Overview POSITILT®

POSITILT® inclination sensors measure inclination between 0 and +/-180° non-contact, wear-free and absolute. Utilizing MEMS technology,  POSITILT® inclination sensors are extremely resistant to shock, vibration and dirt and are therefore suited for outdoor and even underwater applications.

POSITILT® inclination sensors are available in a ultra-compact 10mm flat stainless housing and in a stainless steel housing that fits redundant electronics. Both housing types are hermetically sealed and therefore suited for harsh environmental conditions. For underwater applications a special housing type is available.

Advantages at a glance:

  • Non-contact, wear-free
  • Measurement range +/-180°
  • Resistant to shock and vibration
  • MEMS-technology
  • Protection class up to IP68/IP69
  • Measurement with 1 or 2 axes


 

Applications

POSITILT® inclination sensors are designed for applications in harsh environments such as mobile machines, commercial vehicles and solar power plants. For applications in outdoor environments POSITILT® inclination sensors are available in robust hermetically sealed stainless steel housings.

The functional principle

POSITILT® inclination sensors measure inclination utilizing micro-electromechanic sensor technology (MEMS). With the dislocation of a small test mass in a spring-mass-system, they are able to measure the inclination of the system.
