Topic: Selection of tilt sensor (Read 403 times) previous topic - next topic


Dear all,
I am looking for tilt sensor IC . which can out put analog voltage 0~5v.
Can you suggest the IC model available . easily compatible with arduino board.

The measuring range of the sensor must be around +/-90 degree.

here i have attached some tilt sensor i explored.I dont how to choose these sensor.

what is meant by Acceleration Range: ± 10g . What is used for.

All those sensors measure acceleration. They are not designed to measure tilt. They will measure tilt if they are perfectly still but their main use is to measure acceleration. Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity.
