer:
- Heavy construction, grading
- Ship & barge leveling
- Deviation surveys
- Continuous casting
- Weapons platform leveling
Here's how some of our customers used this product.
Leveling Dies in a Steel Mill
The Background: The customer, a steel mill, needs to ensure that the dies it uses in the forming process are level.
The Problem: The high temperature requirements of this application were outside of the range of previous inclinometer/tilt sensor technology.
The Solution: The LSRP operates very well in the high temperature ranges required by the steel industry due to its ability to shift the temperature compensated range toward the high end (70˚C/160˚F).
