Fredericks TrueTILT™ tilt sensor line offers both electrolytic tilt sensors and MEMS technology for an innovative and proven method of measuring anywhere from ±90° down to ±0.5° with high accuracy ranging from ±0.1° (±360 arcseconds) to ±0.0003° (or ±1 arcsecond). Generally, as the range of a tilt sensor decreases, the accuracy increases, which can be seen by looking at our tilt measurement options below. Note that our highest accuracy and glass sensor solutions are typically higher cost, and we’re here to help with cost-benefit analysis of specific solutions. Our tilt sensors are used in a wide variety of applications ranging from RV leveling and construction vehicle leveling to extremely high accuracy markets like geotechnical and structural health monitoring.
In addition to the tilt sensor component for board level designs, we also offer complete electrolytic tilt sensor circuits, electrolytic inclinometers, and MEMS inclinometers that are environmentally sealed and designed for industrial and outdoor use. We have an engineering department including electrical, PCB layout, software/firmware, and mechanical design expertise, so we’ll work with you to build a solution specific to your needs. A complete list of all of our tilt measurement solutions is below.
