  • This switch to use metal material manufacturing, electrical characteristics and mercury switch similar but no mercury switch risk and environmental problems, and the shaking of the single guide through the same properties, assembly use more convenient security.
  • When the electric property to restore open state (OFF), switch Settings environment must be static, and (OFF) open terminal Settings should be below the horizontal angle.
  • Normally open/closed (depending on installation orientation)
  • It contains a metallic ball inside that will commute the two pins of the device from CLOSED to OPEN if the sensor exceeds a certain angle and vice versa.

Tilt Sensor

Tilt sensors allow you to detect orientation or inclination. They are small, inexpensive, low-power and easy-to-use. If used properly, they will not wear out. Their simplicity makes them popular for toys, gadgets and appliances.

This sensors is a solution for where you need detect when something has shifted from it’s desired orientation. It’s a simple ball-in-a-sleeve that when rolled to one end closes a contact. Actually, it’s a pair of balls, the second ball reinforces the bridging of the contacts by the first ball.

In it’s simplest application, it could be hung straight down and would close only if it were swung over 90° in any orientation. Team up 2 or 3, adjust the angles, and you could have it report when orientation shifts past any one of their angles. Sort of a really poor-man’s gyro/g-force sensor.

Note: The orientation of the pins will affect the responsiveness of the sensor. Laid horizontally, the balls will bridge the sensor pins much more easily than if the pins are laid vertically.

Applications:

  • To detect the position of hand-held game systems and in game controllers
  • To indicate the roll of boats, vehicles and aircraft
  • To measure the angle at which a satellite antenna 'looks' toward a satellite
  • To estimate the height of a tree or building
  • To measure the steepness of a ski slope
  • To provide a warning system for the surface tilt angle of cryogenic liquids during transportation
  • To monitor laser levels and seismic activity

1. What is a Tilt sensor?

  • A tilt sensor is a device that measures the tilt of a reference plane along multiple axes. Tilt sensors are used in a variety of applications to measure the tilting position of gravity. They make it simple to detect orientation or inclination.

2. What is a tilt sensor used for?

  • A tilt sensor, also known as a tilt switch, is a device that measures an object's tilt in multiple axes concerning an absolute level plane. Tilt sensors are used to detect the position of handheld gaming systems and in-game controllers, to indicate the roll of boats, vehicles, and aircraft, to measure the angle at which a satellite antenna 'looks' toward a satellite, to estimate the height of a tree or building, to measure the steepness of a ski slope, to provide a warning system for the surface tilt angle of cryogenic liquids during transportation, and to monitor laser levels and seismic activity.

3. How do tilt switches work?

  • Tilt switches send a change-of-state signal to other devices to communicate. These devices receive a signal from the tilt sensor and turn it on or off in response to changes in motion or orientation. They accomplish this by building an artificial horizon and measuring the angular tilt around it. Some products are unable to open or close a switch.

4. How do you test a tilt sensor?

  • It is simple to test your tilt sensor. Switch your multimeter to continuity mode and connect the probes to the two leads. Then tilt the switch to determine the angle at which it opens and closes. When pointing down, the switch is in the Open Loop position (no continuity).
