These electrolytic tilt sensors are designed to give mid-range measurement up to ±25° with very high accuracy of at least ±0.005° in one axis. This means you’ll need two sensors to measure in two axes. These sensors are much less expensive than any of our glass solutions, but they're slightly more expensive than our wide-range sensors.
All electrolytic sensors require an electrolytic tilt sensor circuit (commonly referred to as signal conditioning or a signal conditioner) to provide an angle output. This circuit can be built into your system or you can purchase circuitry we’ve designed. Our circuits are optimized for the best performance from our sensors.
