0729-1763-XX ±45° RS-232/Relay Tilt Switch

Discontinued: The direct replacement is our Fredericks Tilt Switches.

Part Number: 0729-1763-XX

Features and Benefits:

  • ±45° programmable trip points
  • Dual/two-axis measurement tilt switch
  • 4 simple to use relay outputs
  • Response time of ≤100 ms
  • Wide voltage supply range of 6.5 V DC to 40 V DC
  • Works with industry-standard 12 and 24 V DC vehicle batteries
  • Low current device drawing 30 mA at 12 V DC; low power consumption
  • D-sub 15 pin connector (DB15) for simple integration
  • Superior performance in extreme temperatures and environments
  • Excellent customer support

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. This tilt switch has 4 relay outputs which can be set to trip at specific angles in two axes, up to ±45° tilt. This tilt switch comes in a plastic housing that is environmentally sealed up to IP66, with a D-sub 15-pin (DB15) connector that can also 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 via the RS-232 communications.

The nature of the relay outputs makes this unit 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.
