Models 84064-02 & 59579-02 Wide-Angle Ceramic Sensors

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).
