84053 & 59577 Mid-Range Ceramic Sensor Assembly

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.
