Tilt Sensors

Cost-effective, MEMS-based single-axis and dual-axis tilt sensor modules with internal signal conditioning, environmental packaging, and analog or digital output options.

NEW!  The MTLT Family of tilt and inclination sensors provide either accurate pitch and roll information over a range of 0 ± 90° or, for a single axis of rotation, a range of 0 ±180°. They offer a convenient RS-232 interface and built in programmable tilt alarm feature ideal for tilt safety applications. The MTLT1xxS modules are designed for static inclination applications, such as platform leveling or solar array monitoring. The MTLT1xxD are gyro compensated inclinometers designed to be used in dynamic inclination applications such as on moving vehicle. The MTLT1 series are packaged in an IP67 rated plastic enclosure and operate from an unregulated 9 to 32 V supply.

The CXTA and CXTLA series offer an easy-to-use signal conditioned 0-5V analog output. The CXTA provides a wide measurement range of ±75 degrees, while the high-resolution CXTLA offers higher accuracy over a ±20 degrees measurement range. The zero-angle voltage and sensitivity are stable over the lifetime of the device. The CXTA/CXTLA modules operate from unregulated power supply inputs of 6 to 30 VDC and are available with a plastic or high-temperature metal housing.

The CXTILT series provides a fully-calibrated, temperature-compensated two-axis digital output with outstanding resolution, dynamic response and accuracy. The CXTILT offers user-configurable bandwidth and resolution to meet a wide variety of demanding applications.
