Topic: Arduino, Non-mercury vibration sensors and more (Read 963 times) previous topic - next topic


Hi everyone,
I couldn't find something with the search of the forum, is it broken ?
Anyway I am working on a installation where I need to use some arduino. As you might have allready understood, I am a newbee in hardware.
Does Anyone knows about those tilt vibration sensors ( http://www.rapidonline.com/productinfo.aspx?tier1=Electronic+Components&tier2=Sensors&tier3=Tilt%2FTip+Switches&tier4=Non-mercury+vibration+sensors&moduleno=72379 ). I think they are just like normal tilt sensors but because I am not buying with my money and I need something like 25,35 of those I prefer to ask for advises.
Also, they are out of stock on this website, I can't find a proper website for buying sensors in the UK, believe me I've been searching. I found a few but can't find those Non-mercury vibration sensors or flex sensors.
Thankssssssss :)


if you simply need a Hg-Free tilt switch you can find one at
Search for "tilt" on the main page to find the component

HI wayoda,

Thanks for the link. I think the vibration one works in any position/angle. The normal tilt sensor works within a certain angle. Never used them but it's what I understood from the datasheets. I imagine you used them before anyway. ;)

Thank you very much for your reply and the link.
