Leveling and angular measurements are vital functions for precision equipment installation, machine setup alignments and metrology in many industries within the precision engineering cluster. Imprecise leveling a machine affects its structural stability thus severely reduces the accuracy, functional and quality performances of a machine/equipment. In fact, precision levelling, angle measurement and alignment tasks essentially involve 2-dimentional planes rather than conventionally known as two independent single-axis orthogonal lines reading an angle one-axis at a time. Dual-axis simultaneous angles display and real-time continuous tracking of tilted-plane angular readings are required to guide field engineers in aligning precision object/machine to a required position accurately, speedily and effectively.
Digi-Pas® pioneered world's-first 2-axis MEMS digital leveling instrument, sensor module and inclinometer (US granted patents) embedded with vibrometer offers superior performance with ability to operate in a very unforgiving/harsh operating environment (e.g. high shock/impact, temperature & water) which empower application engineers/scientists in eradicating constraints previously difficult or unable to do with traditional 'bubble' spirit level or conventional single-axis pendulum/servo-based/optical inclinometers.

The following are application samples in various industries for convenient reference. Many of these pictures are obtained resulting from our user's generous courtesy while others are provided for solely illustrative purpose.
Digi-Pas® DWL-5000XY & DWL5500XY sensor modules have been utilized by leading companies in autonomous vehicles or driveless cars as part of the advanced control system to detect and interpret car's real-time inclination/angular position in various road conditions assisting to negotiate appropriate navigation path when subjected to tilt-related obstacles.
Digi-Pas® DWL-200 helps to save a significant amount of time for building and setup of high performance racing car. It is used to measure suspension arm angles for computer analysis and to confirm the car frame is levelled prior to setup. Checking of wheel cambers, caster angles, rear wing angle, and straightness of side pods are able to be accomplished accurately and speedily.
In automobile maintenance, suspension and wheel alignment are important steps to minimize wear, optimize tires performance and improve car's safety and stability. During maintenance process, Digi-Pas® DWL-180S is mounted on a jig to form a camber caster gauge which is used to measure and get positive caster angle and optimal camber angle.
Angle of elevation for car rear spoiler is checked and adjusted timely using Digi-Pas® DWL-200 which is portable and light weight. Ensuring optimum spoiler angle helps to decrease drag, increase efficiency in speed and decrease fuel consumption.
In automation manufacturing applications, Digi-Pas® DWL-3000XY is used to set robot welding angles, robotic assembly arms and precision automatic manipulators.
