Our tilt switches (also referred to as a safety switch or tilt switch sensor module) are very similar to our inclinometers, but instead of a continuous output, tilt switches have a discrete on/off output from either a relay or an open collector. This tilt switch has 2 open collector outputs, which can be set to trip at specific angles on one axis, up to ±45° tilt. This tilt switch comes in a plastic housing, IP50 environmental protection (epoxy potting is available upon request for IP66 protection), and a flying leads cable that can be customized with almost any connector you specify. The trip angle can be set by us at the factory or set and reset by you in the field via a hardware switch on the unit.

The nature of the open collector output makes this unit ideal for various tilt switch applications like construction vehicles and agricultural vehicles. More specific tilt switch applications include boom lifts, scissor lifts, and agricultural sprayers. Not sure how an open collector output works? Check out the product manual under Documentation.
