Inclination switches may be installed in stationary or mobile applications, in which it is necessary to measure and safely supervise any kind of an angle. The moment a preset angle has been reached, the respective switching output will open or close. Typical cases of application of inclination switches (which are often also called crash sensors due to their case of operation) are tilt protection devices, lifting platforms, forklifts, cranes, excavators, agricultural machinery, truck trailers and also a lot of electric car charging stations. But inclinations switches are also required and very useful in many more different areas such as mobile homes, yachts, off-road vehicles or wind power plants.
Inclination Switches / Inclination Sensors from MP-SENSOR
The electronic inclination switches from MP-SENSOR, also called inclinometers, are equipped with either transistor outputs or relay outputs. They are designed for professional continuous operation and excel by highest quality and accuracy as well as through a robust, compact and an easy-to-assemble design. The sensor element and the electronics are protected against environmental influences excellently by a durable metal housing and the potting compound. All MP-SENSOR inclination switches do not use any mercury at all and are temperature compensated. Angles are measured contactless by a modern, highly accurate Micro Electromechanical System (MEMS) with intelligent evaluation by a micro controller.
