Tilt sensors intended for remote areas

July 19, 2012 3:42 pm | Product Releases | Comments

Columbia Research Laboratories has developed a family of electronic tilt sensors based on force balance accelerometer technology intended for applications such as platform stabilization, surface mapping, and measuring tilt angles in remote locations. These low cost, high performance, extremely accurate sensors produce a high level, low impedance output proportional to the sine of the tilt angle. All models feature unique damping and desensitization circuitry that allows tilt measurements in strong vibration and shock environments. These inclinometers are self-contained requiring no additional signal conditioning in most application
