Tilt Switch
The TADII - Threshold Angle Detector from Spectron is a dual axis inclinometer that functions as an electronic tilt switch. By combining an electrolytic tilt sensor with custom electronics, this tilt switch actuates when the set threshold angle is reached, and resets after it is tilted back within predetermined limits. The TADII is ideal for replacing an antiquated mercury switch or mechanical ball-in-tube type tilt switch device with solid state/digital technology. In addition, unlike a mercury switch, the TADII contains no toxic ingredients.
