Our MEMS tilt sensors and inclinometers are the only products we offer that utilize MEMS core tilt sensing technology. These analog and digital inclinometers are metal housed, environmentally-sealed analog and digital inclinometer sensors with an IP (ingress protection rating) of IP67. Inclinometers are used in many markets and industries including construction and agricultural vehicles where inclinometers provide safety information and other vehicle parameters to the operator.
These analog and digital inclinometer sensors offer a ±90° operating range with accuracy of ±0.1° with optional outputs of analog 0 to 5 V DC and RS-485 digital communications. Analog and digital inclinometers with MEMS tilt sensors are higher cost than our electrolytic inclinometer sensors because of the high accuracy internal MEMS sensor, t. For a lower cost option, view our electrolytic inclinometer sensors.
To learn more about the principles of electrolytic tilt sensing and how to integrate digital inlcinometers and MEMS tilt sensors into your application, see our Technical Information page.
What’s the difference between an analog inclinometer and a digital inclinometer?
We get this question a lot. Typically an analog inclinometer is an inclinometer with an analog output, such as a voltage (like 0 to 5 V DC) or a current (4 to 20 mA). A digital inclinometer has a digital output, also called digital communications, like CAN Bus, RS-232, RS-485, SPI, or USB, among many others.
What’s the difference between an analog inclinometer, digital inclinometer, inclinometer sensor, MEMS sensor, and MEMS tilt sensor?
We get this question a lot too. Though there can be subtle differences between these different terms, many people use them interchangeably. You can always contact us with any questions if you need more information!
