Parker UTS

Universal Tilt Sensor For Mobile and Other Applications, CAN-bus SAE J1939 protocol. 2 versions Of The Micro Electro-mechanical Devices Available Calibrated For Tilt Angles of ±10 degrees or ±90 Degrees.

The Parker UTS, Universal Tilt Sensor, is a dual-axis, MEMS technology tilt sensor for mobile hydraulic applications. It communicates over a CAN-bus using SAE J1939 protocol. Using a Deutsch connector, the UTS is suitable for mobile equipment and focuses on reliability, electromagnetic immunity, and ease of installation. They are engineered with MEMs (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems)  devices for reliability and built to withstand rugged applications.

The sensors are designed using MEMs technology and have a high level of EMI immunity for trouble-free operation. They are built in a single corrosion proof package with no moving components and able to withstand rugged applications. The spin weld design combined with the sealed connector give the sensors IP68 protection for outdoor applications.

These features make the UTS a perfect choice for any application where reliable positioning for a stable, level work platform is desired.

Parker controllers provide up to sixteen axes of coordinated motion control for complete electromechanical, hydraulic and pneumatic motion systems. Products include stand-alone multi-axis motion controllers, integrated control and drive packages and integrated motion and machine controllers.
