TILT-5x Series – Dynamic Inclinometer

The TILT-5x dynamic inclinometer / tilt sensor family is a series of high performance, high resolution three axis digital dynamic or gyro compensated inclinometers that use the latest miniature technology in the form of accelerometer and gyroscope MEMS sensors. It is contained within a robust aluminum housing and several interface options such as USB, RS232, RS485, RS422, and 3.3 VTTL UART.

Industrial design

TILT-50A Series benefits from a blue anodized aluminum case. These sensors are tested to satisfy IP67 certification and can temporarily be immersed in 1 meter depth of water.

Versatile interface

The 6-Pin connectors for TILT-50A series are IP67 certified and guarantee the consistency of data communication in harsh environments. Output supported protocols are RS232, RS422, RS485, USB, SSI, and wireless

Smart data communication

TILT-50A series benefit from two LEDs that show the communication status of sensors while receiving data, sending data or computing offline.
