0703-0711-99 ±3° TrueTILT™ Electrolytic Tilt Sensor
This electrolytic tilt sensor (also sometimes called an electronic tilt sensor) gives narrow range measurement up to ±3° with high accuracy of ±0.001° in one axis (single-axis measurement). This means that you’ll need two sensors to read in two axes (with orthogonal mounting, or mounted at a 90° angle). It has an industrial-grade, all-metal, and hermetically sealed sensor design for use in the most extreme environments. This sensor the highest accuracy TrueTILT™ metal sensor we offer, but it’s also higher cost than similar TrueTILT™ 0717 series sensors. But remember, it’s still lower cost than all of our glass electrolytic sensors.
All electrolytic sensors require an electrolytic tilt sensor circuit (also commonly referred to as signal conditioning or a signal conditioner) to provide a tilt angle output. This can be built into your system or you can purchase an electrolytic tilt sensor circuit we’ve designed. Our circuits are optimized for the best performance from our electronic tilt sensors.

The following terms are often used interchangeably, though they have slightly different meanings; tilt sensor, electrolytic tilt sensor, electronic tilt sensor.

6200 series signal conditioners – These signal conditioners can be configured with the 0703-0711-99 or any other Fredericks Company tilt sensor. They have a variety of outputs including analog, PWM, RS-232, RS-485 and SPI. The sensor and board are provided separately or as an assembly with the sensor already installed at the customer’s request.
TrueTILT™ series sensors – The 0703-0711-99 is part of this series, which includes narrow, mid and wide range sensors that have different operating specifications to fit specific customer requirements.
In order to offer the world’s most energy-efficient infrastructure monitoring system, Resensys needed a durable tilt sensor with accuracy up to a thousandth of a degree and a minimum 10 year lifespan outdoors with no calibration or maintenance needed. Read the case study to find out how Fredericks’ 0703-0711-99 is used to monitor structures around the world.
