Accurate measurement of the degree of tilt or inclination from a horizontal position is very important for many motion control systems or to ensure safety. Inclination sensors offer an easy and efficient way of monitoring spatial orientation without the need for mechanical linkages – a real advantage for design engineers.

  • High Accuracy of 0.1° and Resolution of 0.01°
  • Measurement Range ±80° (Dual Axis) or 360° (Single Axis)
  • Analog Interfaces: Current, Voltage

TILTIX Inclinometer Fundamentals

–          Digital Interfaces

–          Ingress Protection Rating up to IP68, IP69K

–          Measurement Principle of MEMS Inclinometers


Inclinometers can significantly improve operating safety in mobile machines by continuously monitoring the tilt or inclination angles. Inclinometers are much easier and thus less expensive to install compared to Rotary Encoders, which makes them ideal for applications like solar trackers. Specific applications include:

–          Medical Equipment

–          Industrial Valves, Water Wastewater

–          Material Handling

–          Mobile Machines

–          Oil and Gas

–          Renewable Energy
