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.
