755- and 756-Series Miniature Tilt Sensors contain one or two of our electrolytic tilt transducers in a solid stainless steel or aluminum housing, with holes for vertical or horizontal mounting. These are the same high-precision sensors that we use in our 500– and 700-Series tiltmeters. Several of the models are available in vacuum-compatible versions designed for minimal outgassing under high-vacuum conditions. Two options are available, the high-gain 755-Series and mid-range 756-Series. Typical applications for these compact modules include X-ray mirrors, telescope mounts, wind tunnel models, and medical devices. The sensors may be operated at a distance (cable length) up to 100m from their Jewell Instruments signal conditioner.
The Model 84053 Mid-range Ceramic Tilt Sensor is a compact and robust electrolytic tilt sensor with up to 1.75 µradian resolution. This precision sensor has a fast warm-up, high sensitivity, high repeatability, and excellent long-term stability. It is mounted on an anodized aluminum bracket that strengthens the assembly and simplifies the installation and repositioning of this versatile product. (Model 59577 is the same sensor without a mounting bracket). All 84053 and 59577 Ceramic Tilt Sensors include calibration over ±3° when ordered with Jewell electronics (or specify special/custom calibrated ranges on order). Use the 84053/59577 sensor for precision OEM applications where small size and peak performance are key such as leveling and positioning in a variety of test and measurement applications.
If your compass application involves vibration, acceleration, uneven terrain, or rough seas, the ECG Series, a gyro-stabilized electronic compass, is an uncompromising solution that will outperform rival units that cost more. The ECG provides remarkably accurate heading, pitch, and roll in dynamic conditions. It all starts with a precision 3-axis solid-state magnetometer. Two angular rate gyros independently stabilize pitch and roll. They augment a dual-axis, electrolytic tilt sensor that provides precise tilt measurements in static environments. Two sets of independent filters, one set for pitch and one for roll, combine gyro and electrolytic sensor measurements to provide the best available tilt measurements.
The ECS digital compass represents the state-of-the-art in magnetic compassing. It combines a precision 3-axis solid-state magnetometer and a rugged 2-axis electrolytic tilt sensor to provide accurate heading and tilt measurements over a wide range of environmental conditions. The firmware and signal processing algorithms have been refined and improved over three prior generations of compasses to deliver the ultimate in performance from the available sensor data.
This geotechnical MEMS tiltmeter is available in uniaxial and biaxial configurations. It presents a robust and rugged design for outdoor geotechnical use, but with the benefit of low-cost MEMS technology and ±5VDC, 0-5 VDC, or 4-20 mA output signals. It is an effective tilt sensing solution for platform leveling/positioning, structural monitoring, construction monitoring, industrial machinery positioning, radial gate measurement & control.
The Model 84064-02 Wide-angle Ceramic Tilt Sensor is a high-precision electrolytic tilt sensor with terrific linearity over a full ±75° of angular range. The alumina sensor has a fast warm-up and excellent thermal, mechanical, and long-term stability. It is mounted on an anodized aluminum bracket for strength and easy installation (Model 59579-02 is the same sensor without the mounting bracket). The small and lightweight assembly attaches directly to the elements you want to measure, without unbalancing them or altering their performance. Use the 84064-02 and 59579-02 sensor for wide-angle sensor applications where high performance and linearity over range are key. Use any of our analog or digital signal conditioning units for operating these sensors.
All 84064-02 and 59579-02 Ceramic Tilt Sensors include calibration over ±50° when ordered with Jewell electronics (or specify special/custom calibrated ranges on order).
