These electrolytic tilt sensors are designed to give narrow range measurement up to ±3° with very high accuracy of at least ±0.001° in one axis. This means that you’ll need two sensors to measure in two axes. These sensors are slightly more expensive than our wide-range sensors, but comparable in cost to our mid-range sensors. They're also much less expensive than any of our glass solutions.
All electrolytic tilt sensors require an electrolytic tilt sensor circuit (commonly referred to as signal conditioning or a signal conditioner) to provide a tilt output. This electrolytic tilt sensor circuit can be built into your system or you can purchase circuitry we’ve designed. Our circuitry is optimized for the best performance from our sensors.
