The Penny+Giles STT series of sealed tilt sensors, available from Control Devices (Aust) , have been developed to offer accurate, reliable and fit-and-forget tilt measurement sensing for harsh operating environments and applications. Two different models are available in the STT sealed tilt sensors series, including:
- The STT280 – compact 28mm diameter body with crush proof inserts in the mounting flange.
- The STT500 – equipped with a rugged, marine grade cast aluminium housing.
Solid state 3D-MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) technology is used to measure the sensor’s inclination in relation to earth’s gravity. The sealed tilt sensors feature a measurement range from ±10° to ±60° and provide a 0.5 to 4.5Vdc output signal over these angular ranges, with a nominal 2.5Vdc at 0° tilt. This technology allows the STT series to perform in reliability, stability and compactness over fluid based, electrolytic and pendulum operated sensors.
