1-6200-008 RS-485 Signal Conditioner - Electrolytic Tilt Sensor Circuit

Part Number: 1-6200-008

Electrolytic tilt sensors require a basic electrolytic tilt sensor circuit to generate a tilt angle output. These are often called signal conditioners, signal conditioning boards, or electronic tilt sensors. The 0717 series TrueTILT™ dual/two-axis tilt sensors can be mounted directly on these boards for a complete inclinometer solution. Other single/one axis 0703 series TrueTILT™ and glass tilt sensors must be mounted externally and connected with wires.

This electrolytic tilt sensor circuit has RS-485 communications and mounting holes, making it simple to integrate into your own design. If you’d like to integrate the electrolytic tilt sensor circuit PCB into your own circuit design, The Fredericks Company can offer bills of material, Gerber files, and firmware source files along with engineering support for the integration. We have electrical/hardware, firmware, and mechanical design engineers on staff to assist with this process.

6200 series signal conditioners – The 1-6200-005 is part of this series of signal conditioners which can be configured with any Fredericks electrolytic tilt sensor. Other output options include analog, PWM, RS-232, and RS-485. The electrolytic tilt sensor and signal conditioner are provided separately or as an assembly with the sensor already installed.

0729 series inclinometers – These inclinometers utilize Fredericks TrueTilt™ wide range electrolytic tilt sensors and signal conditioners. They have a variety of outputs including analog, RS-232, and RS-485. These inclinometers have low profiles and robust plastic housings with epoxy potting to provide excellent durability and environmental protection.
