New single-axis tilt alert switch for cost-effective out of level position indication

New single-axis tilt alert switch for cost-effective out of level position indication Variohm EuroSensor has expanded its range of inclinometers with the new IS-120 single-axis tilt alert switch for simple yet effective slope indication - where in-range and out-of-range inclination or level position needs to be safely monitored. The reliable reed switch technology switch with SPST (Form A) action is designed for vertical axis installation, operating a contact closure at <-10º, with contact release at <+10°C.

Aimed at heavy duty applications, the fully sealed IS-120 has an IP65 rating and is built to withstand the high levels of shock and vibration that may be found in off-road automotive or heavy industrial equipment - but the reliable and low-cost switch is equally suited to lighter duty use. Existing applications include safe level position monitoring for truck bonnets, robot arms and storage vessel closures where its mercury-free construction suits contamination-safe installation.

The IS-120 operates from a 48 VDC supply with a 0.5 A rated switching current. The compact unit measures approximately 42 x 15 x 28 mm with simple 2-hole mounting and lead wire connection. Its operation temperature range is -40ºC to +125ºC.

Variohm EuroSensor designs, manufactures and sources a comprehensive range of sensor technologies for linear and rotary position, load, force, vibration and temperature - providing complete pre-sale and post-sale application support for demanding measurement applications throughout industry, agriculture, construction, autosports and research.
