Inclinometer Sensors /Tilt Sensors
An inclinometer is a sensor used for measuring angles, mainly for tilt, slope or elevation of an object with respect to gravity. They are known by several names such as tilt sensor, inclinometer or even pitch & roll indicator.
The most common inclinometer is for measuring single axis X or dual axis X & Y axis however on request, the Z axis can be measured using a separate device. All incorporate the latest high-performance MEMs sensing technology and are further enhanced with internal compensation circuitry for high accuracy performance and long-term stability.
The only other consideration should be the output required. Current outputs (4-20mA) can be used for long transmissions up to 2000 metres. Analogue outputs are most common having 0-5, 0-10V, 0.5-4.5V or even +/-5 or 10V. Digital output version are available such as RS-232, RS-485, TTL, PWM and CAN.
