The Jewell Instruments LCF-100 Series inclinometer a precision, inertial-grade sensing instrument with input ranges from ±1° to ±90°. Offering good performance, rugged reliability, and high accuracy, the LCF-100 is designed for applications where high levels of shock and vibration are present. The LCF-100 is fluid damped and is characterized by excellent turn on repeatability and very low hysteresis.
LCF-100 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 LCF-100 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 LCF-100 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 LCF-100 Series Inclinometer:
- Geophysical Testing
- Railcar Acceleration Control
- Platform Orientation
