Inductive Position Sensors
Resistance to vibration and mechanical shock

TURCK's Mobile Equipment Sensor Series is ideally equipped to withstand continuous vibration and shock.  The sensors are vibration proof up to 3000 Hz, 20 g, and can withstand continuous shocks of 100 g in 3 axes.

 • EN 60068-2-6 (vibration resistance): 20 g 10-3000 Hz; 50 cycles; 3 axes
 • EN 60068-2-27 (shock resistance): 150 g; 6 ms; 2 g; 3 x each; 3 axes
 • EN 60068-2-29 (continuous shock resistance) 100 g; 11ms, 1/2 sinusoidal; 3 x each; 3 axes

High degree of protection
IP 67 plus IP 68 and IP 69k

 • 24 hrs. continuous storage at 70°C
 • 24 hrs. continuous storage at -25°C
 • 7 days submersion, depth 1 m, 10 temperature changes from 70°C to -25°C, each temperature for 1 hour
 • IP 69k, suitable for high pressure steam-jet cleaning to DIN 40050-9, following EN 60529

Excellent EMC immunity

The mobile equipment sensor series for utility vehicles meets more requirements than stipulated by DIN ISO 7637-2 (conducted and emitted electrical interference - Part 2: Vehicles with 12 V or 24 V systems) and DIN EN ISO 14982 for the severe radiated and line-conducted interference usually present in vehicles.

Plug & play with standard automotive connectors

On request, TURCK can also supply the sensors with short cables and connectors, as commonly used with standard makes in the automotive sector: Deutsch, Packard and Molex are just some examples. This makes connection on the prefabricated cable harness a simple plug & play operation with a proven connection technology.

Extended temperature range

From -40°C to 85°C or from the polar region to the Sahara, the extended temperature range of the sensors allows worldwide use.  Even the radiant heat up to 85°C emitted from motors, gears or exhaust systems cannot damage these sensors.  Extreme temperature changes as defined by DIN 60068-2-14 (temperature change, -40°C to 85°C; 20 cycles) are not a problem.

Load dump protection

Test pulse 5 to DIN ISO 7637-2 / SAE J 1113-11 emulates the disconnection pulse of the battery charging current.  This pulse occurs if a battery is disconnected while the generator is supplying charging current.  This may occur if a battery is disconnected while the motor is running due to corrosion, a poor connection, or intentionally.  In addition, the mobile equipment sensors passed test pulses 1-4 per DIN ISO 7637-2 with 12 V and 24 V systems.

TURCK’s standard product is a low profile dual axis (X and Y) inclinometer with standard angular ranges of ±10°, ±45°, ±60° and ±85°, with additional ranges optional. Each axis has independent outputs.  The 5 VDC version is a ratiometric design and the power is limited to 4.75 to 5.25 VDC. This means that the output is proportional to the supply voltage.  The 10-30 VDC supply units are regulated and the output is fixed regardless.

Zero Setpoint Teach Function

TURCK Mobile Equipment Sensor Solutions

The zero point, or level reference, of the inclinometer may be reset to the unique grade of your application.  Depending on the model, it is adjustable up to +/- 15 degrees from the factory setting of absolute horizon level.  This allows you to effectively shift the sensing window to accommodate slightly non-level rest positions of your equipment, such as the difference between an empty and a loaded dump truck.  We offer a teaching pendant to make this a simple, single push-button task.
