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 is mounted on mobile heavy-lift crane system for continuous monitoring and timely providing tilt angle versus crane elevation position to the crane operator in ensuring field operational safety control and management.
A site inspector or supervisor would conveniently clip Digi-Pas® DWL-130 on various lengths of spirit level available on work sites and turns it into a digital level. The DWL-130 is easily kept in pocket and thus frees up hands.
Digi-Pas® DWL-1000XY provides the advantage for a solution to measure vertical and horizontal axis concurrently when erecting steel-beam structures, typically in ensuring column bases are lined and level and columns are plumb. Precisely erecting the entire frame levelled with appropriate orientation is vital to ensure stability, strength and rigidity of steel structures.
The IP65 waterproof feature of Digi-Pas® DWL-680Pro is useful in drainage piping installation and repair works. Maintaining proper pipe elevation such as vertical position, horizontal slope and alignment between pipe ends maximize water drainage and prevent clogged drainage.
Gutters and downpipes installation utilized the Digi-Pas® DWL-200 for effective roof drainage system to divert and carry rain water. The in/ft and mm/M digital reading speed up adjustment of gutter inclination angle to a particular slope for different gutter length.
Elevator installation in high-rise building makes use of Digi-Pas® DWL-3000XY to assist in alignment of elevator rails with the accompanying laser beams. It is also used to inspect and maintenance of guide rails to be plumb and straight within the required position for smooth and safe operations.
Digi-Pas® DWL-280, DWL-600 and DWL-1000XY are effectively used in erecting telecommunication tower repeaters located on various landscapes. The digital levels are used in tower periodic maintenance inspection to monitor positional stability with changes in land foundation.
Digi-Pas® DWL-3500XY 2-Axis model is used in railway maintenance & operation.
Digi-Pas® DWL-3000XY is used in railway maintenance & operation to detect rail tracks deformation and elevation variations. It is a useful tool in aids for rail lines realignment, repair and construction of a new rail line. Accurate rail tracks longitudinal profile levelling and transversal alignment lead to enhanced safety standard for high speed railway operation.
DIY satellite dish aligning has become speedy and effortlessly with Digi-Pas® DWL-80E & DWL-200 Digital Levels. It is used to ensure the mast/pole for the receiver is levelled and the dish is at targeted elevation to optimise satellite signal.
