0729-1763-XX ±45° RS-232/Relay Tilt Switch

Part Number: 0729-1763-XX

Our tilt switches (also referred to as a safety switch or tilt switch sensor module) are very similar to our inclinometers, but instead of a continuous output, tilt switches have a discrete on/off output from either a relay or an open collector. This tilt switch has 4 relay outputs which can be set to trip at specific angles in two axes, up to ±45° tilt. This tilt switch comes in a plastic housing that is environmentally sealed up to IP67, with a D-sub 15-pin (DB15) connector that can also be customized with almost any connector you specify. The trip angle can be set by us at the factory or set and reset by you in the field via the RS-232 communications.

The nature of the relay outputs makes this unit ideal for various tilt switch applications like construction vehicles and agricultural vehicles. More specific tilt switch applications include boom lifts, scissor lifts, and agricultural sprayers.
