Fluid-based capacitive tilt sensor measures over 360° with high precision
Application example: 3D-control for excavating machines
Inclination sensors measure the orientation angle of an object in relation to the environmental gravitational field. They are used in many applications including construction machinery, wind turbines, solar tracking and machine leveling systems. They are also used for automotive applications and medical equipment as well as in the consumer market.
