Tilt Switches

When it comes to determining orientation or inclination, you want a tilt switch that stands up to the challenge.

Our trained technicians develop instruments and applications on-site, including tilt switch sensors and tilt switch modules, ensuring your team has access to superior tools from the outset. Small, low-power and easy-to-use, too many tilt switches break or fail under the pressure – it may be small, but the importance of a mining tilt switch for example cannot be overstated.
