Our tilt switches (also referred to as a safety switch or tilt switch sensor module) are very similar to our inclinometers, but instead of a continuous output, tilt switches have a discrete on/off output from either a relay or an open collector. The angle where the tilt switch output changes can be set to specific ranges in one or two axes, up to ±45° tilt. These tilt switches come in plastic or metal housings, environmentally sealed up to IP66, with a cable and flying leads that can be customized with almost any connector you specify. The trip angle can be set by us at the factory or set and reset by you in the field.
The nature of the relay and open collector outputs make these units ideal for various tilt switch applications like construction vehicles and agricultural vehicles. More specific tilt switch applications include boom lifts, scissor lifts, and agricultural sprayers.
