These electrolytic tilt sensors are have narrow range measurement from ±3° to ±0.5° with extremely high accuracy of ±0.0008° to ±0.0001° in one axis. This means you’ll need two sensors to measure in two axes. These sensors are more expensive than any of our TrueTILT™ metal solutions because of their higher accuracy and glass design.
All electrolytic sensors require electrolytic tilt sensor circuits (commonly referred to as signal conditioning or signal conditioners) to provide an angle output. This circuit can be built into your system or you can purchase circuitry that we’ve designed that’s optimized for the best performance from our sensors.
