The new EP1816-3008 EtherCAT Box from Beckhoff Automation (Savage, MN) is a feature-packed I/O solution with built-in tilt monitoring in longitudinal and transverse directions. The easy-to-install I/O module for harsh environments can be used to implement cost-effective acceleration and angle measurement directly in the field, outside of protective electrical cabinets. This compact, IP 67-rated measuring device features:

  • Two integrated 3-axis acceleration sensors and 16 digital inputs.
  • Resolution options of ±2 g, ±4 g, ±8 g and ±16 g.
  • Sampling frequency of 1 Hz to 5 kHz.
  • Forked silicon structures, which have movements or vibrations that result in a capacitive change and a corresponding signal value.
