This tilt sensor uses solid state 3D-MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) technology to measure the
sensor's inclination relative to earth's gravity. It has a measurement range of ±60° and provides a 0.5 to
4.5Vdc output signal over this range, with a nominal 2.5Vdc at 0° tilt. This product's housing is manufactured
using  a corrosion resistance engineered polymer molding and has a protection rating of IP68. The tilt sensor
can withstand operating temperatures from -40°C to +125°C and has been tested to withstand shocks of
20,000g. With an EMC immunity of 100V/m, this inclinometer is ready for the harshest applications.
