DIS - Tilt switches

dis-neigungsschalterA 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 maximum mounting freedom is achieved.

The 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. A SIL1 / PLc tilt switch for safety applications completes the portfolio. An optional configurator is available to configure the switch (angles, delay times, filtering).
