Analyzing the opening behavior of a car tailgate

Tailgates of motor vehicles can be opened and closed automatically. The tailgate is partly guided by hand up to an opening angle of about 15 degrees and then opens fully automatically. After hitting the stops, the tailgate must not visibly post-oscillate. The high-precision INC5701D inclinometers from Micro-Epsilon are used in order to precisely analyze this opening behavior. In addition to the INC5701D inclination sensor, the measurement was also carried out using a rotary angle sensor as a reference. The inclination sensor is to replace it. While both systems provide precise and reliable measurement values, the Micro-Epsilon inclinometer provides significant advantages during installation
