Sensor fusion inclinometer for pitch, yaw, and roll feedback

It has been announced by Joral that they are introducing a G-force compensated inclinometer that provides feedback for pitch, yaw, and roll. The new technology utilises sensor fusion, which is the combining of more than one complementary sensing method. 

The new Joral SGAM and DGAM incline sensors take input by a gyroscope, accelerometer, and magnetometer to provide a three axis output for X, Y, and Z as well as new feedback for pitch, yaw, and roll.

The GAM Series sensor provides steady feedback during motion, allowing users to eliminate complex sensor networks with a single G-force compensated inclinometer. Rather than depending on encoders, string pots, laser gates, and proximity sensors to monitor the position of a ladder, fork or platform, users can place one Joral GAM Series sensor on the application to get real time feedback for absolute control.

Joral has designed the same level strength into the GAM series as other standard Joral products. Rated with a standard environmental protection of IP67, the GAM series sensors are 100% encapsulated.

Designed to eliminate the drawback of accelerometer based incline sensors, the SGAM and DGAM inclinometers are J1939 capable, and available in a convenient form factor with common connection options.

  • New G-force compensated three axis incline sensor.
  • Combines sensing technology of a gyroscope, accelerometer, and a magnetometer.
  • J1939 and CAN Open communicating.
  • Not influenced by acceleration or external motion.
  • Pitch, yaw, and roll feedback in addition to X, Y, and Z.
  • Replace complex sensor system with one sensor on CAN network.
  • IP67 environmental protection standard, IP69k capable.
