New DIS QG inclination sensors - acceleration sensors - tilt switches

Inclination sensors - acceleration sensors - tilt switches | DIS Sensors

The new generation of tilt switches from DIS Sensors are based on MEMS technology and intelligent microcontroller algorithms. As a result, single or twin axis switches can be implemented with any desired switching angle. The output can be NPN or PNP. An internal buzzer is available as an option. All in a QG40 housing. Even more accurate tilt switches with higher thermal stability can be executed using the QG65 housing. Read more about tilt switches by DIS Sensors.

A tilt switch is a type of switch that switches at a certain angle as compared to the horizon (similar to the old mercury switch). It is in fact an inclinometer with a switching output. Since gravity serves as a reference (same as for inclinometers) and because of the posibility to mount the sensor anywhere, maximum mounting freedom is achieved.

Tilt switches are used for various applications, such as: signaling valve positions and maximum tilt security.

The tilt switch housing
Many of the DIS sensors in the QG range use a unique universal plastic housing concept, known as QUADRO®. The advantage is the very compact size, simple installation and the fact that the electronics are fully sealed which provides a high degree of ingress protection (IP67). The housing is also available in metal (aluminum and stainless steel).
