Control Devices (Aust) makes available the Penny+Giles STT Series of Sealed Tilt Sensors

Supplier News

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.  
These tilt sensors are typically used in demanding tilt measurement applications such as road construction equipment, cranes and booms, agricultural vehicles, container handling, hydraulic lift systems and scissor lifts.  

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.
